Focus on God’s Goodness-His Glory

May 15th, 2024 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Exodus 33, verses 18 and 19.

Moses said to the LORD, “Now show me your glory.”

And the LORD said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”

This conversation happened as the Israelites were on their way to the Promised Land. The Presence of God is what Moses desired. He requested this of the LORD, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.”

On our journey of faith, this can be our request of God. “Wherever You are, that is where I want to be. Wherever You are working, that is where I want to be involved. Wherever You guide me, that is where I want to go. Wherever Your name is honored, that is where I want to be found.”

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

Vital Step to a Radiant Faith-Remember God’s Benefits

June 21st, 2023 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year to Shine, today’s Vital Step to a Radiant Faith is remembering God’s benefits.

This is what Psalm 103, verse 2 tells us to do. “Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”

Some of those benefits are listed in this Psalm. He forgives all our sins. His healing of all our diseases. He redeems us from the pit and crowns us with love and compassion. He satisfies our desires with good things.

When you think of God’s benefits in your life, what comes to your mind?

Consistently remembering God’s benefits has a way of filling our heart with gratitude. With each expression of thanks that we offer to God, we are praising Him for His goodness and kindness.

Remembering God’s benefits is a Vital Step to a Radiant Faith that makes a difference in our world.

Light Reflection-Ephesians 5:8-10-Children of Light

May 12th, 2023 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Light Reflection is from Ephesians 5:8 to 10.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.

In relationship with God, we come out of the darkness of our own sin and into the light of His grace and truth. In light of our identity as children of God, the writer is urging us to live that truth out in our attitude, speech, and conduct. The words we say and the things we do will please the Lord if they are motivated by our love for the Lord and in line with His goodness, righteousness, and truth.

This Light Reflection inspires us to find out what pleases the Lord and live it out in the Year to Shine.

Faith Building Verse-Psalm 23:6

October 13th, 2022 1 comment

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verse is Psalm 23:6.

With the LORD as my Shepherd, “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”

As we follow Jesus as our Good Shepherd, His goodness and love follow us every single day, step-by-step, moment-by-moment.  That’s because we have the presence and peace of God surrounding us. His grace blesses us today and saves us for eternity. We were made to worship God, and His dwelling place will be filled with the redeemed who love Him and have been saved by His grace.

In John 10:27, Jesus said, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.”

This Faith-Building Verse inspires us to experience the joy of following and worshipping Jesus in the Year of Relationship.

Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Goodness

June 28th, 2022 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is Goodness.

One definition of goodness is the quality of being morally virtuous. God is good, and works in ways that are always consistent with what is right and true. There is no corruption in Him.

Goodness is one of the qualities found in the fruit of the Spirit. As a result of walking in fellowship with God, we will experience His goodness and learn how to share His goodness with others.

Psalm 25:8 says, “Good and upright is the LORD; therefore, he instructs sinners in his ways.”

Romans 15:14 shows us how goodness benefits others: Paul told the church, “I myself am convinced, my brothers and sisters, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another.” The goodness of God equips us, through our words and actions, to build up others in the faith.

Goodness is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.

Promise of Hope-Goodness and Love

July 31st, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Psalm 23:6.

“Surely, your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”

David wrote this Psalm. As David walked with God, he was absolutely sure that he would be surrounded by the goodness and the love of God. His heart’s desire was to glorify God and to praise Him in worship. He said in Psalm 27:4, “This is what I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life.”

In our daily pursuit of God’s glory, we come to notice God’s goodness and love pursuing us, each and every day of our lives.

Having the assurance of God’s goodness and love following us is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.

Focus On God-His Goodness

March 17th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His goodness.

According to Acts 10:38, with the Holy Spirit and power, Jesus was anointed to do good and heal all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

In his book, The Practice of Godliness, author Jerry Bridges noted that goodness involves deliberate deeds that are helpful to others. While the Bible uses the word “Good” to refer to what is upright, honorable, and noble concerning moral character, it also uses it to describe actions that are beneficial to others.

When we examine the life of Jesus, we see that His actions were upright and helpful to others. His good deeds flowed out of His good character. He came with the power to heal our brokenness, transform our hearts into His likeness, deliver us from evil, and save us from our sins.

The goodness of God is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.
