TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
If you see yourself as being incapable of doing good in any area of your life, you haven’t given Me everything. Until you do, I can’t show you how good I am. Trust me today.
REAP WHAT YOU SOW
We humans tend to make God in our image. Since we’re so bipolar – loving Him one minute, mad at Him the next – we presume God is bi-polar. That He is pleased with us one minute and angry the next. He’s not.
I can hear it now, “Pastor Troy, are you telling me God does not judge?” No! God is a world-class judge, and He is a righteous judge. But know this: judgment is always out there working.
Judgment is all about, “If this happens, then this is the price you have to pay for it.” You can also call that “consequences for actions.”
You need to understand that redemption is also working! The body of Christ is supposed to stand where redemption is. You’re supposed to point people to the blood on the doorpost – the Blood of the Lamb. You don’t point people to the death angel.
What will you harvest if you sow seeds of distrust in God, then water them with judgment? I’ll tell you what you will harvest – enemies. God did not call us to harvest hell. He wants fruit – people who know and love Him.
If you are truly about the Father’s business, you will be planting seeds of goodness – His love and His word. You’ll be selflessly serving to water those seeds. See, it’s all about the fruit and the harvest. What are you planting?
Let the heavens declare His righteousness, For God Himself is Judge. Selah – Psalms 50:6
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO KNOW GOD IS NOT MAD AT YOU. HE’S JUST NOT.
