With Prayer and Thanksgiving
“Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Philippians 4:6
Sometimes we complain when we shouldn’t. I remember an occasion when I was driving across the country with a gentleman. At the time, all of our children were in private schools, and Joyce and I were “dying of mal-tuition.” I began complaining a little bit to the man about the great cost of sending a son to college. He looked at me and said, “I’d give anything in the world if my son would go to college.” I thought, “Oh, what an ungrateful spirit I have!”
Do you ever complain about dirty dishes? There are lots of folks in Third World countries that would like to have some dirty dishes. We are to be thankful in all things.
Rejoice in God’s blessings in your life. Nip that temptation in the bud to complain and grumble about your life today.

Scripture says that the seven miracles that the apostle John highlighted were intended as signs. The message they carried is proof that Jesus was who He said, the Son of God!
And these miracles hold great relevance in our lives today. As Dr. Rogers said, "Their purpose is to deepen our trust in Him, not in the miracles themselves." They serve as signposts pointing to Jesus, showing that He was and is God's answer to your deepest need --- to your disappointments, doubts, disabilities, desires, despair, darkness, and death.
This book will change the way you view God and His work in our lives.
