Psalm 65: 11 You crown the year with Your goodness!
When I get to thinking about the goodness of God … naturally I think of how healthy I am and the joy that’s mine as I survey my family that sit around my table. They also are in health and moving forward in life. Really we are blessed and that I know.
Being part of the Christian community these thoughts are amplified 100 times over. People expressing their faith in God and working with a will to ready themselves for their part in the purpose of God are what I hear and see.
Yes it’s me, generalizing again. In a perfect world that may be the way it goes but you and I know this world is far from perfect and we all have our struggles … but that’s good too, for without struggle there is no progress. Mixed with faith, our struggles become victories … our tests become testimonies.
Yes it’s me, philosophizing again. Best we jump to the scripture and let our meditation be on the truth of God’s word. Amen!
Here’s something about God that I know …
Psalm 33: 5 KJV = He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
Look around and see … look for the good and you will find it right where you live … for no place is destitute of the goodness of the LORD. Hallelujah! Look back over the past year and see.
As I looked back, my heart filled with thankfulness. Truly I am grateful – what about you? Hasn’t the LORD been good to you?
But it is no accident … for you and I are one of them. Read the following verse and you will understand what I mean when I say, “ You and I are one of them.”
Psalm 33: 18 KJV = Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
Stop at verse 18 and you’ll miss the joy of verses 19 – 21 … pick up your Bible and read on and see what happens to those who hope in His mercy. J Have a great week. Zave
