Yesterday, I was reflecting on the past week and thinking about how I had seen God’s goodness. I can see God’s goodness in every situation, even on the days that didn’t go the way that I had hoped.
Maybe you had a wonderful week, or perhaps this has been one of the most difficult weeks. Your Monday may have started out sunny, but by Friday, everything had changed, and dark clouds seemed to hover over you.
Life is full of ups and downs, and change is inevitable. The one thing I know is God doesn’t change, He’s the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8). In an ever-changing world, that gives me great comfort!
No matter what type of week we’ve had we have to cling to His word because that’s where we’ll find hope and truth.
Here are some verses that remind us of the goodness of God:
- Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6
- I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13
- I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works. Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, and I will declare Your greatness. They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness and sing of Your righteousness. Psalm 145:5-7
I love this quote by Lysa TerKeurst, Shallow seeking will produce shallow believing and leave us vulnerable to falling. But deep seeking will produce deep believing and equip us to stand firm, no matter what comes against us.
I would love to hear how you saw the goodness of God this week.
