You have done many good things for me, Lord, just as you promised. (Psalm 119:65)
You are good and do only good things. (Psalm 119:68)
Often during my Christian experience I have awakened during the night with a thought of concern. Most times they are quickly dismissed and I return to sleep, but there are other moments I cannot. In those moments I get up, get my Bible, and pray.
One such moment I discovered the wealth of these words penned by the psalmist. I then became a recipient of his experience, for indeed God has done so many good things.
God, who watches over us and leads us, does only good. He has done many good things for us, none of which we are worthy of, yet he gives goodness because this is his nature and desire.
The truth and light of God’s word, when we dwell in the place of gratefulness, will result in a change of perspective. One from concern and despair, to one of light and hope.
Indeed you have provided me with goodness and my heart knows it well. Lead me through this day with a heart of gratefulness. My Father in heaven has done many good things for me. Amen.
