Focus on God’s Goodness-Attention to Details

May 6th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Matthew 10:30 and 31.

Jesus said, “Even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So, don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

In Psalm 139, David praised the Lord because he recognized that he was fearfully and wonderfully made.

The same is true of us. God is familiar with every detail of our lives. He knows how we are wired, because He made us. He knows what we are doing every moment of every day. He also sees what other people don’t see. He perceives our unspoken thoughts. He is familiar with our dreams, hopes, and fears. He even knows what we will say before we say it. When David pondered this reality, he said, “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.”

We may not comprehend all that God understands about us, but we can marvel over the fact that He knows us better than we know ourselves.

God’s attention to the details of our lives reflects the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
