"Expect His Goodness"

"Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness." Psalm 65:11

I am believing that this is going to be a good year. By that do I mean that nothing bad is going to happen? When I say that does it mean that I don't think that anything will go wrong, that there won't be trials, pain or suffering? Not at all. This world is tainted by sin. As long as sin is present there will be heartaches and tribulation. Jesus Himself said that in this world there would be tribulation.

When I say that I am believing that this is going to be a good year, I mean that regardless of what may come our way, we will see the goodness of the Lord shining through it. We will see Him working all things together for our good. We will see His power prevail and His presence will go with us. We will see His goodness entwined in every situation, and some how even when things aren't right, His glory will be revealed.

So expect His goodness to be present even in the midst of calamity. Expect His goodness to overshadow what may seem devastating. Expect His goodness to follow you this year-- and all the days of your life.

Have a great day. Good things may not be happening, but His goodness will still surround you.
