In Psalm 66:12, The paslmist declares that God let men ride over their heads, that they, his people, went trhough fire and water, and then, "you brought us to a place of abundance."
The simple question today is not about where you are, but about where are you going
What is your place of abundance? What is it like? How wondeful is it? What is it worth to you? What would you sacrifice or face in order to arrive there? How vivid is it to you in your heart and mind?
Your answer to those questions of faith will regulate your capacity to over focus on the present and dwell in the challenges of the moment.
"Some through the fire, some through the flood, s
Some through great trials,
But all throught the blood,
Some through great trials, but God gives a song
In the night season and all the day long."
Keep on keeping on!
