Summary: AS WE COME TO THE END OF 2016 AND ON THE THRESHOLD OF 2017 IT`S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT BECAUSE WHEN WE REFLECT BACK ON THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES IN 2016

Mark 10:46-52 (NIV) Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving

the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging.

[47] When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, "Jesus, Sonof David, have mercy on me!"

[48] Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more,

"Son of David, have mercy on me!"

[49] Jesus stopped and said, "Call him."So they called to the blind man, "Cheer up! On your feet! He's calling you." [50] Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

[51] "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him.The blind man said,

"Rabbi, I want to see."

[52] "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

VERY BRIEFLY WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD AND THE GUIDIANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND

THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS

I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT

(WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT IN 2017

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

AS WE COME TO THE END OF 2016 AND ON THE THRESHOLD OF 2017

IT`S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT

BECAUSE WHEN WE REFLECT BACK ON THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES IN 2015 WE ALL HAVE HAD OUR SHARE OF GOOD DAYS AS WELL BAD DAYS

WE HAD OUR UPS AS WELL AS WE HAD OUR DOWNS

AND WE ALL HAD OUR SHARE OF DANGERS TOILS AND SNARES BUT IN THE MIDIST OF IT ALL GOD HAS STILL BEEN MIGHTY GOOD TO EACH OF US

THAT S WHY I FEEL THAT MY CLAIM IS VALID

THAT WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT AS WE ENTER INTO THE YEAR 2016

BECAUSE SHOUTING----SHOUTING IS A GREAT INSTRUMENTAL TOOL IN GIVING GOD THE

PRAISES HE TRULY DESERVES

FOR EVEN THE PSALMIST REVEALS TO US IN 22ND NO.OF PSALMS VERSE 3

THAT GOD INHABIT THE PRAISES OF HIS PEOPLE

FOR SHOUTING SUGGEST GREAT VICTORY AS WELL GREAT PRAISE AND IF THE LORD HAS DONE ANYTHING FOR YOU IN 2015

YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT
