21 Days of Prayer – Day 15
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Blessed is the person who goes to him for safety.
The word good is a bit vague in our language. We use it to describe
everything that’s average in our lives. “How was your day today?”
“Good.” “How did you sleep last night?” “Good.” “How was your
peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich?” “Good.” So when we say, “God is
good,” what are we really saying?
The Hebrew word that is translated “good” in this verse meant pleasant,
agreeable to the senses, excellent, valuable, kind and morally correct.
It was a word packed with meaning, not an empty one!
God is difficult to describe. He is certainly not average. He is perfect.
He is all the goodness we can imagine —and even more. Nothing
about God is bad, evil or impure —everything about God is good.
And not only is God good, but he wants what’s good for us. And
there’s nothing average about that either. God’s idea of good may not
mean easy or comfortable, but it will get us to where he wants us to
be, which is right where we need to be.
- What does the word good mean?
- Name five things that are good. What makes them good?
Dear God, we praise you for your goodness. Thank you for wanting
what’s good in our lives. Give us the vision to recognize the goodness of
your plans. Amen.
