Daily Devotion: Oh How Great

Bible Reading: Psalm 31:15-24

Key Verse: Verse 19 - "Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!"

Key Words: Oh how great is thy goodness

The psalmist David is believed to have written this psalm when being pursued by Saul. It was during this time of adversity he sings about the goodness of God.

Corrie Ten Boom writes in her book The Hiding Place: "Often I have heard people say, 'How good God is! We prayed that it would not rain for our church picnic, and look at the lovely weather!' Yes, God is good when He sends good weather; but God was also good when He allowed my sister, Betsie, to starve to death before my eyes in a German concentration camp. I remember one occasion when I was very discouraged there. Everything around us was dark, and there was darkness in my heart. I remember telling Betsie that I thought God had forgotten us. 'No, Corrie,' said Betsie, 'He has not forgotten us. Remember His Word: ‘For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.’" Corrie concludes, “There is an ocean of God’s love available—there is plenty for everyone. May God grant you never to doubt that victorious love—whatever the circumstances.”

We must all come to the place in our life that we realize that God is good ALL THE TIME!

What to do:
✞ Grow and mature to the place where you realize God hasn’t done something TO you, but FOR you.
