God Thinking LV - Life Is Like A Soufflé 4

"Life is a mess without God’s recipe for life.  Can I have an Amen.
“Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:” Psalm 127:1a
I want you to catch the truth, the vision of God’s plan for you.  God’s recipe for a fulfilled life demands that you see God and what He has done for you from the proper light.  

God thinking is about having the right ingredients and following the right recipe.  Most people have the right ingredients, but they keep mixing them together without God’s recipe, and the results are always - discontent - miserable - depressed - lonely - unhappy - critical - mean spirited - easily irritated - easily disgruntled - unfulfilled - creating their own religion. 

You have the right ingredients for a fulfilled life
If you will use God’s recipe for a fulfilled life you will have a fulfilled life.

I just want to briefly discuss three things that have to do with God’s recipe for a fulfilled life.  These are worth writing down (or remembeing if you have one of hose minds).
11     “Every thing that God made, was very good
Genesis 1:31a “And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good.”

If you are to ever enjoy life and have access to the very best that God would have for you, you will have to get this one, simple truth correct in your thinking.  Every thing that God made was very good.  It is this “was very good” that you must understand.  When God created the worlds and every thing in them, every thing in them was good.  

Over time, and under the influence of the fall of man, by sin against God, every thing became skewed, fallen, full of iniquity, full of rust and decay.  Death, sickness, pain, sin, hate, lying, cheating, drunkenness, addictions, destruction of every kind, terrorism and every sort of evil has all stemmed from and is a direct result of the fall of man.  

What God made, God made good, and Adam and Eve, you and I have taken what God made that was good and made it into something less. 

Until you believe that God made every thing good - in your theology, ( the way you believe about God), you might believe that God made some things that weren’t good and that the things that God made that weren’t good are the reason why some things in your life aren’t good or that God meant for you to wallow in the mire, like pigs in slop.  

satan loves it when you blame God for your trouble - When you attribute to God what satan has done in this world.  

satan loves it when you don’t know a thing about your heavenly Father.  And he will pull out every stop to allure you into thinking wrong thoughts about your gracious and glorious, holy and omnipotent, great and mighty, sovereign and Almighty, just and righteous Abba, Father, God.

Can you remember this profound and unchanging truth:
1     “Every thing that God made, was very good.”
