April 17, 2009 - Shall We Only Accept Good And Not Adversity

"Fig trees may not grow figs, and there may be no grapes on the vines. There may be no olives growing and no food growing in the fields. There may be no sheep in the pens and no cattle in the barns. But I will still be glad in the Lord."
(Habakkuk 3:17-18 NCV)

SHALL WE ONLY ACCEPT GOOD AND NOT ADVERSITY

Things are going great and God is good and worthy to be praised...then from no fault of your own life turns south and trouble becomes your middle name. Has God all of the sudden fallen out of favour with you?

Maybe you've been in a valley for a long, long time, life doesn't change, in fact yo get used to mediocrity, even dysfunctional living.

You might be entertaining the thought that God is punishing you and that you are the total exception to His promise of abundant living.

When I first became a Christian I remember reading a witness track that stresses that we don't live our lives where we allow our feelings to drive us rather than the fact of the promises of God's Word. The Christian who lives by faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God Himself and His Word will live a life of stability and an even keel. If we go by our feelings we are easily swayed and pulled by everything but the truth and the devil delights in those who live by their feelings because we have just made his job a whole lot easier to turn us away from the true Lover of our souls.

Life will be hard, God never promised you a rose garden. The garden was made off limits when Adam and Eve disobeyed God. Through Christ we are redeemed, we are justified and made right with God, through Christ we make peace with God, but I can guarantee us that life will throw us curves while we are on this side of eternity. He promises to work all things out for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose..

Persevere my friend, GOD IS GOOD.

Rejoice in the Lord Always!
