TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
When we walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh we have the strength and power of God. There should be no fear! Galatians 5:22-26 tells us how to get the proper perspective to show God’s love to people around us. Be humble and continue to do good for others for the glory of God.
When we see goodness in the acts of Christians, evil vanishes. Poof! Good truly overcomes evil. It is diminished and downgraded the moment good shows up.
Even as believers, if we don’t see the goodness of God, we faint — we fall out. We live our lives with pastor issues, theological problems never get solved and we don’t see righteousness or love in the church.
If we don’t see the goodness of God, we miss out on His face, His heart and His glory. You see, our belief that God is good and that He will do good on our behalf is the supernatural seatbelt that keeps us from falling out or twisting off! Faith and trust are key, especially when we don’t see a lot of goodness firsthand.
If we fail to see goodness, we start to fall into unbelief. We have trouble believing God is good after all and that is what sin actually is!
“But he who doubts is condemned…for whatever is not from faith is sin.”
When we sin by failing to believe God is love and that He is good, we fall short of His glory.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
The problem is not that we don’t have enough Bibles, churches or preachers. What we need is more goodness. We need open displays of God’s selfless, giving heart in business, our families, schools, entertainment, politics and in every arena of life here and abroad.
Like David, I am a hope fanatic who believes God is good and that God does good.
“You are good, and do good…”
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO SHOW OFF THE GOODNESS OF GOD! LOVE ON SOMEONE OUTSIDE YOUR CIRCLE. SERVE SOMEBODY AND PROVE HOW AWESOME HE IS. People really need to see Him because good overcomes evil — every time!
