“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His lovingkindness is everlasting. Oh let Israel say, “His lovingkindness is everlasting.” Oh let the house of Aaron say, “His lovingkindness is everlasting.” (Psalm 118:1-3)
The Lord does not do things as we sinfully want them, but as they need to be. Great love has the Lord such that He does all that is needed, for He is good and His love is forever. Do not look to the Lord as One to dispense according to Your desires, but as the Sovereign who grants according to His perfect will. The Lord is perfect and good and worthy of all honor and praise.
Lord, teach me to see through the selfishness of my desires to know that You are always good and that Your will is perfect in love. Lead me through the circumstances of this age that I would forever hold fast to Your goodness and mercy. You alone know all that needs to be done to create in eternity the perfection of heaven. Lead me in faith to trust in Your perfect will.
Lord Jesus, You have taught us that equality with God is something that can never be grasped. Teach me to trust in Your leading that I would now and always live into the Father’s will. You have come that we might learn from You how to live life fully. Teach me, O Lord, and I will follow where You lead. Guide me today in those lessons I need to learn as I grow in Your likeness. Amen.
