what is good!

“Yes, the Lord will give what is good; and our land will yield its increase” (Psalm 85:12).

You might have been expecting some good things to happen, in the past. Has the good happened? When will a solution come to this problem? Were you depressed with the thought that how long I need to struggle for this? Today God promises you and says, “My son! My daughter! I will give you what is good.” He is a God of compassion. The heavenly Father will be merciful to you as a father is to his children.

Likewise, whatever good things you could do to others, do them wholeheartedly and with full strength. If you withhold good from those to whom it is due, when you are empowered to do so, it will become a sin for you. God looked at Cain and said, “If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door” (Genesis 4:7).

Jesus Christ is always compassionate towards you and does good things. He always did good things to people during His entire stay in this world. He healed the sick, delivered those who were demon-possessed and preached the good things. When the people were hungry, He fed people numbering five thousand with five loaves of bread and two fish. Will He not do a miracle for you? Will He not open a way for you?

The Scripture says: “….how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him” (Acts 10:38).

Today, what is the good thing you need? You may wish “There should be peace and joy in our home. I should be given a good job and good income so that the debt issues are solved. We have been longing for the fruit of the womb. God should give the good things” Yes. God will definitely deliver those who are demon – possessed and make them rejoice. He will wipe out all your tears and turn them into dancing. He will surely give the good things to you.

A woman who was a sinner was in need of peace. She went to none other than God, broken-heartedly fell on His feet and cried shedding tears. Jesus did not condemn her. He comforted her saying, “Your sins have been forgiven and you may go in peace” (Luke 7:37, 38).

Even today, do not carry all your mental burdens on yourself but place them on the feet of God. He will give the good things to you.

To meditate: “Cast your burden on the Lord and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22).
