God Is Good!

Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Psalm 34:8

When was the last time you thought about all of the great things that God has given you?
We tend to think about the stuff we need and can't have and often forget to praise God for what He freely gives us David knew of God's goodness and depended on it. David's prayers helped silence his fears; there were many others besides David who have looked unto the Lord by faith and prayer, a decision brought them much needed comfort. In reality, when we look to the world, we are confused and worried. It is only when we look upon God in His glory and majesty that we find peace. David was an ordinary man and he had lived quite an eventful life, but his faith in God, turned him into an extra-ordinary man.; and because of his faith, the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. One of the things I admire the most about David is the fact that his most passionate psalms of praise were written before he experienced any victory. He was able to foresee the outcomes of his trials because He knew of God's goodness.

Friend, tap into God's goodness and experience its comfort. You have to focus on the Kingdom. You cannot allow yourself to dwell on the things of the world, or you will risk going insane. The local and national news are always devastating. Friend, God is good and you cannot begin to enjoy Him until you acknowledge His goodness. He has the power to change the ordinary into the extraordinary. Take the time today to Praise God for His mercy, grace and goodness and you will be blessed. Do you feel alone with no source of comfort? God is the answer. Are you searching for someone who can take care of your heart needs and wants? Who else can understand your heart better than the one who made it? The maker always knows his creation. I urge you to look deeply into yourself today and really make that special connection with God and you will find a peace you never thought possible.

Praise the Lord!
