Focus on God’s Goodness-Great Things

February 2nd, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s goodness is found in First Samuel 12:24.

Samuel said to the Israelites: “Be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.”

It is good to consider the source when we hear someone instructing us to do something. In the case of Samuel, he was a trustworthy source to speak for the Lord. He had a lifetime of experience walking with the Lord as a true prophet. He prayed for the people that he led and showed great concern for their well-being. Samuel consistently pointed people to trust in the Lord faithfully.

He reminded the Israelites in specific ways how God provided for them and led them this far. When we remember the great things that God has done for us, we have motivation to continue the journey of trusting God to lead the way.

The great things God has done for us reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
