God when are you going to help me pay off my debt, when are you going to help me with a car, how about my marriage, my kids, ermmm see i got turned down from that job, why can’t i afford to buy a house, i’m tired of eating chicken everyday, i need a new wardrobe, when are you going to heal me, i can’t even afford a holiday, when, when, when, when……
Take a pause and think about what God has done for you so far. If not for His grace and mercy we won’t even be alive. Think about where He picked you from and how far He has brought you. Life could have been worse. Take a pause for a second and give thanks. Like the song says “count your blessings, name them one by one, it will surprise you what the Lord has done”
“If the LORD had not been on our side when people attacked us, they would have swallowed us alive when their anger flared against us;” (Psalm 124:2-3).
“What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” (Psalm 8:4)
