Good morning friends. I will start by saying, God is good all the time. So this morning, I would like to talk about the goodness of Yahweh and how He showed up for me. As you all know, my ministry is a ministry of faith. I live, breathe, walk, and talk about faith every day of my life. Seven days ago, I started experiencing chest pains. So I immediately began to pray and declare healing over my body. After four days of confessing the word of God over my life and situation, nothing happened. It seemed that I was growing worse. On day five, I went to the emergency room. I was seen by the ER doctor and admitted to the hospital for further analysis.
After being stuck, probed, and thoroughly examined, doctors determined that I had a heart attack. Although mild, it was my fourth, that’s right, fourth heart attack. So when I say, “God is good all the time,” I am speaking from personal experience. So today, I want to encourage you to trust God. I am a witness that if you go to Him first, He will honor your faith. When we say we are trusting God, sometimes we are trusting in something or someone else. We go to the Creator when everything else has failed. I believe when we put Him first, everything will turn out okay.
Deuteronomy 13:4 says, “The first fruits of your grain and your new wine and your oil, and the first of the fleece of your sheep, you shall give Him.” This verse of scripture speaks of the first fruit of your physical possessions. Likewise, we should also give God the first fruit of our spiritual possessions. I am speaking of our praise, worship, and confidence in God.
For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it;Isaiah 48:11
For how should My name be profaned?
And I will not give My glory to another.
Friends, I encourage you to keep fighting the good fight of faith. I believe when we not only trust God but put Him first, He will show up. Faith is about trusting God. If we look to Jesus, trust God and never give up, He will keep His promises. Because I put all my confidence in God today, I can honestly say that God is good all the time.
