Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
 for his wonderful works to humankind.
And let them offer thanksgiving sacrifices,
and tell of his deeds with songs of joy.

Psalm 107: 21-22,

Declare His Wondrous Deeds

     When the phone rang and they heard the first doctor's report, it didn't sound too promising. Possible cancer was the last thing anyone expects to hear.

     God prepared the family ahead of time with his Word, his precious promises. They drew on the promises daily. They prayed, believed that he heard them when they prayed, and confessed his word in faith, looking beyond the natural to a supernatural God.

     The second doctor's appointment meant more x-rays and  tests, and each came back negative. The spot they had seen was completely gone! The doctors were amazed. They knew the spot was there. They had seen it on the x-rays, now it had vanished.

     We will declare his wondrous deeds. God is good all the time; we need to praise him all the time. Praise before the trials, during the trials and after the trials.

     In Luke, chapter 9, we find a woman with an issue of blood. The woman knew that if she could reach Jesus, she would be healed. She didn't quit. She pressed on until she finally made her way to him. I believe the crowd was very large, because the Bible says she pressed through the crowd, yet she continued to follow after him and then…. She reached out and touched him, he responded. She touched him in faith and with determination.

Luke 9: 47, 48
    When the woman saw that she could not remain hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before him, she declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed. He said to her "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.

     I wonder how often we simply give up too soon? WHAT IF, we press in as the woman with the issue of blood did? WHAT IF, he is moved with compassion?

Declare his wondrous deeds.
Dare to believe.
