conversations with god
God: "Don't question good."
god: "praise good."
truly: "Yes, Lord i will."
Truly: "well, yes Lord I will try."
Truly: "I will do my best."
Truly: "I need some help."
Did I really tell God I will try to enjoy and believe in good and not doubt it?
Is accepting good in my life an actual challenge at times?
Could I be calling out good in my life?
Now that sounds utterly absurd, senseless. It's not logical. However dear readers, I have questioned some good in my life in the past and not long ago.
"You have got to be kidding me?" I shout to myself.
truly: "Are you putting up a fight with accepting good?
Truly: "you want to dispute and debate good now?"
Yes, it is comical. In fact it is laughable, but true. At times the goodness and love that God pours on me seem just too good to be true. Although I have learned to recognize God's favor and sweetness directed at me, occasionally I look at my joy and happiness with a tiny bit of hesitancy. Maybe I am reluctant for fear it will be only momentary. I can't explain it, but I am sure Satan is behind it.
"It's too good to be true" creeps in. You know that Satan will do anything to halt goodness and praise. God's love, favor, and good are TRUE and real. Jesus is the ultimate representation of God's goodness on mankind.
So God says to me over and over again:
GOD: "DON'T QUESTION GOOD."
GOD: "PRAISE IT."
I can do this. I can praise good, the goodness of God, even if I am a bit reluctant to accept it fully. I can definitely praise it. And the more I praise it, the more I embrace it.
Oh loved readers (loved by God and by me), I so want you to praise good more and more. Just for the fact good deserves it. Good is worthy of praise. I am sure this act of applauding good can only serve us to see more of God.
Blessed and happy are the people who know the joyful sound [of the trumpet’s blast]!
They walk, O Lord, in the light and favor of Your countenance!
In Your name they rejoice all the day,
(the joyful sound of the trumpet's blast is now Jesus)
Let's rejoice all the day in GOOD, the goodness of God.
Truly, the mere messenger
