The Will to Do Good

What does "God is all in all" actually mean?

In the scriptures it is written:

"When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." (Isaiah 43: 2)
Is God the water and fire? Is this why you will not drown or be burned?

If God is everything then you could argue that God is the bomb that kills and maims many; God is the snake whose venom could kill you; the virus that could make you sick, etc.

I believe God is the will to do good that is in all. The will to do good is love. Love is our essence.

Thus, when you know that God is the love in the fire, it will not burn you because Love never hurts.

When you know that God is the love in the hurricane, it will not harm you.

When you know that God is the love in the snake, it will not harm you either.

You can now experience life without fear because you know that it is the one Love that is clothing Herself in infinite forms.

However, when you don't recognise that Love is present in all, you see life as "you against the world/universe." You're in a constant battle to survive. And according to your belief, so be it.

God is the will to do good.
God is love.
