Trust in the LORD and His Goodness!

October 20, 2010

Yesterday I read the following devotion: Richly Blessed. The last line of this devotion really struck me.
🙂
Faith in God’s goodness puts a song in your heart and praise on your lips.

It was as if the Lord reminded me that if I trust Him, follow His lead and know that He is good; He would put a song in my heart.

[LORD]You are good{excellent, right, moral} and do good{to be joyful, glad, right}; Teach me Your statutes. -Ps 119:68

All your plans are good, giving a future and a hope. -Jere 29:11

Today I read this! From: Dana

Dana Klibert
He wants you to know that you are His Beloved & that He has plans for you, plans to bless you soundly. He wants you following His course. He says He will always be with you & He says He will never let you down.

The Lord woke me up & took me to a page that said this Word & put it on my heart to post it here & many people came to my mind that it could be for, but I don’t know who you are, but my guess is He does lol! He doesn’t wake me up often, so I know in my heart that whoever you are, you really need this & He even went to the trouble of confirming it for me before I posted it cause He knows me. =o)

He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness. -Acts 14:17

Faith in God’s goodness puts a song in your heart and praise on your lips!

TRUST in the LORD and His goodness!

Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. … Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! -Ps 34:5,8

Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear, revere, and worship You, goodness which You have wrought for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men! -Ps 31:19

O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together. -Ps 34:3
