“Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His lovingkindness is everlasting. Who can speak of the mighty deeds of the Lord, or can show forth all His praise?” (Psalm 106:1-2)
The Lord is always good. When you think something bad has happened and your thoughts blame the Lord, you are thinking that He is not good. All things work for good for those who love the Lord. Come into the Lord’s presence and know that He is always gracious and good and that He has already provided all that is needed. Give Him praise and thanksgiving at all times and in all places.
Lord, I do, even subtly, blame you for circumstances. Guide me away from selfishness to understand that I am in You and only in You will I find the joy for which You created me. Teach me the new way of thinking that understands by faith that all things have always been in Your hands and that You are making a new creation of all who come through Christ into Your presence.
Lord Jesus, You are making all things new for all who are coming through You by grace into eternity. Teach me this day a little more of the truth of Your presence and the Father’s purpose. Guide me, Holy Spirit, in the narrow way of sanctification that I may now and always live according to the purpose for which I have been created. Create in me a new and clean heart that praises and thanks You always. Amen.
