Focus on God’s Goodness-Provision

May 29th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Psalm 23, verse 5.

With the LORD as my Shepherd, “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.”

David wrote Psalm 23 and certainly knew what it was like to have enemies. He also knew what it was like to experience God’s provision and protection. He had been anointed as King of Israel. We have a purpose too. It might not be a royal destiny, but it is a noble plan, because it has been orchestrated by God.

God’s plan for His followers is an abundant life that overflows with His grace and goodness. His spiritual blessings provide forgiveness for our sins, a place of belonging in His family of believers, and the presence of the Holy Spirit to empower our witness for Christ. Our cup overflows with peace, joy, love, and hope, because of what Christ has done for us and what He will do when He returns.

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