When going on treasure hunts, the author often tells people that God is in a good mood. Dedmon claims that the way we view God will determine the way we perceive His will. If we view God as a condemning and judging Father, we will tend to focus on the sin and short-comings of people. If we view God as a loving God who is always in a good mood towards us, we will believe that He always works towards redemptive solutions.
A friend of mine shared that his brother is angry at God. His brother’s wife left him and he believes God has a stick in His hand punishing him for mistakes he has made. The Bible tells us that God is slow to anger and that all of us have sinned and come short of living pure lives.
The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.
We also read of God’s wrath against those who disobey Him.
God is a righteous judge, a God who expresses his wrath every day.
God is not moody like a person whose emotions take a roller-coaster ride each day and is unpredictable. God does have emotions, so Dedmon is helping us understand God by challenging us to think of Him using understandable terminology.
So, is God in a good mood today?
God’s attributes – His permanent qualities, His DNA – is that He is Great and He is Good. His Greatness is wrapped in God’s character of spirituality, personality, life, infinity, and constancy. God’s Goodness is wrapped in God’s character of purity, integrity and love. God is infinitely pure, infinitely genuine and truthful, infinitely loving.
When God’s judgment is upon a nation or individual, it is with a broken heart and not because God is in a bad mood. I agree with Kevin Dedmon that God is in a good mood. You are his highest treasure and He has a wonderful destiny for you to live out today.
