Psalm 34:8 NKJV — Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
God is good.
His goodness is seen throughout the whole Earth.
It doesn’t take long to find, if one’s heart is open to understanding.
Who feeds the birds?
Who is there when the deer gives birth?
Who provides the sea creatures their food?
From the greatest beasts to the smallest insects we can see God’s goodness.
But it doesn’t take long to notice the opposite as well.
A short viewing of the World news and evil is evident.
Infact, very young children will harm others without the slightest hint of remorse.
Therefore we must diligently seek God’s goodness and keep our eyes lifted to His character.
Our lives can be filled with God’s goodness, but it takes training, correction, and discipline to learn how to walk in God’s standards. It’s an effort to do good, because evil comes naturally due to our sinful nature.
3 John 1:11 NKJV — Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.
Keeping ourselves focused upon His goodness, helps us to self evaluate.
God’s goodness is so abundant and incredible, we can take it for granted.
Did I eat today?
Praise God! It was through His provision I did.
Have I slept?
Praise God, for true rest comes from God.
Is the sun shining? Is the rain watering the ground?
Praise God! His creation is incredible!
Am I breathing?
Praise the Lord! Every breath is a gift from our Wonderful Lord.
But it’s even more than that.
God has such incredible love, that He is my daily Guide and Mentor.
God speaks to me.
He listens to me.
He provides for things I don’t understand.
His hands are always ready to hold me up, especially when I have nothing.
He’s kind, compassionate, caring, and strong.
His goodness is where I find rest from striving, freedom from worry.
God truly is good.
1 Chronicles 16:34 NKJV — Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
