Have you ever felt like events are not going the way they should for you? Or perhaps, you work hard for a certain outcome, and something bad happens that stops the good you expected to occur from coming to fruition? If so, it might be time to pray for a greater understanding of the certainty of God’s good.
God is absolute certain good. There is nothing iffy about God’s presence and power. It is not here today, gone tomorrow, or up one day and down the next. God is a fixed constant that never wanes or wavers. When you reason and work out from the foundation of God’s power and presence, the outcome of your work is certain. There is no risk involved.
To demonstrate more risk-free living, it’s important to challenge notions and fears of chance prevalent in popular thinking so that they don’t unwittingly become your experience.
For instance, if the media reports the flu coming to your town, and you even remotely entertain the suggestion that you might get it, that hint needs to be immediately wiped out of consciousness and replaced with an unwavering conviction that your health is spiritual and permanent, and that catching the flu is impossible.
Or if the media reports chaos in Washington D.C. decision-making, implying that lawmakers can’t agree on anything and there’s a chance that the government is going to be shut down, that suggestion needs to be instantly challenged and replaced with a firm conviction that God is the head of all government operations and keeps its activities running smoothly.
Or, if you are tempted to believe in Murphy’s law, that anything that can go wrong will go wrong, that insidious belief needs to be squashed into oblivion with an understanding that God causes only good things to happen, and all the time!
Or, if you’re tempted to believe that “You never know what might happen. It could be bad. It could be good,” that ignorant belief should be summarily dismissed and replaced with a clear understanding that God always knows what is going to happen, and it’s always going to be good.
If you would like good to be a more regular part of your routine, then be sure to accept good as a regular part of your routine. God is routine good! God is reliable good. God is certain good.
Knowing the certainty of God’s good throughout all of God’s creation helps keep the body healthy too.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously” Science and Health, p. 392. Admit only the certainty of health, harmony, abundance, peace and love. Eliminate risk from your life and from your state of health. There is nothing chancy or iffy about God’s good. It’s predictable and certain.
