2020 – TUESDAY 25 AUGUST
GOOD – BETTER – BEST
And do not be conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
EVERYTHING FROM GOD BEGINS AS GOOD
God is good and only does good.
God saw everything He created and said it was good. James 1.17
ALL GOOD THINGS CAN BE PERFECTED IN YOU
However it is our responsibility to take everything good in our world and perfect it according to God’s will for our lives.
Not everything good – is perfect for you.
QUESTIONS FOR PERFECTION
A. AM I CONFORMING TO THE WAY OF THE WORLD
If you love the world – then read no further. You have chosen a hard path in life.
You are selfish and sinful.
B. AM I RENEWING MY MIND BY GOD’S WORD
Do I diligently search God’s word for truth to apply to my desires and actions?
Will I humbly wait for God’s promise of good to come to me.
C. AM I PROVING AND TESTING WHAT IS GOOD FOR ME
Do I apply the search light of truth to my behaviour.
If it is not godly – it is not good for you.
D. AM I PROVING AND APPLYING WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE TO GOD
Have I stopped to ask forgiveness for the things that are displeasing to the Lord.
Have I recommitted to being acceptable in His sight.
E. DOES THIS HELP ME LIVE IN THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD
Have I found the perfect will of God for my life.
In His perfect will is a state of love, joy and peace beyond comprehension.
