Some ppl dont praise God until they’re on a smooth road.
You take a path to work and the main road has all types of potholes and the road is very rigged and raggedy. Everyday you go through it and there is no way around it. You know its a possibility that one day it could be fixed and you imagine how relieving that could be. Now you have an option, you can have restraint, and learn how to maneuver and avoid the potholes or you can complain, be miserable and make your day already worst than it is (everyday). See, while you are going through this rigged and raggedy road, God is molding you, making you humble and teaching you how to deal with unwanted situations. The mature and understanding Christian understands this road is tough, but they know how to avoid the potholes (bs that comes your way). Other people get badly damaged on the road (flat tires,accidents etc from the rough road conditions).They also know its a part of life and being blessed just to go along this road teaches them toughness, wisdom and stronger faith. Before God gets you out this condition you’re in, construction is conducted. You have to take this detour, which may seem inconvenient but in this process you learn even more patience. The construction thats taking place covers up everything you have been through, while you wait you may grow impatient because of your familiarity with the way you went to work (being taken away from your element). Once the road is completed, the ride is no longer bumpy, your appreciation is magnified even higher now because of how God blessed you in the roughest conditions, as others around you may have not been so fortunate. Persistence and prayer keeps your eyes on the road, forgetting who God is in good or bad phases of life blinds your vision of the greatness or blessings to come to your life.
