YOU ARE GOOD!

Greetings!

BlogFam,
There are a few scriptures that have become staples for the My Vision Fast and Genesis 1:1 is one of them.  In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth.  When we are asking ourselves how we SEE God, I never want us to dismiss how GRAND and MAGNIFICENT and AWE-INSPIRNG our God is.  God did that.  God created the heavens and the earth and whether you believe it was in a matter of days or over millions of years, the larger point is that GOD DID IT.  Period. 

This year, I was led to add the first version of the human creation story at the end of Genesis 1 (Genesis 1:26-31).  The verses remind and inform us that humanity, all of humanity was created in the image of God and all of humanity, God declared was good.  I am good.  You are good.  We are good.  And as we begin the My Vision Fast, I think that VISIONARIES need to be encouraged by God's declaration over their lives.  YOU ARE GOOD because God said You are Good. 

Now that does not mean we have not all tainted our goodness by the choices we have made and the consequences we have endured.  For we have all sinned and we come short of the glory of God.  However, it is important to know that at the moment God imagined you, formed you in your mother's womb, and you breathed your first breath, God believed, declared, and fully intended you to know that YOU are GOOD. 

Sometimes, when we get off track or we feel lost or we are doubting ourselves, just look at yourself in the mirror and say I AM GOOD.  Say it.  I AM GOOD.  I. AM. GOOD. And if you struggle with this declaration over your own life, dig deep and ask yourself WHY?  Why do I not believe this enough to declare it over my own life?  God already has.  And I believe God will continue to believe that we are all GOOD even when we do not reflect the very best of God's image.  In those moments, God's love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness can be overwhelming so much so that when we do receive it, God's goodness is confirmed and our goodness is restored. 

Friends, YOU ARE GOOD.  And God's mind has not changed, dare I say, God's mind will never change about that...
 
GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
