It’s Easy To Love God When Things Are Going Well

Praising God because of who He is!

It’s easy to love God when things are going well.  When the blessings come my way, when my prayers are answered, when I’m feeling the “sun” shining down on me.
It’s easy to praise Him in those times. Easy to tell others to hang in there and that God has reasons for what He does.

It’s hard to praise God when things aren’t going well. When the job is terminated, the finances are a mess, and the bitter cold of the world seems to rest on your shoulders.

It’s harder to love Him when He seems so silent in answer to your prayer request. When the blessings don’t come and when everything seems hard.  But that’s when our true faith is able to shine. That’s when what we really believe comes out. That’s when we grow.

I don’t just love God because of what He can do for me. I love Him because of who I believe He is.

I don’t praise God because all is right in my world. I praise Him because of who He is.
He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He is the same whether I am blessed or whether I’m challenged. He is the same whether He answers me “yes” or “no.” My view of Him may change – but He does not change. I just can’t always see the reasoning or the full picture.

Ultimately, I trust God. I have faith in Him. I adore Him. I trust Him even when my heart is aching and I wonder why the timing isn’t “now” for what I’m seeking in life. I have faith in Him even when I don’t think things are fair – for I know He wants what is best for me. Oh yes, I adore Him. I adore Him even when life gets ugly.

I believe in my Lord and Savior. And that – for me – trumps everything else I go through.

So it may be easy to love Him when thing are going well, but it’s natural for me to still love Him when they aren’t. I just can’t live any other way.

  1. Beautifully written! I also find that sometimes the opposite is true for me: it is easier for me to forget about God when things are going well, and I remember to run to Him for help when something goes ugly.

  2. I was just listening to a behind the music on a radio station and the christian artist was talking about he had just lost his mom, his wife miscarried their twins, and they were just in a really tough time and he started to question God and then felt like – wait, no, I will praise you no matter what comes my way because I know you love me. Love your post!

  3. It is so so hard but He is so worthy of nothing else. Thank you for sharing. Blessed!

  4. What a beautiful message. I am dealing with a lot of stuff in my life right now and it is hard to be filled with praise. But I know God is able to help me through the rough times and he is worthy of praise no matter where I am in my life.
