DAY 1: WE SERVE A GOOD GOD
…it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Next to accepting Jesus as the Messiah, Lord and Savior of my life, the greatest revelation I’ve ever received was when God spoke to me as Tiz and I were pastoring in Australia in the late 70’s. He said to me, “Larry, I want you to tell the world that I am a good God!” This absolutely changed my life!
This revelation is the foundation for our 50-day devotional and is actually a journey based on something very special out of Leviticus 23. God told the Israelites to count 50 days on their journey out of Egypt to Mt. Sinai. As they moved forward they would only be successful by changing from a slave mentality to living with the mindset that they were children of the King. The Lord’s plan was not only to take Israel out of Egypt… but also to take Egypt out of Israel. This is also true for you today.
As we go through this journey, Tiz and I want you to be inspired to think about God as a gracious Father; One who loves to bless His children. We want you to understand that our Father will never leave you or forsake you. He is a God of love and wants to bless you with His amazing grace, mercy, peace and joy!
Realizing God is a GOOD God will start you on the path to “becoming a better you.” It changed my life and I’m sure it will change your life, too!
Your best is here now!
Pastors Larry and Tiz
