Hi, this is Bill Vanderbush from GOD TV and welcome to God Today. I’ve got a word for you today: Pronoia. Kind of the opposite of paranoia. Pronoia is the delusional belief that others are plotting for your well-being. And when it comes to God I think a lot of people have paranoia. In other words, they think that God is standing around the corner with a big bat waiting to just jump on you the first time you get something wrong.
Jeremiah 29:11, it’s a popular verse you might have heard it: “I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God in Christ revealed the love of the Father, the cross of Jesus Christ is the eternal yes God over humanity saying “I love you, I’m for you and not against you.”
You know, I’ve just given you permission today, not to be paranoid about God, but to be pronoid about God. That is to recognize that it is not a delusional belief that God is plotting for your well-being.
