I declare in Jesus’ name I am a thermostat, not a thermometer. I set the atmosphere with your praise and worship. I proclaim you, Lord God, will increase your goodness and mercy to the same measure that I pour it out on others.
THERMOSTAT VS. THERMOMETER
I have noticed that goodness likes to show up in a mess. The deal is, once goodness is engaged in the chaos that is us, the mess is no longer the issue. That’s because goodness is like a thermostat. It can’t help but change the atmosphere.
You see, unlike a thermometer which only measures the temperature, God’s goodness is a thermostat. It not only measures the “temperature” of the atmosphere, it changes and resets the tone of a situation, and the tone of your life – permanently.
That’s why at the beginning of the creation story and at the end of every day, God said, “It is good.” Goodness is always the catalyst for transition. That’s were transformation begins – God’s goodness pouring out on you. It’s what sends you on your journey with Him.
Are you stuck in a rut along your path with Jesus? If it’s been a long time since you’ve seen transformation in your life, turn up the heat by pouring out the goodness of God onto others. The Lord will reset your thermostat to a new level of goodness in your life each time you turn up the amount of goodness you demonstrate.
Father God likes it when His kids are thermostats.
And you answered me and said, ‘The thing which you have told us to do is good.’ – Deuteronomy 1:14
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO TURN UP THE HEAT ON THE AMOUNT OF GOODNESS YOU SHOWER ON OTHERS. GOOD BRINGS TRANSFORMATION TO A SITUATION BECAUSE GOOD OVERCOMES EVIL!
