You’re On the Planet to Make God Look Good


Hey everyone! How are you? I hope all is well!

Today I want to share a short video from John Piper on the supremacy of God in all things!

The title of the blog post can make you squirm because you are probably thinking to yourself, “gee no my life is messed up, I can’t possibly make God look good.” But remember the gospel and also the work God is doing in you,

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.”

-Philippians 2:13 ESV

Tomorrow I will write and comment more on the verse below so stay tuned! Let’s hear Pastor John Piper share on how we make God look good in our lives.

Everything in your life. Everything you say, everything you do, think, you feel, all the relationships you have, it all has to do with God.

God has ordained your existence and everything you do, everything you say, you feel, everything you think, and all the relationships you have been ordained so that they may make God look good.

You are on the planet in order to say things, do things, think things, feel things, be in relationships, in such a way, as to make Jesus Christ look like he really is namely supremely valuable!

Do I devote my life, down to the details, the way I study, what I eat, what I drink, what I wear, how I do my hair, what movies I watch, what websites I go to and how long I stay there, what car I drive, where I live, how I do my work, where I work, what jokes I tell and like to hear, what kind of language I use, who my friends are and why, and how I spend my leisure time. Are you asking how  do all those things spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all people? How do I do all those things so that I make Christ look really great? So that I do it in a way that communicates He is more valuable to me than all those things, than anything else!

Something to think about, right?

Always, for God’s glory and our joy in Him!

Why God Allows Suffering

Hey everyone! I’m feeling a little better today, thanks for your prayers. I’ve been in bed all day trying to recover from some neck pain cause by the accident. I think it’s called whiplash, not a pleasant feeling 🙁 Hopefully my recovery is quick and I can get this behind me.

I want to share a short video with you all today.

 “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV

Helpful words from Pastor Greg Laurie. He lost his son Christopher in a traffic accident in 2008. Click here for the article. I admire some of the words he said,

“I’m doing okay. The Lord is with me.

“I can’t be afraid of suffering and I’m going to continue on with greater commitment,

Be right with God because you don’t know when life can end.

1. You need God.

2. God is with you!

Wait for the LORD


Hey everyone! How are you? I Hope all is well!

There is no place for faith if we expect God to fulfill immediately what he promises.

-John Calvin (1509-1564), French reformer


Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!

Psalm 27:14 ESV


Wait for the LORD;- This is the sum of all the instruction in the psalm; the main lesson which the psalm is designed to convey. The object is to induce others, from the experience of the psalmist, to trust in the Lord; to rely upon Him; to come to Him in trouble and danger; to wait for His interposition when all other resources fail.

none who wait for you shall be put to shame;

Psalm 25:3 ESV

Be of good courage – The Hebrew word here means, “be strong.” That is, do not faint. Do not be dismayed. Still hope and trust in the Lord.

let your heart take courage;- He will strengthen “you.” He will enable you to perform your duties, and to triumph over your enemies.

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31 NLT

wait for the LORD!- Repeating an idea with which the heart was full; a lesson resulting from his own rich experience. He dwells upon it as a lesson which he would fix deeply in the mind, that in all times of danger and difficulty, instead of despondency, instead of sinking down in despair, instead of giving up all effort, we should go forward in the discharge of duty, putting our trust solely in the Lord.

Trust in the LORD


Hey everyone! How are you? I hope all is well!


Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT


I lay my “whys”

before your cross

in worship kneeling,

my mind too numb

for thought,

my heart beyond

all feeling:

And worshiping,

realize that I

in knowing you

don’t need a “why.”

-Ruth Bell Graham (1920-2007), wife of Billy Graham


Trust in the LORD with all your heart – This is a most important precept:

1. God is the Fountain of all good.

2. He has made his intelligent creatures dependent upon himself.

3. He requires them to be conscious of that dependence.

4. He has promised to communicate what they need.

5. He commands them to believe his promise, and look for its fulfillment.

6. And to do this without doubt, fear, or distrust; “with their whole heart.”

Do not depend on your own understanding.- אל תשען al tishshaen, do not prop yourself. It is on God, not on yourself, that you are commanded to depend. He who trusts in his own heart is a fool.

Seek his will in all you do- Begin, continue, and end every work, purpose, and device, with God. Earnestly pray for his direction at the commencement; look for his continual support in the progress; and so begin and continue that all may terminate in his glory: and then it will certainly be to your good; for we never honor God, without serving ourselves. Self sufficiency and self-dependence have been the ruin of mankind ever since the fall of Adam. The grand sin of the human race is their continual endeavor to live independently of God, i.e., to be without God in the world. True religion consists in considering God the fountain of all good, and expecting all good from him.
