Ten proofs of God's goodness 5
8. According to James 3:10-12 Blessing and cursing and good and evil cannot come from the same source.
Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh. James 3:10-12
1 John 1:5 reveals there is no darkness with God.
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.1 John 1:5
John 1:4 In Him is life! God cannot simultaneously have healing and sickness flowing from Him!
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:4
This is another astounding proof of How good God is! Two opposite and counter productive "streams" cannot flow from the same source. God doesn't have a little healing to give but, also a little disease to teach you.
God is not blessing a believer's business and simultaneously "working" to bankrupt another. He is not the source of opposition. He is the One interested in your prosperity not in demise or failure.
If the Church could finally understand how much He love us we wouldn't have so many confused believers. So many running to God trying to be "better" sons and asking Daddy to remove the hindrance on their business or marriage or finances or health.
You can hear some crying out, "God I will try and do better if you could just remove this opposition you have upon me". Many are trying to "do better" or do more to get God to bless and not "curse" them. It is so sad seeing God's Family accusing the Father as the source of evil or contrary circumstances.
Listen to the glad news! God is for you not against you! He isn't causing bankruptcy or sending financial ruin to you. He isn't obstructing you in anyway from receiving from Him. Whether it's healing, the Baptism in the Holy Ghost, financial blessings or family restoration He is not withholding anything!
God so loves you. He is the source of blessing and not cursing. He has in Him goodness not badness. You can trust Him totally! He has your best in His purpose and plan for your life!
God bless you. Thanks for stopping by and discovering God's true nature and character. I pray this post strengthens you. Leave feedback I appreciate any comments.
