The accusation came out of nowhere. Its bite was vicious. Its target was my heart. I recoiled at the thought of having offended someone with my words, with my lessons learned from the hand of God. Friends rallied around me. Emails lit up my inbox.

And the peace of God dwelt richly within me.

In Psalm 31, David said of the Lord, “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!

“You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man: You shall keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues” (verses 19 & 20).

How GREAT is God’s goodness. Abundant. Significant. Intentional.

Dear One, isn’t it good to know our precious Father in Heaven not only extends goodness to those who love Him, He also stores it up? He lays it up in abundance so that when the fiery darts of the enemy assail us, His goodness is already in place.

His goodness rights all wrongs.
His goodness shelters His child.
His goodness draws us to His side.

And the fruit of His goodness is the peace that passes all understanding.

Father, thank You for Your goodness. Open the eyes of our hearts to understand the depth of Your goodness towards Your children. You are an amazing, faithful God. We love You, Lord.
