A lot of times I think, “God would you please comeback here or could I just come to you, so I’d be done dealing with struggles here on earth,” but then he said, “I gave you life, so that you may have it abundantly.”
John 10:10: The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
Life was not meant for survival or a bootcamp in any way; it was meant for praise, not because we have these blessings around us, but because His presence supersedes the petty things we worry about, and for those who believe in Him, we go up to another level until we become like Christ. A heart like heaven, never offended, never looking down on one’s self and other people, but always looking up to The glory of His Father.
Ephesians 3:20: “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Life was meant for praising God, in every season of life, so smile, pray, and worship God in His holiness!
Psalm 29:1: Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness.
The purpose of praising God is knowing He is there with us in joy or trials, in times of loneliness and when we are overwhelmed. To those who trust Him, there is great comfort, peace and love that you cannot help but praise Him for all His wonderful works towards you.
This is the reason why you and I can truly share Jesus to others. He has given us all that we need, and that is His presence out of His unfailing love for us.
