Daily Readings — Mercy Plus Goodness!

Day 2055: Getting a crown today – some fun!

Scripture: “Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever” Psalm 107:1  The LORD is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made” Psalm 145:9

Thoughts/questions: Yesterday’s post referred to God’s mercy – please read it if you haven’t! Mercy – not getting what one deserves – would be just OK in and of itself. Yet combined with the goodness of God, now we have something!

Not only do we start each day with a clean slate, but we also are promised God’s goodness! Not only do we have the absence of negative consequences, but we also have positive divine intervention! Not only are we to be thankful for God’s willingness to forego our deserved punishment, but we also are to be thankful for God’s goodness infused into our lives! Not only can we live without fear of the past, but we also can live with great hope regarding the good God has planned for our future!

What a great God! What a great life we have partnering with the living God of the Universe! Praise and thank Him!!!

Suggested prayer: Almighty God, You are truly a great God! You can take all of my circumstances and work them together for my ultimate good. Yes, You are good even when there’s nothing good in me . . .
