TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Even during the storm, God is good. Use the storm to draw near to God and you will see how He will even use the storms of life for His good purposes.
GOD IS GOOD-LOOKING
This may come as a shock to you, but God is good. No, really. God is real and so is His goodness.
I think God has gotten the worst PR imaginable from His kids. You and I have not represented His goodness very well over the past 2,000 years. Part of that is because I don’t think we really believe God is all that good.
The goodness of God is a very foundational principle to being a Devil-stomping Christian. It’s been under a bunch of dirt for a long time, but it’s worth its weight in gold to do an archeological dig for it. Once you do, you will find this fundamental truth: wait for it…
GOD IS GOOD AND THE DEVIL IS BAD.
For some reason, you can teach a 3-year old this, but it’s difficult to understand when you grow up and life gets hard. I’ve come to believe it is impossible to understand after your third year in seminary! No matter how smart you think you are, this simple truth changes everything. It sets you free.
Your childlike faith in the goodness of God causes you to receive the Kingdom of Heaven, first in salvation, then in your victorious journey through life.
“Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Just because bad things happen or you “grow up” and no longer believe the Bible “stories” — I like to call them “accounts,” because that’s what they are, historical accounts — doesn’t mean God is no longer good. He is, and if you think back through your life, He’s proven it time and time again.
