God’s Goodness

Our Bible Reading today is about a man who is troubled. He wonders whether God has left him alone. “I reached out for you all night long. My soul refused to be comforted” (verse 2b).
In verse 10, the man wonders if God has lost His power. But instead of thinking that God has left him, the writer says in verse 11, “I remember the amazing things that you did long ago.” Then the man lists some things that show God’s goodness to the Israelites.
When I am depressed, I often think about the bad things that have happened to me. I even imagine bad things that might happen in the future. Instead, I should be focusing on how God has helped me and how He will continue strengthening me.
God has done many wonderful things for you. He takes care of you every day. And, most importantly, God has given you the gift of salvation through Jesus. Think about His goodness today.
