Scripture Of The Day:  1 Chronicles 16:34 (NKJV)

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.  – 1 Chronicles 16:34 (NKJV)

He Is Good Because He IS Good

Greetings Christlike Ministries Family,

Today is going to be a busy day for us as I have two daily devotionals to write, and it’s finally time for us to get into Christlike Ministries NWA’s first teaching series of 2015.  So, there’s going to be a lot of writing and posting today.  I know, it’s also Super Bowl Sunday, but how many of you know that the greatest Super Bowl every played didn’t take place on a football field…it took place on the Cross. So, I am glad to be in the house on this grey, rainy day sitting in front of this computer penning messages inspired and breathed by the Holy Ghost.

Today…I even have a worship song to go along with today’s devotional…and as I was writing it all I could here in my spirit are the words: “Lord You are good and Your mercy endureth forever”, and while most people have their favorite version of this song mine was done by John Tesh.

 

Here is the Christlike Ministries NWA Daily Devotional for Saturday January 31, 2015, and our Scripture of the Day as well.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. – 1 Chronicles 16:34 (NKJV)

We already talked about this a little bit the other day, and it never fails that God always confirms what we talk about.  I said the other day that God isn’t good because He does good…but that God is good because He IS good.

This may be one of the shortest devotional messages I pen, but there really isn’t much of a need for a lengthy post.  The truth is really quite simple, and yet it’s really quite revealing.

God isn’t good because He does good; God is good because He IS good.

Listen, for God not to be good would go completely against who He is, and what His nature and character are.  Sure, God IS just, God IS merciful, God IS full of grace and truth, God IS holy, God IS good, and we all know that God IS love.

These things I just listed God isn’t because He does something to earn that title, but He does them because that is Who and What He IS.  So, when you say that God is good all that time, and all the time God IS good…don’t just say it because it’s the cool and godly thing to say…but that God really is good all the time because God really IS good.

Let’s Pray:

Lord You are good and Your mercy endures forever. We thank You that You are good all the time, and all the time You are good. We thank You for how good You are to us. In Jesus name. Amen

In Closing:

For the Lord, He is good and His mercy endures forever.  These words echo through my mind often, and some times they even help me write.

Have a blessed day in the Lord and thanks for your patience. I’m trying to keep these as daily as possible, and some times it’s not possible.  Thank the Lord for the ability to back date these, though.

Blessings & Grace;

Pastor B
