Ten Lepers Cleansed
Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”
Luke 17:11-19 NKJV
10 Lepers had a skin disease but only 1 told God thank you. God may have not given you all that you wanted but you should be thankful for the unanswered prayers. God will never give you more than you can handle. We need to be grateful for what we have and say thank you. Instead of looking at what is broken, look at what God has fixed. In everything, give thanks. When God sees, God solves.
- Seek God presence in the midst of your problems and watch God's precisions in which He promised.
- Dependence in God leads to deliverance from God. With Christ, all things are possible.
- Determined faith cannot be defeated.
