The Generosity of God

We might think that because God could give us everything we desire, need, or ask for that He will. No, God gives us what we need at the time. Some may say that that is cruel, who would He withhold? I think that those who think that God is withholding things from them do not see the riches He is giving: The physical - food, clothing, shelter. The spiritual - love, acceptance, grace, and mercy. Focusing on what you don't have makes You neglect to give praise and thanksgiving for what You do have. You miss God's great generosity.
I am the Lord your God,
who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
Psalm 81:10
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
O Lord of hosts,
How blessed is the man who trusts in You!
Psalm 84:11-12
