One of the lies Satan succeeded in telling Eve was that God was withholding something “good” from her. He deceived her into thinking that God was preventing her from the best, and she clearly fell for it. It’s interesting that the enemy is still up to the same old tricks and a lot of believers are falling for it. He lies to you and makes you believe that God is withholding a miracle from you, your breakthrough. Meanwhile, the scriptures tell us that He has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. Our text above was an admonition to us mere mortals to withhold good from our brothers and sisters. Now if God holds us to this high standard, what makes you think that He will withhold good from you? Who has deceived you?
The Bible tells us that God has given to you all things that pertain to life and godliness. And so why should we turn around and think that God is withholding good from us. It is not His nature. God’s nature is love, which is expressed by giving. For God so loved the world, that He gave us His only begotten Son, …. the proof of His love for us, was that He gave us His Son. So why should you think for a second that God is withholding things from us, for any reason? No, God does not withhold from us, He is favourably disposed to doing us good. Settle it in your heart once and for all that He does not withhold good from you. If you’ve been believing God for a miracle, be rest assured that it will become a reality.
Dare to believe God, dare to take Him at His Word.
