Focus on God’s Goodness-Presence of God

May 7th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Joshua 1:9.

The LORD said to Joshua, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you.” Joshua had the assurance of God’s Presence as he led God’s people into the Promised land.

The Bible highlights God’s presence as a source of encouragement, strength, comfort, and help.

When Jesus gave the Great Commission to His disciples, He said, “Surely I will be with you to the end of the age.” As they preached the gospel, the Lord worked with them. This gives us great encouragement whenever we share the Gospel with others. As we go, we are not alone. God’s Presence is with us to help us share the testimony of Jesus in a moving way.

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