Soulful Sunday- Lies Women Believe About God - Part 1


Soulful Sunday
Lies Woman Believe About God Part 1
from the book "Lies Women Believe" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss


"God is not really good. If He were He would......."

This is not a lie that is always present in our minds, but some point we have thought this or even thought that God was not "good to me". This lie is the "core of much of our wrong thinking about God."
Satan used the ""seed of doubt and planted it in Eve's mind. (Genesis 3:1) The serpent implied "If God is so good, why would he keep what you desire from you? He would have given you everything you wanted."

In the world we live in, so many things happen to us, loss of loved ones, disappointments, pain, to just name a few. It is an opportunity for Satan to tempt us into exploring "If God was so good, how could he have let ______ happen to me?" "If God was good, why would he keep _________, my greatest desire, from me?" Or let's look at history. How many times have you heard "If God was so good, why did He allow the Holocaust?" or "Columbine?" or "9-11?"

"Once we doubt the goodness of God, we feel justified in rejecting His will and making our own decisions about right and wrong."

What is the TRUTH? The truth is GOD IS GOOD. Whether WE feel His choices are right and good...HE IS GOOD! Whether WE feel it is true in our own lives, HE IS GOOD!

Psalm 119:68 "YOU are good and do good, teach me Your statutes."

There have been so many times in my life that I have struggled with feeling the "goodness of God". Especially when my mom was unexpectedly taken from my life , in the way she had always been in my life, and placed 2 1/2 hours away in a Vent Unit. How was this good for me? "Lord, don't you know how much I love her, and need her? Don't you know how much my heart aches? You have gotten her through sicknesses before, why couldn't you one more time? You know I am not ready for this yet."
Even though my heart ached, He was there pouring grace on me, mercy on me and showing me how much He loved me. If there was ever a point in my life where where I had a true "Footsteps in the sand" experience, it was this time.
Our minds can not even begin to imagine the goodness God has for us as we can NEVER see the next step coming. Oh, but our Father knows.
unto your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?"


"A great many things in God's divine providences do not look to the eye like goodness. But faith sits down before mysteries such as these, and says, " The Lord is good, therefore all that He does must be good no matter how it looks. I can wait for His explanations." "
taken from "God is Enough" by Hannah Whitall
Smith

Here are a few things to think about until next time:

Romans 8:28 says " and we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Now read verses 29-39 as well. What perspective about God and His good purposes does this passage provide to help us face painful or difficult life situations?


Whatever difficulties you are currently facing, choose to "give thanks to the Lord, for he is good," and to claim the promise of Romans 8:28-29. "Lord even though I am facing difficulty regarding _______________________________ , I know You are GOOD, and You have promised to work that situation our for good. I know that Your commitment is to make me l like Jesus. Thank You that You will use this circumstance (or person) as a means to fulfill Your good purpose for my life." Amen.

Next week's Lie: God Doesn't Really Love Me.

I swear...something keeps popping up about this. I wanted to go to the Peru missions trip, but I got hurt, and God has told my parents no. But today, something happened. I can;t really explain it here, so if you want to find out what it was, go to my blog, Today Shelby Says.

I know that I have thought this a "few" times in my life. But God has showed me over the years that His good is not my good...and that is fine with me! LOL
