through His Word
The goodness of God surrounds our families like a mighty fortress and comforts our hearts like a warm blanket. The goodness of God makes gray days sunny and sunny days brighter. The goodness of God gives us reason to hope in the midst of a storm and to sing, “It is well with my soul.”
Because God is good, we always have hope.
Because He loves us, He has a good plan for our lives (if we’ll follow Him).
Because He has flawless character, we can trust Him that His ways are best.
Psalm 37:4 (NKJV) directs us to delight in God:
Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Do you delight in God’s goodness? Do you take joy in who He is? The character, will, and ways of God are so good—so loving, right, and faithful—that in every season and situation of life, we have reason to delight in Him.
Since it’s easy to focus on what goes wrong in society or in daily life, I am beginning a new series spotlighting the goodness of God. In how many ways can we trust God to provide for His children and protect them? How does He work good out of harm or difficult situations? What testimonies can we give of His faithful love, trustworthy character, and joy-sustaining fellowship?
In this new series through May and the summer months, guest bloggers and I will explore the many facets of God’s goodness. What aspects of God’s character do you delight in? What topics would you like for us to discuss? Tell us in the comments below, and it’s my prayer that this series orients our attention on the great goodness of our God and stirs our hearts to delight in Him and trust Him all the more!
