There is a group called Arkansas Weather Watchers on Facebook. One night this past week they had us all prepared, just like all the other news outlets, for worse weather than the night before.
I guess so many people were so well prepared when the weather did not materialize, people started fussing at the weather people. Some of them got ugly. His response was, shouldn’t you be thankful that it didn’t happen like it was predicted rather than being so angry?
Oh beloved God speaks to my heart, and I bet he will speak to yours too. Sometimes we are so prepared for a bad outcome that we don’t know what to do with a good outcome. We get used to bad news, bad health, and other things. Then when God shows up and gives us a miracle, we don’t know what to do with it.
God wants you to know this morning that he’s not a bad God he’s a miracle working God. He promises that out of the goodness of his heart. He pours out goodness onto your life as well. He says today is your day to stop looking for the worst and start expecting the best. You are born again into heavenly kingdom that’s completely different from the earthly kingdom. When you pray, it’s not just to make you feel good. It’s to heaven and God’s heart so that he will answer. It’s a glorious thing to be able to speak to the only living God as though he were your father. And he is!
God loves you and he is for you. Start believing that today and look for the Sonshine instead of the storm. And the blessed life of a believer every single day!
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

1 John 5:5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
