WORD FOR THE WARRIOR JUNE 13, 2020 LET’S SING TO THE LORD TODAY: https://youtu.be/gt-OouIx8Lk GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME BY DON MOEN
God Is Good
No matter what comes, God is good.
He doesn’t stop being good when my life falls apart, even when I happen to be at fault for some of my troubles.
He doesn’t stop being good when I forget he is good or if I never understand in the first place that he is good.
God is good, period.
Each one of us needs to ask the Holy Spirit to graft that truth into our souls because otherwise we will continue to wobble in our faith.
We do not yet know God anywhere near as well as he knows us, but he would like us to come closer to knowing him well. To know him is to love him and to believe that he cares.
To help myself remember this truth, I long ago adopted as one of my life verses this passage.
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.” Ephesians 1:18–19 nasb
I pray it for myself on a daily basis because I know that unless God enlightens the eyes of my heart, I will never arrive at the hope of his calling, nor will I have any comprehension of the riches of his goodness toward me and toward anyone who believes in him.
Whenever you go through difficult times, pray the Bible.
It works. It opens the eyes of your heart.
Don’t ask me how it works, but somehow two plus two equals five.
With God, all things are possible (Matthew 19:26; Mark 10:27), and he easily factors in our human weaknesses.
He is both sovereign and providential—and he providentially chose to give us human beings a free will, risking our likely revolt.
He knows what we do to each other. He knows what the devil does to us.
He’s still God, and he loves us.
He knows how everything will come out in the end.
He takes the hands of those who ask him to guide them, and the shepherd of our soul will restore to them the years that seemed to have been lost forever.
