Thankful for Goodness

Today, I am thankful that what we anticipate, is not what shall be – particularly when we seek to honor God in how we conduct ourselves in all things. On more than one occasion this week, I walked into situations that had made me uneasy prior to my entry, yet I entered having sought the Lord and His strength as I went. Each time, rather than the potential pitfall that I feared, God was faithful to meet me and was so very good and evident in each circumstance.

People on earth will be loyal to God, and God in heaven will be good to them. – (Psalm 85:11, ERV)

When we choose to trust in God and maintain our loyalty to Him, He moves in mighty and miraculous ways on our behalf. Sometimes we are aware immediately of His movement, and others times, it is only after we have walked away, that we can look back and recognize how evident His presence truly was. God is good all of the time. His goodness is not dependent on our faithfulness. I think we become acutely aware of Him and how He moves when our love and loyalty is securely placed in Him. May we give our whole heart unto the Lord, and trust in His goodness and grace.

May our loyalty,

be unto the Lord;

for in Him is found,

all grace He affords.

Our help and our hope,

in our time of need;

God is always good,

trust His light to lead.

In space of unrest,

His peace can come reign;

when He’s invited,

we will see true change.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are always good. Thank You that when we seek You and give our heart to You, You are faithful to us. Thank You that You meet us where we are, and are our help and our hope. Forgive us for fearing situations and circumstances that we cannot control – for You, O Lord, are ALWAYS in control. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would move forward fearlessly, trusting You to lead us every step of the way. Show us how to love others as You love us. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we give all of our loyalty unto You, and trust in Your goodness and grace. Amen.

Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. – 2 Corinthians 3:5
