Message for October 1, 2022 from Pastor Shirley

David said, “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living”.   Psalms 27:13-14                                                                   As I was preparing for the message, “Finding Honey In The Hard Places Of Life” I heard these words, “the goodness of God, the goodness of God”.  Honey is the goodness of God.  The Bible doesn’t just say that God does good things. It says that God is good.  It’s not just what he does; it’s who he is and who he is never changes.
David said I would have fainted (lost courage, lost hope, gave up) but I believed to see the honey (the goodness of God) in the land of the living.
“The land of the living” is this present world in which we live now.  In the hard places of life let us look for the honey (the goodness of God). Whenever we are in the hard places of life God does not bail out. He stays right there with us helping us walk it out.  That is His goodness. 
You have led me through the fire
In the darkest night
You are close like no other
I’ve known You as a Father
I’ve known You as a Friend
And I have lived in the goodness of God
                 “The Goodness of God” (song)
