Message for December 2, 2018 from Pastor Shirley

Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. I had fainted, (lost heart) unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord and be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. Psalms 27:13-14

     The word faint was added by translators but I think it expresses the feelings David had.  He refers to the state of his mind produced by the efforts of his enemies to destroy him. So numerous and mighty were they that he says his support was his faith in God.  David believed that he would see the goodness of God upon the earth.  

     We to can say with confidence, “There is something SO GOOD about God that I know I’m going to see and experience personally while I’m living this earthly life that I’m captivated by it, I want it, I will eagerly wait for it as long as necessary because it is so good that it makes even this life worth living.”  

     As I have been studying on the goodness of God it appears to be the sum total of all of God’s attributes. Exodus 33:17-19 “Then Moses said, “I pray Thee, show me Thy glory!” And He said, “I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you and will proclaim the name of the Lord before you”. The glory of the Lord proclaims the “goodness” of God. This goodness is all wrapped up in His Name-all of who He is. God is the embodiment of good he wants us to take part in His goodness.

     The year 2019 – The year we are going to see the GOODNESS of GOD in a big way!!   Expressing His Glory on the earth with wonders, marvels, miracles of the goodness of your God!!
