Day 13: It is All Good


Oh WE KNOW for sure

that GOD WILL

because GOD'S WILL is always working for our GOOD

even if HE seems like HE is sleeping on the job.

And all HE asks is for us to LOVE HIM.

Sounds quite simple,

but how do you LOVE someone

who you have to BELIEVE in

that you haven't seen?

Now that is FAITH.

A FAITH that takes you beyond yourself

because you just have to get out of your own way

and just do it.

"Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]" (Hebrews 11:1).

For FAITH breeds TRUST,

a TRUST in someone or something

for where you are placing your FAITH.

Hmm.

How would you feel if you had a friend

who never changes.

Who is always reliable.

Who always tells you that you are loved

and then

PROMISES

that all things will work out for GOOD,

even if the "thing" that is happening or hasn't happened yet

does not appear to be so GOOD.

It takes a step of FAITH.

As FAITH TRUSTS beyond what is seen

to the one who can be

TRUSTED with your whole heart

because

TRUSTING does not lean on your understanding~

on what you can see or feel.

As TRUST takes you beyond yourself

to a place of surrender

to the one

who can be TRUSTED

just because HE said HE can be TRUSTED.

And then it really happens

as GOOD begins to happen,

the GOOD that HE PROMISED would happen,

as it comes wrapped up as a beautiful gift

that you want to last forever because it is

THE PEACE that transcends all understanding

because

GOD ALWAYS DELIVERS ON HIS PROMISE~

“YOU will keep in perfect and constant peace

the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on YOU—

in both [inclination and character],

Because he trusts and takes refuge in YOU [with hope and confident expectation]" (Isaiah 26:3).

And oh nothing is better than experiencing

HIS PEACE in all things

no matter what your all things are.

Yesterday we gathered together

and were wrapped in GOD'S PROMISE

of HIS GOOD WILL

and that my friend was a supernatural experience,

for where GOD worked for GOOD

the time we had together

because

when you accept the invitation to be with

GOD,

GOOD fills the room

as it penetrates your heart

so that you will never be the same.

And all it takes

is our KNOWING~

"And we know [with great confidence] that GOD [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love GOD, to those who are called according to HIS plan and purpose" (Romans 8:28)

KNOWING that when GOD says HE WILL,

HE WILL,

because HE IS

"THE PROMISE KEEPER" (listen to the song below)
