Psalms 31:19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

THOUGHT: The LORD GOD IS GOOD! The LORD GOD, who created everything, is the essence of what is perfect GOODNESS and it is demonstrated in all that He created as well as His kindness, compassion and mercy towards you. As your Creator He has planned what is best and He is GOOD to you as well as to all others. However, His benefits and blessings are even better towards those who love Him, obey Him and reverence Him. For you to receive what is for your absolute best good, it would require your complete surrender to the LORD God who is purely GOOD and from whom all GOODNESS comes. (NOTE: James 1:17 Every GOOD gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.)
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father and LORD GOD OF ALL GOODNESS: Thank You for all of the GOOD gifts that You have given me. It is with gratitude that I recognize that all GOOD comes from You and that this has always been Your plan. Forgive me for the times that I have gone against Your good will, Your good purposes and Your good plans. I surrender to all of the perfect plans that You have made for me. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!
