Living the Good Life

10/19/2010

This means on a practical level that we must reorient our thoughts, our words, and our actions.  We must not doubt our Lord and His good plan for our lives.  We should not speak against the Lord and complain to other people about our circumstances.  Romans 8:31-39 teaches us that every single thing that occurs in our lives is placed before us to sanctify us and to glorify God.  How then, can we doubt the Lord?  We must accept whatever comes from His hand and remember that He has our happiness in mind, not our misery.  This reorientation of thinking and acting will help us to switch from a glum, self-defeated way of life into a courageous, defiantly joyful existence that smacks of another world.
