Good is Good, Great is Great

Updated: Nov 5

There are

times

in our

Christian

pilgrimage

when God

allows

the removal

of what’s

good,

to make room

for that

which will

prove

great.


The transition,

sometimes

transacted

in a season

of suffering,

often

isn't

easy.


It does not

look good

or

feel good

at the time.


In truth,

very

painful

the shift

can be,

though absolutely

necessary,

as only our

all-wise,

all-loving

Father

fully understands.


Good is

secure,

but great

necessitates the

Refiner's sharpening.


Good is

familiar,

but great

germinates

a deeper faith.


Good is

happy,

but great

effectuates

hallelujahs.


Yes, good

is good.


But great

showcases

God’s glory

in a way

that good

cannot.


And,

after all,

the glory

of our

great Creator

is what this

good life

is all about.


So. . .

fellow sojourner,

if the Spirit

is nudging you

to release

what's secure

and good

to make

room for

what's unsure

and great,


or. . .

if God

is allowing

the transition

from the

good

that's safe,

to the

great

that's sanctified,


choose to trust

His perfect

love

and perfect

sovereignty.
