‘The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works” (Psalm 145:9).
Sometimes, because of the things that occur in this world, we do not see The Lord being good to all, but we should.
Even in the darkest moments in some of our lives, we should be able to see The Lord’s goodness as a pinpoint of light–no matter what happens.
As tragic as it is to see lives lost–from missing airplanes, to sinking ferries, to raging storms and those dying from illness and violence–there is yet hope for those who remain–that pinpoint of light.
Sometimes, it is difficult to focus on a pinpoint of light when darkness surrounds us, but if we focus on how good He is and how He is always with us, we can overcome--the depths and ravages of the darkness and rise to see the light and make this world a better place. We must always be able to see the good and His mercies in all things–no matter how dark things appear, we have to know that there is a light that will outshine all the darkness, when we focus on Him.
We have to know–that He is not a respecter of persons and that His Word applies to all who receive Him and acknowledge Him for who He is–the Bright Morning Star, the Rose of Sharon, The Great I Am, The God who fulfills all His promises, Our Healer and Protector and there is nothing too hard for Him to accomplish through us, no matter what.
Father, in the name of Jesus, help us to focus on the Light and not the darkness. Help us to become the arms and hearts of compassion seeing need and fulfilling whatever needs to be done for those who are hurting and devastated by things out of their control. Help us to be selfless in this time of need and remain prayerful and diligent in accomplishing all You on our hearts to do, to Your glory.
