For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land of flowing streams and pools of water, with fountains and springs that gush out in the valleys and hills.
ACTS 14:17 (NLT)
"...but he never left them without evidence of himself and his goodness. For instance, he sends you rain and good crops and gives you food and joyful hearts."
Evidence of God's goodness is easy to find.
If the evidence of God's goodness is so common why do so many people struggle to see where it leads?
Good God, thank you for being so good to us. We get distracted from seeing your goodness by difficulties that take over our minds, preventing us from noting how much goodness stands behind even a blade of grass. Keep us aware so that we can more fully share in who you are and what you're offering. I'm going to look for your goodness in your creation, in history, and in my own life. That should keep me busy for a lifetime. Amen.
Our Father in Heaven,
we hold your name in the highest regard.
Please come and establish your reign here on earth
so that everything that happens here will align
with what is happening in heaven.
and we’ll forgive those who have wronged us.
Shield us from the trials and temptations that come our way.
Lastly, we pray that you would protect us from all forms of evil. Amen!
