2 Chronicles 20:12 ~ NKJV
“O our GOD, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.””
Some of y’all thought I was joking, I wasn’t. This is the second of a three-part series I am doing, I probably should have titled it, but I didn’t. Honestly though, this is one of my favorite verses in the entire Bible. The people of Judah had no idea what to do, no idea where to go, and no idea how they were going to get out of the mess they were in. But they knew one thing, “God is good and He does good.” And they had hope that God would deliver them even when it seemed there was no way out.
When you are backed up against the wall, and you can’t see a way out, just remember God is good and He does good. Because if you know that you are a child of the King and that He is good all the time, you will never have to wonder if God is going to save you. Once you grab that knowledge and know it in your heart, not just in your head, watch out world!!
God’s Plans are for your good. (See the period? Good.) There is no fine print, no terms and conditions. Is everything going to be easy? No. Is God’s version of good and your version of good always going to line up? No! But everything God allows to come to you, whether good or bad, is intended for His glory. It may not seem like it, it may seem like God is mad and He is trying to kill you. That’s not true! God is good and He does good! It may seem bad, but it’s not the end. You may never see the good in something that happened to you, this side of Heaven. When you get there, everything will make sense. But on this side of Heaven, you just have to hold on to the fact that God loves you, and you can trust Him. Even in the hard stuff. Because God is good and He does good. You guys might be getting tired of me saying that but I can’t stop saying it, I can’t stop thinking it. It’s just in my heart, I don’t know why. Even when it seems bad, even when it’s dark and it’s not supposed to be dark, God is good and He does good. Focus on Him, and everything else will work out according to God’s Plan. Count on it.
