Sunday Snippets: Praise, don't Pout!

Psalm 126:3 "The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad."

I don't know about you, but I know of some Christians who are very prone to look on the dark side of life. If you were to ask them to describe how their life living for Christ has been, they will dwell almost exclusively on the difficulties, the trials, the temptations, and their own failings. Does this sound like a healthy Christian to you? God has brought us up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay! He's set our feet upon a rock, and established our goings! (To quote the Psalmist). He has put a new song in our mouths, and made us new creatures! The Lord has done great and mighty things for us; I personally would rather dwell on that! YES, trials come...but He is there to hold our hand through it. (Hebrews 4:15-16) YES, temptations arise, but God always provides a way to escape, that we may be able to bear it, (1 Corinthians 10:13). YES, we will sin and fail Him, but we have an all-sufficient Saviour, Who is our advocate before The Father. (1 John 2:1) While I believe it would be wrong to deny that these things have happened, shouldn't we as children of The King, having been rescued from the flames of hell, be so much more focused on the good things He's done for us? I for one would like to start praising Him more for the amazing things He has provided me with, instead of lamenting all the "valleys" I've been through. :) Have a wonderful week in praise to The Lord!
P.S. Yes, this one turned out to be a Monday Snippet. ;) I was without internet on Saturday and Sunday, so just postponed my post. :)
