Being thankful will make a difference in your life and have a powerful influence on the life of others. A professor was preaching a revival for a student pastor whose wife was about to give birth. The pastor was late one night but came in before the service was over. The professor assumed the baby was being born and preached. The pastor came in during the sermon. During the invitation, he went to the professor and ask for prayer. He shared with the professor his daughter had been born with a bad birth defect, and he did not know what to do. The professor said, "You get on your knees and thank God for your blessing and share with the people about your blessing." The pastor said, "What?" The professor read these words that God said to Moses.

(Exodus 4:11) And the LORD said unto him, "Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?"

The pastor said, "Yes, praise God, I have got to go tell my wife she doesn't know." He races back to the hospital. When he enters the room, the wife is shouting, "Where is my baby." The pastor said, "Honey, God has given us a daughter." He read Exodus 4:11, to her the verse the professor shared with him. The pastor said, "The doctor says birth a defect, I say a blessing." The wife said, "You are right; bring me the blessing from God.

They called their parents. The operator of the switchboard hated preachers. When she heard the pastor and his wife giving thanks for the blessing God had given them, a daughter with a bad birth defect, the switchboard operator's heart was broken, and she began to tell others. The word went out through the hospital about the pastor and his wife being thankful. Over the next two weeks, 70 nurses attended the pastor's worship service, and 32 accepted Jesus as their Lord and savior.

It is time for us to thank God for some blessings we did not know we had. It will make a difference in our lives and the lives of others.
