Psalm 31:19 NKJV
Oh, how great is Your goodness, Which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust in You In the presence of the sons of men!
For those of us who reverence God and have put our trust in Him, we have experienced His goodness. If we have been serving the Lord for a while, surely we can agree with the psalmist who said God’s goodness is great. When we observe how He gives wicked people time to repent, we should realize how great His goodness is. After the many times we did not do what we should have done, the fact that we are still here illustrates His goodness. When we think about His patience with us, His forgiveness for us when we missed the mark so many times, His kindness toward us in many ways, it should make us want to say the same thing we see in Psalm 31:19 – “Oh, how great is Your goodness!”
