"Reflecting on God's Goodness"

Recently, I have been reflecting on God’s goodness and expressing to Him my appreciation for all that He has done and is doing.  Sometimes things happen that are difficult to experience and understand.  In those times I am reminded of the verse in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”  I hope that each day you are seeing God’s hand of care and blessing in your life.  At times you may not understand what God is doing or why, but in those moments you can trust God because He is always faithful and good. Those moments give you the opportunity to build a deeper relationship with your Lord.  Your trust grows in God as you see Him over and over again working in your life.  Ultimately His purpose is that you might become more like Jesus Christ.  You may not understand the events of life and you may have to admit that your trust in God is running a little thin.  In those times you need to remind yourself that trusting God is not having full knowledge of all that He is doing in your life but having complete faith in God’s person and character.  The Apostle Paul reminds all of us in 2 Timothy 2:13, “If we are faithless, He remains faithful.” God is always faithful and will never let you down.  In these next weeks, I would encourage you to celebrate God’s goodness and His faithfulness in your life.   May you grow to not only trust God for your future in heaven but also for the things you face each day this side of heaven.

Prayer:  Lord, thank you for your goodness in my life.  I see your love and care demonstrated in my life on a daily basis.  Help me to see things more from your perspective and to thank you for all that you are doing.  Amen
