Be Thankful

Ok, so I know you feel inundated with people writing about thankfulness and then you saw this. Well, yes it is another but then again is it?   David writes in Psalm 138 humbling himself in God’s loving arms. He recognizes who God reaches closely to and who reaches out but just cannot seem to touch and feel the warm protection of God’s arms. Why does it seem that even in his riches, David consistently humbles himself? He knows God and always looks to Him no matter the circumstance. Yes he made mistakes and even broke the Commandments but God still made good on His promise due to David’s humility and the humiliation that he suffered later in life. God was always with him because of his faithfulness and thanksgiving. David knew who was in control and understood that in his wrongness, God would somehow make things right. 

Some people really miss the boat when it comes to trying to understand why God sometimes allows bad things to occur. We are tested on a daily basis by the Adversary but God will make good from the bad. Not right away and it might take a generation or two but it will happen. As we go about our lives in the world today, stay humble, do your best to do what’s right and even if you fail, remember God is with you and will get you back on track as long as you maintain your faith.
