Thoughts of Devotion:

As we meditate on the God that we serve, and on all that he is for our lives we can declare, God is good! He is always good to us. Anything good that is in the universe is found in God. All his essence, his nature is described as good. The Bible continually teaches us how good God is even when we don’t deserve his benevolence and mercy. Jesus declares to us in Luke 6:35, “But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.”

I ask you, have you met this great God? Have you experienced the love and mercy that he offers? Thank God that there are those of us that have experienced how good God has been in our lives, he has forgiven, saved, cleansed, restored us and so much more that we would not be able to describe his goodness and love today. How much more has God done with his people! We are privileged to have a God in heaven that has demonstrated himself to be so good in our lives. It ministers to me how the Psalmist declares it in Psalms 34:8 “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”

With all this demonstration of how good he is in our lives, all we have left to say is, I worship you Lord and exalt your name on high! There is no one like our God, so good to his people. On occasions we can feel so unworthy of his many favors that he has upon our lives. It is when we thing about how good he is, that we raise our voice in worship and praise. In Ezra 3:11 we have a great example of this, “And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord : “For He is good, For His mercy endures forever toward Israel.” Then all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.”

Today I encourage you to worship and glorify God for how good he has been with you. Remember that there is only one that is good, and he is the God that we serve.
