God is good and faithful!

Scripture reading for June 22: Psalms 104-106

One of the attributes of God is that He is good!  Thankfully, God has been good to me and I have personally experienced that goodness for over 77 years!  In these last three psalms, the psalmist reflects on the goodness of God to His people because of Who He is.  Let’s reflect on the goodness of God.

God is light and in Him is no darkness at all or shadow of turning!  Our God is clothed in splendor and majesty! (Psalm 104:1-2)  By His great power He has stretched out the heavens like a tent canopy and decorated the sky with jewels of light.  He is the One Who uses the winds as His messengers and the lightening bolts as His servants. (Psalm 104:4)  He set the earth on its foundations and formed it’s surface, covering it with water and setting boundaries for that water.  He created the plants and animals and the birds of the air and fish of the sea. (Psalm 104:24-25)  Our majestic God is the source of all food, breath, and life!  He is worthy of continual praise for His goodness! (Psalm 104:33-35)

History is filled with the record of God’s miracles and covenant on behalf of His people.  (Psalm 105:8-10) The people of God have been cared for by God’s power and wisdom each day of their existence. He sent them to Egypt and gave Joseph to feed them in famine.  God brought the people out of slavery through Moses, loaded down with silver and gold.  He fed them and watered them on their journey (Psalm 105:37-41).  This was because of His promises to Abraham and the covenant that God was faithful to keep! 

Psalm 106 again declares the goodness and love of God! (Psalm 106:1)  This was but an attempt to proclaim an infinite subject!  God’s love also included His loving discipline!  Some of the judgments recorded here include the wilderness experience where a generation that would not believe died!  God dealt with unbelief, rebellion, idolatry, grumbling and disobedience!  (Psalm 106: 32-39)  God’s people have a history of unfaithfulness, but God has remained faithful!  Even when He handed them over to the nations, He heard their cry and because of His great love, he relented! (Psalm 106:44-46) 

Take a moment today to remember God and His faithfulness to you personally.  Look back over your life and offer thanks and worship for God’s creation, provision, healing, deliverance and discipline.
