Goodness of God

God never said life would be super easy all the time. But He did promise this: ‘When you pass through the waters, I will be with you When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned’
(Isaiah 43:2 – https://bit.ly/3eWz7sC)

He’s a good God, and He’s not distant and unapproachable. He’s right there with you when you’re overwhelmed by tough stuff. As Jenn Johnson sings, ‘You have led me through the fire, and in darkest night You are close like no other. I’ve known You as a Father, I’ve known You as a Friend, and I have lived in the goodness of God’ (https://bit.ly/3cfCqZ3)

Promises never fail

Isaiah reminds us, ‘O Lord, You are our Father’ (Isaiah 64:8 – https://bit.ly/2YQEVLl) God is your Father, and He’s a perfect Father. A perfect Father only has loving thoughts towards you. He only wants the very best for you (though sometimes – often! – what you think is best may be different from what He knows is best).

Let these lyrics from Bethel encourage you today as you decide to keep trusting in your perfect Father: ‘I know Your thoughts, Your plans for me, are good. And I know You hold my future and my hope. Your promises never fail’ (https://bit.ly/2ZHRU5L)

You Say

In her song You say, Lauren Daigle sings, ‘I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough. Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up’ (https://bit.ly/3gsKRUx)

Ask yourself two honest questions today:
(1) Whose voices are you listening to?
(2) Are those voices telling the truth?

Ask Jesus to help you figure out the answers to those questions, then ask Him to help you believe – really believe! – what He says about you. Things like – ‘He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.’
(Zephaniah 3:17 – https://bit.ly/2vdbrcF)

Background

If you’re confused about your place in this world, or if you’ve got big dreams but you know your ego can get the better of you, then Lecrae’s song, Background (https://bit.ly/3gvg3T1) is the best thing to listen to this week. He reminds us we’re just ‘a trail of stardust, leading to the Superstar’ – Jesus. We’re not the main characters of our stories – He is.

Maybe start your day by praying with Lecrae, ‘So won’t You take the lead?’ Because, as the psalmist says, ‘Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to Your name goes all the glory’.
(Psalm 115:1 – https://bit.ly/3ekPiyK)
