“The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…”~ 2 Chronicles 16:9 (NKJV)
God is good. Period. This is a truth that will change your life IF you truly, fully, forever embrace it.
He cares about your life, about your future. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
He wants you healthy and whole. “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” 3 John 2 (NIV)
He wants you to excel in the workplace. God’s girls should be the most diligent, hardworking employees. (I don’t mean we should be unbalanced. We should strive for excellence, however.) “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24 “Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.” Romans 12:11-12
He wants you to have great relationships. “Then the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.'” Genesis 2:18 “Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33
He wants to spend eternity with you. Cmon! He allowed his son to take the punishment for our sins. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
God is good. He is so much better than we can comprehend. Picture the best father. Imagine how kind, generous, wise, fun, and loving he would be. Imagine how he would teach, encourage, and mold you. Imagine how he would watch over you. Imagine how you would be a different person with a father like the one I’ve described. Well, our Father is so much better than that. Meditate on that for a moment. God is good. He is for you. He loves you, and nothing-not one thing-will ever change His love for you. Let that wash over you today. Let that change you.
As always, I wish you MUCH joy!
