god is good


God wants His children and, particularly, the shepherd leaders influencing His sheep, to grow spiritually ... and that growth often requires a rocky road and a narrow, steep path with unexpected twists and turns.

Just as a plant needs sunlight, the proper temperature, moisture, air, and nutrients to thrive, we need the same as under-shepherds of our Savior. We need the Son, the Light of the World, along with the air He gives us to breath and the nutrients we find in the milk and the meat of His Word, to shepherd well.

The Lord’s Day

We have much to learn from the Puritans. Their “strength of character and life lay in prayer and meditation,” as Arthur Bennett, editor of The Valley of Vision, has noted. These men and women of God clearly regarded these practices of utmost importance, believing that living prayer is the characteristic of genuine spirituality.

God Is Good

Have you ever given consideration to when you actually do think God is good? Is it when He’s answered your prayer request with a “yes”? Is it when you’ve prayed the same prayer for years, with seemingly no result? God is good, but He’s not just good when the sheep in our lives are listening and following, when life is going our way, and when situations are easy. He’s also good even when – and maybe especially when – we’re in the midst of pain, in the middle of heartbreak, and facing great disappointment.
