Sin is detrimental fun. Following God’s path is uplifting fun. The Lord works out everything for his own ends – even the wicked for a day of disaster. (Proverbs 16:4, NIV)
God is Real. In our attempts to understand God, define God, make our worship of God meaningful to us, make God relevant to our individual problems and prove God’s existence, we lose the true meaning of his infinite goodness and control. He is and we will never fully understand. We live by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7, NIV)
Positives changes in your life were not because of what you did but because of God’s interruptions. Love God because, God loved us first. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8, NIV)
Your losses due to the evil of others may be your greatest blessings. Don’t give up on God. After the pain you will find success and will be a blessing to others. But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” (Genesis 50:19-21)

God gives blessings, not insignificant gifts. His blessings are consistent with His will and purpose for your life. Plain gifts are what you want for your own edification. The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it. (Proverbs 10:22)
We worship to show respect, love and thanks for the gift of God’s blessings. As his blessings are continual we must often participate in worship. Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. (Psalm 105:1-2)
