Good Morning Devo for 10.8.2021: Have You Lost Your Sight of Good in the World?

Good morning! The Word of God reflects the will of God.  It creates and it exists based on His Word.  And, again, how much did God create?  “For you created all things” (Rev. 4:11).  So, if God made everything, then everything created must be good!  We must absorb this foundational proposition found in Scripture.  God made all things and he made them good.  “He saw that it was good.”  Approximately 4,000 years later, the Apostle Paul wrote a letter to young Pastor Timothy, reminding him of the goodness of creation—and helping him recognize how well-meaning but misguided people began to redefine what “good” was outside of God’s design:

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.  For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer (The Apostle Paul, 1 Timothy 4:1-5).

God created everything by His Word and created them good! Do you believe that, or do you look around and only see the problems? As broken as our world is, God still works good in and through us! Nothing stops His Word or His will! I pray that you have surrendered your will to His and see that God works all things together for good, to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
