The Goodness of God 9/28/2018 1/2023

, With Time With Our Creator James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” Heavenly Father, I praise You for Your wonderful attributes such as being the Creator, all- powerful, all-knowing, everywhere present, unchanging, loving and merciful; for giving me the ability to recognize the good things coming from You: beauty, mercy, kindness, grace and love. Thank you that You always plan whatever happens in my life for my good even when I can’t begin to comprehend the situation. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 Give me an understanding and appreciation of Your amazing creation. How precisely everything works together to provide not only for human beings, but for all the animals and plants of the earth. I ask you to raise up powerful voices in our culture to speak about Your Goodness. Direct me on a daily basis to live out Your Goodness as an example to others. Thank you for the wonderful promise in Psalm 31:19 “How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you. You lavish it on those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world.” (NLT) Thank you, Lord, for your goodness. In Jesus’ Wonderful Name, Amen. Written with permission m
