We are not the Forgotten Child of God [FB Post 5.2017]

We are not the forgotten child of God-

If you are a follower of Christ, God is not going to allow something to happen to you unless it’s for your good. The thing about His sovereignty is He has the ability to work it for your good and for the good of others… one Christ-follower isn’t suffering for the sake of someone else. The only suffering that needed to happen like that was what Jesus did. He is going to work this for the good of everyone involved. God is miraculous and mysterious like that. It’s a beautiful surrender when we just accept that we may not understand how it’s possible but watch Him unfold it in His perfect timing.

Scour the Scriptures for yourself:
Romans 8:28
1 Corinthians 15:3
Ecclesiastes 3:11
Isaiah 55:8

God’s Goodness Doesn’t Always Have “all the feels” [FB POST 5.2017]

God’s Goodness Doesn’t Always Have “all the feels” [FB POST 5.2017]

If we are the kind who base God’s goodness off circumstances that feel good, we are most often the kind to doubt his goodness in the face of that which doesn’t.

Healthy kids, restored friendships, a clean scan are all God’s goodness but so are seasons of sifting, pruning, mourning.

God’s goodness is the lasting fruit that is produced in our life- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control- not always the things that give us “all the feels”.

Seek & know for yourself:
John 15
Galatians 5: 22-26
Matthew 5: 4
Luke 22: 31-34
