There are three words that I want to give to you as we close out 2021 and move into 2022 – “Expect good things”. These words are not just a feel-good philosophy. There is no “name it and claim it” health and wealth promise to them. Instead, these words are all about perspective. When your eyes are on God and you are trusting Him and serving Him, then good things will happen. Now, in all honesty, they may not always feel like good things. But faith isn’t built on feelings; it is built on the character of God.
So, because God is our Father and we are His children, we can always expect good things from Him. During this year, if there is ever a point you begin to doubt that truth, just remember to tweak the definition from what you think is “good” to what God promises is “good”. It is that perfect faith in Him that will open the door to the peace that passes all understanding, and which will take us through whatever we may face in the year ahead.
In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Expect good things from God…
