The children of Israel had a real problem with longing for what was and being disappointed with what is.....in short, they were unhappy with God and His provision.
How sad that must have made God.......
8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Living in the present is an acknowledgement of how amazing God is -
"your awareness is completely centered on the here and now. You are not worrying about the future or thinking about the past."
(Merriam Webster Dictionary)
Today, simply trust God with your future and your past.....and praise Him for his goodness, and for his wonderful works!
Praise you Lord...Praise you Lord!
