Today we read:
1 Samuel 11-12
– Food for thought day 186 –
• 1 Corinthians 13:7
• 2 Peter 3:9
God’s Best may differ depending on the circumstances on the ground or the individual. However, generally speaking, God’s Best for humanity is salvation; that all will come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
After you are born again, it’s up to you to choose to be conformed to the image of the person of Christ. This is where many people become judgmental, failing to understand that, to look like Christ is a process that has to do with the individual willingness to yield to the Holy Spirit. To some, they may choose to accept Christ as only their Saviour, but not as their Lord and to others Christ is both. Now in both cases, God’s Best is still working although the results May differ per individual due to their lifestyle in Christ.
Having this in mind, you have to learn to love people for who they are and still believe, that even in their worst state, God’s Best is still working for them. Many may even live in Christ and die and go to heaven without seeing Jesus as their Lord.
Also, for the people without Christ, God’s Best is still working for them: they hear the Gospel even when they choose not to give their life to Jesus.
That is why the Word of God says: “Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].”
1 Corinthians 13:7 AMPC
We should learn not to be judgemental, but choose to love and pray for God’s Best in people’s lives.
“The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people’s conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.”
2 Peter 3:9 AMPC
Remember: Love believes the best out of every person.
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
