The Good IS Here & Now

“All things work together for good to them that love the Lord, to them that are the called, according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

The “good” indicated in this verse does not refer to a more favorable turn of events or I Have Provision You Know Not Ofto some new set of material conditions specifically tailored to the expectations of the carnal mind; nor is it exclusively a reference to Paul’s understanding of the second coming of Christ and the resurrection.  It also refers to a present realization of that which is both eternal and at hand—that which is intuited, here and now, by those who have the mind of Christ and the Spirit of God.  By faith— i.e. by trusting and relying on the “I Am” presence which IS the living Christ —we dwell in the kingdom, here and now.  This is a living Reality which, as indicated above, is at hand; within us; among us (Matthew 3:2; Luke 17:20-21). 

“I know that good . . . is always coming; though few have at all times the simplicity and the courage to believe it.  What we call evil, is the only and best shape, which, for the person and his condition at the time, could be assumed by the best good.”  ~ Phantastes, by George MacDonald

It bears repeating:  Please don’t imagine that the good is coming (merely) in the future.  Rather, the good is here and now—like every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift it is from above, coming down— like bread from heaven —from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change (cf. James 1:17-18; John 6:28-36).  This is not a matter of pretense or make believe—it is for real.  Before Abraham was, I Am.  Whosoever will may come and drink of the water of life freely! 

I Am

–> Living by Faith
