God’s Grace

Psalms 25:8


Have you ever really taken the time to sit and ponder on the grace, mercy and goodness of God? Sometimes I catch myself thinking about many situations when something terrible should’ve and could’ve happened. I find myself coming to the realization that I take for granted how good and merciful God truly is. The arrogance of humans causes us to think that God owes us something and that He is supposed to be good and merciful to us. God’s goodness towards us is His decision and that’s what’s great!  

There are times when we have all been guilty of worrying about if we’ve made the right people happy. Is it our boss, mother, father, best friend? The fact is, none of those are correct. Man will often be quick to write you off the minute you make a mistake. Man will treat you as if you are their doormat and walk all over you. Man will criticize and demean you because of your mistakes. What about God? That’s where His goodness comes in. Traveling through life, we come across many stumbling blocks and we even fall or fail in certain areas. Unlike man, God doesn’t toss us to the side like a used rag. God picks us up, He teaches us, helps us to learn from our mistakes, encourages us and puts us back on the right path.

Psalms 25:8 makes this clear! The key words in this scripture are GOOD and RIGHT. We are immediately reminded that God is GOOD! While man has the habit of being fickle and fake, God remains faithful! Don’t get tired and never give up. We serve a loving God. He will be there and never leave us! Put your hope, trust and faith in Him. Amen!
