God is a good God and He wants to do good things for you! He wants to satisfy your heart completely. He wants to lavish you with His love. He wants you to have the abundant life that you dream of !
Have you ever stopped to meditate on how good He is in your life? There are so many scriptures in the Bible that speak of His goodness and His desire to do us good.
Psalm 145:8-9 (AMP) says, “The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works [the entirety of things created].”
This word “gracious” here in the Hebrew means “disposed to show favor,” and the phrase “full of compassion” in the Hebrew means “an eager yearning to do you good.” So, we see that the Lord yearns, longs and desires to show us His favor and to do good things for us.
Psalm 23:6 (NLT) says, “Surely Your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life…” The Message version of this scriptures reads, “Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life.”
Not only does the Lord desire to do us good, His very goodness is pursuing us – chasing after us each day of our lives.
Many times in the hustle and bustle of life, we don’t take time to acknowledge Him, and we often forget that His love and goodness are pursuing us. But if we’d become more conscious and aware of the Lord’s goodness, we would expect it and see it more and more!
Most people think that God doesn’t care one bit about their lives, but that couldn’t be further from the truth!
Psalm 37:23 (NLT) says that “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.”
We have a heavenly Father Who desires to show us His goodness, pursues us with His goodness, and delights in every tiny detail of our lives! Can you fathom that? The All-Powerful, Supreme God, and Creator of the Universe cares about the tiniest details of your life!
If it’s important to you, then it’s important to God!
Why does God want to be good to us? Why does He concern Himself with the little details of our lives? Why does he want to show us His mercy and lovingkindness?
Because He loves us!
Ephesians 2:4 (AMP) says, “But God – so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us.”
His love for us is great and wonderful and intense! He can’t help but bestow His goodness and mercy on us. Micah 7:18 says that God “delights in showing mercy.”
Isaiah 63:7 (MSG) says, “I’ll make a list of God’s gracious dealings, all the things that need praising, all the generous bounties of God, His great goodness to the family of Israel – compassion lavished, love extravagant.
God lavishes His compassion on you. He loves you extravagantly. He is good to you!
Put yourself in remembrance of God’s goodness and love toward you. Meditate upon these scriptures on a regular basis. Expect Him to show His goodness in your life each day and He surely will!
