Focus on God’s Goodness-Greatness

April 24th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Second Samuel 7:22.

“How great are you, Sovereign LORD! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.”

This was a prayer from the heart of David, acknowledging that God has no rival to His throne. No one else is worthy to share His glory.  He cannot be outwitted or overpowered. Who can fathom His greatness? Who can comprehend His graciousness?  Who can understand the magnitude of His love? His redemption plan covers His people with grace forever.

David marveled at the great and awesome wonders that God performed for his people. Just as God delivered Israel from slavery in Egypt in the days of Moses, so He is able to deliver us from slavery to sin today. Just as God guided the Israelites to the Promised Land, so He is able to lead us to heaven where we can enjoy His presence forever.

The greatness of God reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
