“Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Gen. 1:31)
The devil wants us to believe that life is bad. One way he tries to accomplish this is through all the bad news reported daily. Feeding too much on bad news is not good for you or me. You can get the top news stories without spending hours every day listening to the bad things the devil is trying to do on the earth.
If you think life is bad, you will be depressed, or maybe even bitter.
If you think life is good, you will be thankful.
No matter what the circumstances, there are always things to enjoy and rejoice about. If we focus on the goodness and greatness of God, all He has created and all He has done for us, life will seem good. If, instead, we focus on our pains and problems, we will not enjoy life much.
Even the bad things of life, which are all the result of sin, not what God did --- can benefit us IF they cause us to draw nearer to God and act on His word. God’s main purpose is to prepare us to be fit companions for Himself for eternity. What God wants you to do is submit to Him, feed on His word, be thankful, walk in faith, and let Him make you like Jesus Christ.
Think about this; if life is not good, then you need to make adjustments based on the Bible. When you see your cup as half full, instead of half empty --- life will be better for you. Take time to smell the flowers, and rejoice in all the goodness of God. Rejoice in all the beauty of God’s creation --- life. God made life, and it is very good.
