an old fashion devotion

not ashamed

Old Fashion Daily Devotion, something you can preach and get excited about.

When He created everything, was creating a home for man to live in because He had in His mind His supreme creation, which is man. And so He made it, not only for His pleasure, and not only for His praise, but He made it for His people. And you see God made all of this for us. In a very real sense of the word, He gave it to us, and He told us to have dominion and He told us to enjoy it.

 

Now, I want to tell you what the devil wants to do. The devil wants to get you thinking negatively about God. The devil wants you to get to thinking that God is not a good God. And I want to say with all of the unction, function, and emotion of my soul, and I pray God that He will etch this into your consciousness this morning, God is a good God. God is a good God. God made it for His glory and for your good; for His praise, but for His people.

 

I want to give you three verses I want you to jot down, and I want you to keep these in your mind and I want you to live by them because it will help you. You see, sin begins with thinking negatively about God, and sin causes us to think negatively about God. Psalm 37:4. The Bible says, “Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee… ” What? “… the desires of thine heart.” Isn’t that great? “… the desires of thine heart.”

 

Let me give you another verse. Psalm 84:11. “The Lord thy God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory. No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Did you hear that? “… no good thing…” If it’ll make you healthy, happy, holy, wholesome, God says, “Help yourself. I love you. I made it for you.” God loves you. Friend, God wants for you what you’d want for yourself if you had enough sense to want it. God is such a good God. God says, “Help yourself to happiness.” “The Lord thy God is a sun and a shield; the Lord will give grace and glory. No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”

 

 

….the third verses. 1 Timothy 6:17. It speaks of God who giveth us, “… richly all things to enjoy.” God wants you to enjoy these flowers. God wants you to enjoy the birds, the fish, the fowl. God made it for your good. Sometimes we think because we’re Christians we can’t enjoy these things. Don’t ever think that God’s physical, material universe is evil. When God made it, God said, “It is good.” And the same God that made the salt pork made the strawberries. Amen. He did.

 

 

And, and God is such a good God. He’s, He’s a wonderful God. He is a glorious God, and He is a God, not only who is a God who is present in our lives, and not only a God who is powerful, but a God who is purposeful. God had a purpose in all of this creation for His pleasure, for His praise, for His people. God flung out the stars and scooped out the seas and heaped up the mountains and God spoke it and it stood fast.
