"The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position." NIV
"Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted." KJV
It is easier to be thankful and praise God when things are going our way and life is good. For one who is struggling and doing without necessary things, it is a show of great and strong faith to glorify God and live in complete devotion to Him. Regardless of our circumstances, knowing our spiritual poverty and approaching the Lord with humble hearts is what God looks on with great pleasure and favor.
Heavenly Father, we ask that you help us to recognize how rich we are because we have You as our Lord and Saviour. It does not matter now much worldly possessions we have, but that we have you. Help us stay focused on how rich we are in You, in Jesus' name, Amen.
