WHAT GOD SAYS AND DOES IS GOOD, VERY GOOD!
God said… God saw… it was good, very good —Genesis 1:3-4, 6, 9-10, 11-12, 14 & 18, 20-21, 24-25, 26, 29, 31, 2:18, Matthew 1:20
Is want God says important to you? How important is what He says to you? Are you listening to what He says to you? Are you observing what He says to you? What is He saying to you? Will you be/do what He is saying to you?
What God says, He will do. What God does is not hidden from His sight (Hebrews 4:13). What God does is good. It is very good! So what is it that God is speaking to you about? What are His desires for you today, tomorrow, this month and this year? What has He been speaking to you about? Are you listening to Him? Will you obey Him?
All throughout Genesis chapter 1 & 2 God speaks things into existence and when He has seen what He has done He says it is good, very good. This is true of everything that God does. He can only do good, very good and in the opening chapters of man’s existence all is good, very good. Sin has yet to enter and all was good, very good.
God also spoke to Joseph in a dream to let him know that what was forming in Mary’s womb was from Him (Matthew 1:18-25). This was good, very good. In the beginning everything was good, very good all the time. Now it is still true that what God says and does is good, very good… but now this sin infested world also does bad, very bad. So now the goodness of God is amongst the badness of Satan and Satan’s wicked influence on man. Before sin entered there was peace and tranquility… always! Now there still is peace and tranquility for those who rest in Jesus, but is in the midst of spiritual warfare (Hebrews 4:3; Ephesians 6:10-20).
As we have entered the first day of this new year of 2022 may we be allowing the goodness of God flow through us to a wicked, dark world that desperately needs Him. Let us bring the goodness of God to people and share with them what He has said, what He has done, the way of good, very good. Yes, all this good, very good is summed up in His Son Jesus. Let us bring Him, show Him, speak of Him and encourage others to know Him. May that be our focus in this New Year.
Yes Dear Father may I have this focus by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bo9ZWX1lEKI&t=1022s
