My favorite Bible teacher, Steve Brown, really understands the problem of "Prosperity Theology," the belief that God wants us to be wealthy, healthy and happy all the time. He says, "I just can’t see how things could be so good for the followers of a religion [speaking of Christianity] whose founder ended up on a cross and whose chief spokesman [the Apostle Paul] had a physical problem that God wouldn’t remove."

You have physical problems? That’s not unusual for those who worship God. You bear the sins of others? That’s also not unusual for those who worship God. Preparing for true worship of God is not about rejoicing in our life circumstances. We are to rejoice in the character of God, the work of God and our relationship with God.
