"SURELY your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life... " (Ps. 23:6 NIV).
If you set your heart on pursuing the goodness of God, you're always headed in the right direction.
POSITIONING OUR HEART
Moses knew that really well. Moses prayed that he would know God, to know His ways, to know His presence, and to know His glory! And because his heart was postured in the right place, requesting for the right things, praying for the right priorities, the Lord then promised to shower him with His goodness!
Moses prayed in Exodus 33:
13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight... 15 Then he said to Him, "If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here." 18 And he said, "Please, show me Your glory."
And the Lord replied: 14 And He said, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." 19 Then He said, "I will make all My goodness pass before you..."
To know God is to know His glory, to know His glory is to know His presence; to know His presence is to know His ways, to know His ways is to know His goodness!
How would you like it if the Lord's goodness permeates and invades every area of your life this year, bringing healing and restoration, breakthrough and dreams fulfilled, relationship reconciliation and family salvation, debt cancellation and increased favor at your work?
Psalm 31:19 says, "How great is the goodness You have stored up for those who fear You. You lavish it on those who come to You for protection, blessing them before the watching world."
The Hebrew word for "great" is "rab", meaning abundant, large, of major importance, chief, weighty, noble, princely. And that is the basis, measure, and magnitude of God's goodness that He wants to lavish on us.
And it says God has goodness "stored up" for those who fear Him. It's in the past tense. In other words, in the heart of God and from Heaven's perspective, the goodness of God is a done deal.
He's got it ready; it's stored up for us.
The goodness of God is not something that God does; it is who He is! It is His nature to be good to His children! He is incapable of sabotaging His nature!
All we need is to choose to believe His goodness, declare it, meditate on it, speak it over our lives and circumstances, receive it by faith, and watch what the Lord will do on our behalf!
The Lord will bless you before a watching world! People are going to witness the power, provision, and blessings of God over your life!
I am confident that I see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!
The Lord has stored up goodness for me and He's ready to lavish it over my life!
The Lord will bless me and enlarge my territory. His hand and favor is becoming so evident in my life!
