    The Lord doesn't get enough praise, well not from me. Though life is a difficult existence for us, the alternative is death or a lifeless thing. Thankfully Jesus came to me and God raised me from my spiritual death being a lifeless man. But it does show the role of death in creation, being finite beings it gives greater importance to life. This is true whether it's physical or spiritual. Strangely we as humanity and I or you as a human can have another chance to start again. Generations of people to listen and learn from those before them. Similarly we spiritually can listen and learn dying of our old selves as we're born again in our new selves.

    Isn't God whether you know Him as the Creator or the Father wise? What one generation or one man can't or couldn't do, He did in the Son Jesus Christ. All of creation was by the Word of God, all of life in Jesus. God's infinite knowledge and power revealed to those who took the time to listen and live.

    Thanks in the Lord's name, God for the lives we've received by your grace and glory. I don't always appreciate what I have, but I love you for the moments of peace when I have no worries and understand how blessed I've been.

    Philippians 4:11-13

    "I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through Him who gives me strength."

    This is also a praise given to God, when we are content in Him through our Lord Jesus Christ's strenght. Learning to be content and thankful, even during times when it is difficult. Especially when times aren't easy, as it is easier feeling content and thankful when it isn't difficult! Knowing He will always provide for our needs, and that we will lack nothing in Him! He truly cares for us!

    It is good being reminded of His Word. As it gives us comfort and builds us up! Builds up our faith! Builds up our trust in Jesus Christ, builds up our trust in God! Builds up our trust in His given promises for us in Him! It is just good, being reminded of as well as well-grounded in His Word!

    We should always be prepared and aware, as the enemy doesn't sleeps! And he attacks the strongest when we are feeling weak and putting down our shield of faith as well as sword that is His Word!

    Like a thorn in the side life seems to use difficulty as a wake up call. I know some days I'm up in the clouds but start to get too comfortable and then those days come when you're really tested. That's when we need to be most content and thankful. Remember how good God was to us and that He continues with us in the Lord every day. Paul certainly has a way with words when understood in a related way to personal life it hits home (true for the whole Bible).

    Thank you for your thoughtful post, God bless CrownedPrincess!
