Hello, my friends. I am Pastor Troy Brewer from Open Door Church in Burleson, Texas. I would like to welcome you to God Today. Friends, this may come as a shock to you, but God is good. No, really. God is really good and so is His goodness.
I think God has gotten the worst PR imaginable form His own kids. Yo and I have not represented His goodness very well over the past 2,000 years. Part of that is really – I don’t think we really believe God is really all that good sometimes. The goodness of God is a very real foundational principle to be in a devil stomping Christian. It has been under a bunch of dirt for a long, long time. It is worth its weight in gold to do an archaeological dig for it. Once you do, you will find this fundamental truth: wait for it, here it comes. God is good and the devil is bad.
For some reason, you can teach a three year old this, but it is difficult to understand once you grow up and life gets hard. Once the bills and the problems pile up, it becomes very, very hard to believe in a good God. However, no matter how smart you think you are, this simple truth changes everything. It will absolutely set you free. Your childlike faith and the goodness of God causes you to receive the Kingdom of Heaven first in salvation. Then within your own victorious journey throughout your life.
The book of Mark put is this way: he says, “Truly, I tell you. Anybody who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child, will never truly enter into it.” That’s Mark 10. Just because bad things happen, or just because you grow up and you no longer believe all those Bible stories – I like to call them Bible accounts. That is what they are, they are actually historical accounts. That doesn’t mean God is no longer good, friend. He is. If you think back into your life, He has proven it time and time again.
Are you doubting the goodness of God? Today is a great day to invite Him to remind you of His goodness within your life and for you to remind Him how much you appreciate that. Ask Him to continue proving His goodness because He will. He is crazy cool that way. You know what? He wants to show you how good He is. If you are somebody who needs to know that, He wants you to know that. Let’s all pray together. Father God, sir. I come to you, Lord, and I pray, God, a great worldwide revival of your goodness in us, on us, and through us. Father God, sir, we repent and we refuse to not believe anything else other than you are good. I love you, sir. In Jesus’ name. Amen. My friends, that is all the time I have for today. I am Troy Brewer. I call you the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, and highly favored of the Lord.
