There is a great difference between knowing God is good, and actually experiencing His goodness for yourself!
These past few days we experienced His goodness through His provision! He just opened His hand to the people and children of our congregation!
When you experience His goodness in such a tangible manner, you really come to know who He really is… that He wants to provide for you; He wants to give you your heart desire; and the best of all? He smiles when you are happy!
As we gave out gifts and food to our children and teenagers, it was as if I could see the Father smiling! He was happy because they were happy!
Seize life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart. Oh yes - God takes pleasure in your pleasure!
His greatest pleasure is our pleasure! Our greatest pleasure… not necessary to receive something from Him, but to experience His goodness and coming to know who He is!
May your greatest pleasure in life be to know who He is!
