Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/19/12

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness…”  (Psalm 107:21a)

God is good, and everything about God is good. He cannot do but good for goodness is His very nature. All He has created is good, and God’s goodness flows from His throne of grace. God is good; there is no other like God, rich in mercy, patient and long-suffering, pouring out His blessings, showing love and kindness to each generation. He is wrapped in goodness like a cloak; it radiates from His very being. God is good, for He is trustworthy and true; He sent His son to redeem us, to bring His goodness to us, that His grace and mercy might save us, for His goodness overcomes evil and is a shield about us. Give thanks to God for His great goodness; praise Him for His is good, and His goodness lasts forever.

May the goodness of the Lord rise up in your heart and fill your mouth with thanks and praise.
