God is good all the time. All the time, God is good.
Blessings are meant to "perk" you up to see God and not make you "casual" toward him.
Being blessed doesn't make you thankful.
God gave and gave and gave to the Israelites in the desert and yet they still were grumbling. How true it is that when we look around at our lives that we can also see how we too have not been thankful for the blessings we have.
Desire can trump intelligence.
What we want may not be good for us, but we pursue it anyway. We need to flee from idolatry...an idol is any thing or any person that comes between us and our relationship with God.
Verse 1:13: No temptation has overtaken you that is uncommon to man. GOD IS FAITHFUL and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide a way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
What a good reminder.....
