THE LORD IS GOOD
Make no mistake about it, when we say the Lord is good. Those are true words. In fact, the Lord is mighty good. He is better than good for He is excellent. He deserves our praise. Sometimes we say things from habit. We have often heard people say, “The Lord is good.” Yet, it is more than a saying; it is a fact. In saying it, we reflect upon our past and see how the Lord has made ways and opened doors for us. Our vocabulary does not have enough words to express this, so we say Thank You for your goodness. Lamentations 3:24 is our reference is:
“I say to myself, ‘The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in Him!’”
In this moving passage, the writer declares the goodness of the Lord. The poet comes to the realization of God’s goodness. He remembers what the Lord has done for him in his affliction because of His compassion. He puts his hope and trust in him believing that his life is in the Lord’s hands. He indicates that those who depend upon Him and seek Him will discover how good He is. I pray that you have discovered for yourself the goodness of the Lord and acknowledge how good He has been to you. We are called to bear witness of the Lord’s mighty power in our lives. Never forget what the Lord has done for you. May you continue to give Him glory, honor and praise for how He has blessed you over again.
