Around a year ago I was challenged by a statement … “What do you really believe about the goodness of God”?
Immediately God asked me … “What do you really believe about my goodness”?
This was one of those moments when you realise that God already knows the answer. In reality He was not asking a question rather He was inviting me to allow Him to expand my heart to go on a journey of discovering what living in His unlimited goodness looks like.
A year before I had a couple of encounters with God through dreams, I got my journal out and looked them up.
In the first dream I heard over and over again …
“I can be trusted; the slightest unbelief diminishes who I can be for you and what it is possible to do through you”
The dream repeated a number of times, each time I was walking through a different situation. At a particular moment in each scenario I started to sense fear and unbelief. As soon as I realised this I would say “No, I will totally rely on God” and immediately I was filled with joy and peace.
In the second dream I kept on hearing …
“Everything is Yes in Jesus”
In various seemingly impossible scenes and scenarios the voice said … “There is a promise, everything is Yes”.
With the audible ‘yes’ came the word ‘yes’ superimposed in red over each challenge or situation. With each changing scene the “yes” got louder and bigger!
As I read through my journal Romans 15:13 and 2 Corinthians 1:20 came to mind.
May the God of hope, fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit
2 Corinthians 1:20
For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory
When we journey into His limitless goodness, fully trusting Him we are filled with joy and peace, overflowing with Holy Spirit empowered supernatural hope into the world around us.
This hope is the overflowing, joyful confident expectation of good, knowing that there is a YES for everything. That anything that wars against the love of God, His goodness, has an answer, a solution, a promise.
The promise is bigger, the Yes is bigger and we literally carry about within us the answer to any problem.
The signature of Heaven is love; our lives are the uniquely crafted pens through which the unlimited resources of the Kingdom of Heaven flow as God signature is left in the indelible ink of love over people’s lives.
Faith is being confident that what we hope for will actually happen, it gives us assurance about things we cannot see (Hebrews 11:1) … we cannot afford to see outside of hope.
Hope sees the yes, the provision, the answer and we have the privilege of living in the thank you of the yes. We have a responsibility to pray until we see the yes manifest – on earth as it is in heaven.
Supernatural hope lives from a place with eyes that can see answers, fully aware of the limitless resources available. As the ink of His goodness flows through us every solution that comes from Heaven, formed in the creative wisdom of God, carries this signature
When we overflow with the goodness of God, we get to look like our Daddy, the God of hope, as He flows through us impacting our lives, the people around us, towns, cities, regions, nations
In His name nations will put their hope. (Matthew 21:21)
A year on from accepting the invitation to travel further into the unlimited realms of His goodness I have only one thing to say …… MORE ….. come and join the adventure of all adventures.
