I know that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ. But do we,as Christians, give God too much credit for things that we feel are blessings from God, when in actuality all we did was make a lifestyle change or wise decision to improve our lives or livelihoods?
I think this famous phrase applies:
There but for the grace of God, go I


So no.

No give God the Glory for everything because even logic is not of God. See when we resist the flesh like resist to lose weight Jesus Spirit can and remove the spirit of this world that temps people to eat more and put up a hedge against this spirit..... Glory to God .... and when we resist and oppose this illness of that diabetes which is not yours any more than Jesus Spirit can and will remove the infirmity spirit of this world and put a hedge against it......GLORY TO GOD...... see logic of the natural can not see behind the veil what the Lord Spirit is doing ......Give God the Glory .....

Yes, another good verse. Thank you. I hope people who likes this thread keep posting verses to help us understand why God should be glorified for eveyr thing that we have, do, and think about doing that glorifies Him. God bless!
