Devotions

Is it good? Who decides that?

What is "good" for you?   Chocolate is good, friends are good, football is good, and a party is good!  Perhaps that is not your list of "good" things.  Maybe you were thinking that a nap is something good!   With our various tastes and personalities, we each would have a different list.   Would our list be different if we had to write down what is good and evil, what is right and wrong when it comes to morals and values?   This could lead into an argument!   Is it really our decision to decide what is good and evil?  It is not up to us to decide!   It doesn't matter what we like or don't like.  All that matters is what God says is good.  God had told us in the Bible what is good and what is evil.  The Bible points out what is right, and what is wrong.   God says it is "good" to forgive!   God says it is "good" to be generous.  We do not have to make our own version of "good values", it is already provided for us by the Creator God.  For God created good in the very beginning.
  Prayer:  Dear good and amazing God!  Guide me today and each day to follow your guidance in my moral choices and actions.  Help me to recognize what is good or evil, and what is "right to do" in your eyes.  Thank you for this help.   Amen.

Prayer

We give thanks unto You, O God, because we can approach Your throne, at any time, with freedom and confidence! Father, we thank you that we are Your workmanship and our identity is found in You. We are grateful that we were chosen before the foundation of the world, that you adopted us, that you love us, and that we belong to You. When we are tempted to worry about what others think or we are afraid of how others see us, God remind us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. We are no longer condemned; we are forgiven. We are delivered. We are healed. We are set free. We are overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb! We are Your sons and Your daughters. Hallelujah! We are victorious. In Jesus' name, Amen.   (By T.Morrison)
