Remember the old question: Is the glass half full or half empty? Like so many things in this world, that question is based on the wrong premise; namely, that we know what we know and are right in our assumptions. To me, this picture is a landmark. I will never quite look at this topic the same way again. The glass is always full (air + water)!! But what about God's promises towards us? Are they sometimes yes and other times no? Here is what Paul has to say about it....
2 Corinthians, Chapter 1
20 For however many are the promises of God, in him is the “Yes.” Therefore also through him is the “Amen,” to the glory of God through us.
God's motives are not negative; if they were he would have destroyed this sinful world long ago. However, he is patient and wants everyone who will be saved, to be saved. Therefore, the world has hope and a future. The next question is: will you continue to view the world in a negative way or God's way. Fill up you life with God; you will never be empty again!!!!
