Your Good is So Good – Romans 8:28

I’m so excited to share the song I wrote recently! “Your Good is So Good” is based on Romans 8:28.

✝️ Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭28‬ ‭ESV‬‬

❤️I’ve always loved and believed this Romans 8:28! But there have been times I’ve wondered why certain situations turned out the way they did and thought, “God, You promised all things would work together for good, and this doesn’t seem good.” But I am learning that we can always, without question, trust His definition of good. From here on out, if his definition of good is different than mine, I’m going to do my best to trust His!

🥰 As always, I would love to hear your feedback, and if the message in this song resonates with you, please share this video!

🎸Side Note: I changed my piano to a guitar setting when I recorded the accompaniment, because that’s how I kept hearing it in my head!

Your Good is So Good

Wholehearted Faith

When a Biblical figure earns a mention in Hebrews 11 (also known as the Bible’s faith chapter), it is worth diving into their story and contemplating what we can learn from it. 

Hebrews 11:7 says, “By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.”

When we turn the page to Genesis to read Noah’s part of the story, we discover that he had found favor in God’s eyes and that Noah had deemed God worthy of wholehearted faith. 

Noah had never seen rain or floodwaters, but when God told him a flood was coming that would destroy all living creatures, he believed Him. When God said something, Noah believed it without requiring visual evidence or further clarification.

God gave Noah precise directions concerning the measurements and materials to use in the ark’s construction, and he followed them to the letter. Genesis 6:22 says, “Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him.” And Genesis 7:5 says, “And Noah did all that the Lord had commanded him.” Noah had no interest in cutting corners or half-heartedly attempting to complete his assignment.

It might have seemed ludicrous to the typical bystander when Noah built a gigantic ark. If Noah had been motivated by people’s reactions, this story could have gone in a different direction. However, as we have found, Noah’s motivation was wholehearted faith. And that wholehearted faith produced wholehearted obedience. 

Noah’s wholehearted way of living had history-changing, life-altering results:

  • His family was saved and blessed.
  • The world was repopulated.
  • The relationship between God and man resumed. 

Although God may not command us to build a gigantic ark anytime soon, if we respond to Him with wholehearted faith and obedience, we will see history-changing, life-altering results in our own lives.

Prayer: Dear Lord, help us to see who You truly are and that You are worthy of our wholehearted faith and obedience. Give us the desire and courage to follow You wholeheartedly. Amen.
