God’s Goodness for Me

So beautiful and good

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

In Jesus I have good works prepared by God for me to do… how wonderful is that knowledge.

Obviously the good is determined by God not me. Which is reassuring because I have a tendency to choose temporary earthly pleasures over eternal goodness and true joy.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

Yes, in Jesus my life will be good, pleasing and perfect, and He will never leave me to do otherwise.

Oh, the Deep Love of God

As Jonah found out, there is no situation so deep or dark that God’s love is not able to reach.

“In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me.
From the depths of the grave I called for help, and you listened to my cry.” Jonah 2:2
