Godly Man’s Life Is Exciting
Proverbs 14:14 says “The backslider gets bored with himself: the godly man’s life is exciting. Stories of people who turned away from God have found not only excitement but good direction and a better life by following a God that is real and not boring. A woman who became a backslider and turned to drugs and alcohol found that God brought healing from this condition. This story is just one of many reported at storiesaboutgod.org that shows God to be good.
Enemies At Peace
Proverbs 16:7 says “When a man is trying to please God, God makes even his worst enemies to be at peace with him.” Next time you have problems with someone try to please God with prayer and showing love to the person making your life miserable. It is much more difficult for an “enemy” to continue fighting you while you pray for them and smile at them.
A true life story about God making enemies at peace was reported at thoughts-about-god.com. A man abducted by terrorists was released after he begins praying and the enemies discovered they had captured the wrong person.
Search For Good
Proverbs 11:27 says “If you search for good you will find God’s favor: if you search for evil you will find his curse. The pastor of the largest church in America did an interview about God’s favor reported at beliefnet.com. Joel Osteen talks about having a positive attitude about God in this interview at his Lakewood Church in Texas.
Notice that each of the Bible verses and illustrations given here show that searching for God and searching for good brings about a better life. Turning to God can be found in Bible verses and prayer. Learning that God is good comes about pretty easily with positive thinking after the reading and praying.
