What God Didn’t Do vs. Collateral Goodness

If you look for the bad/negative – you will find it.

If you start looking for God’s goodness – you will start seeing his hand and fingerprints on every aspect of your life.

Pastor David Possinger
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
    do not depend on your own understanding.
6 Seek his will in all you do,
    and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)
27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers[a] in harmony with God’s own will. 28 And we know that God causes everything to work together[b] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
Romans 8:27-28 (NLT)
