Verse Of The Day : The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.- Psalms 145 : 9
LISTEN : The Lord is good to all! Isn’t he good to you? Absolutely he’s? Some may argue or deny the fact that God is good to all, but that doesn’t negate the truth that he’s good to you. Let’s be realistic, who blesses us with the sun, moon, stars, air, light, soil, life, wisdom, understanding, intelligence, etc ? Is it not God? No doubt, even the smallest piece of bread could be traced back to God. Why? This is because, without the soil there can’t be flour for bakers. Similarly, without air there will be no life, and because there’s no life, there can’t be any achievements credited to you. Beloved, can you see that God is good to all? He’s good to all his creatures. That is, he is kind and compassionate toward us; he is disposed and ready to do us good.(See Psalms 104:27 ; Acts 17 : 25 ).
There is not one of us whom he is not ready and willing to bless; or whose welfare he is not ready to promote. The bible further said this about God, “And his tender mercies are over all his works.” What does that mean? It simply means that in all that he has made, there is evidence that he is a kind and benevolent God. He has a heart to love and to bless what he has made. He’s compassionate; he is not disposed to cast off the weak, the erring, and the suffering. He’s willing to receive back again those who have wandered from him, to pardon the offending and to wipe away the tears of the sorrowful. God’s goodness and mercy are ultimately demonstrated in Jesus Christ who tasted death for every man. His grace for every soul is free. Beloved, let’s with one voice say, God is good to all.
Having read today’s devotional, what are you expected to do?
1. Always acknowledge and confess that God is good to you and all no matter what.
2. Rather than continue to count your losses, always count your blessings.
3. Take some minutes of the day each day, to consider what you have that you can’t trade for money, and then return praises to God for it.
4. Thank God everyday for his goodness towards you and others, do it till thanksgiving becomes your habit.
Daily Task : Don’t forget that God has a heart to love and to bless what he has made. He’s compassionate; he is not disposed to cast off the weak, the erring, and the suffering. He’s willing to receive back again those who have wandered from him, to pardon the offending and to wipe away the tears of the sorrowful. Trust him.
Daily Reflection : He who argues that God isn’t good to him is expressing nothing but the folly and imbecility of his heart.
Prayer : Precious Father, I thank you for your favour and goodness towards mankind, especially to me; I acknowledge that you’re good to all, I bless your name today in Jesus ‘ name, amen.
Prophetic Word : Today, I prophesy over your life, because God is good to all, his favour, goodness and mercies will locate you this season in Jesus ‘ name, amen.
