Despite Or Because (Quick Read)

Believers, stop trying to praise God DESPITE your circumstance. If your circumstances are that bad, then God doesn’t deserve any praise or thanks. 

But perhaps, God did something through Jesus that you’re not accounting for. Maybe that’s why you think your circumstances are so bad. And maybe all you need to do is realize how redeemed from the earth you are and you would realize your circumstances, as a believer, are actually quite good. And then you could start praising God BECAUSE of your circumstances, instead of DESPITE your circumstances. That would make more sense.
