Is God only good when good things happen?
How do we know the will of God?
If we are still under the law why is Gods will a big mystery?
Please read Romans 12:2
Vs. 2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
I hear so many people today say, “God is good” when someone gets well or gets a job so I have to ask, Is God only good for you when things are going right?
If He is perhaps you might want to rethink the thing you call faith or the being you call “god.”
The darkest moments in life and indeed in history are here for a reason also and while the world throws up their hands in despair- someone who is saved by Grace through Faith is throwing a party!!
The world is still under the law and that law was created to bring guilt and condemnation- BUT not so with Jesus!
By constantly renewing our mind with the idea that this moment and this event and these people were brought into my life by God and for His purpose in my life- We can Love unconditionally just like He did! Through this knowledge we can learn and see the lesson that He has for us right here and right now!
When people see you responding to a situation that would kill others with the faith that the situation is a gift from God- WOW what a powerful testimony!
Here is the kicker this will never happen if you are under the law- Grace alone creates a mind state like this. Think about it- Why would you need to know what Gods will is if the law had all the answers.
The pattern of this world is simple to see- God is only God when things are going well and when things go south as they often will He is punishing me! God only Loves me when I do good and when I do bad He is right there to spank me!
Here is a meditation for you. Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed and begin to take several deep breaths, with every exhalation relax a little bit more and give Him your stress- He like that stuff! Focus on your breathing in and out and as you do:
Breathe in and say:
“Lord renew my mind”
Breathe out and say:
“To see it’s All good”
Practice this until you can see- it’s all good cause it’s all from Him!
