“Good Days”

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. —Psalms 118:24

Don’t you enjoy those days when everything is fine and there are no problems?  We’re healthy and free of pain. The blue bird of blessing is singing the song of prosperity.  Nothing is going wrong, and everything is good!

But there is a subtle danger to misinterpret those “care-free” days. We may begin to think God is blessing us because we are living right—Things are going well, because we are doing well.  We think everything is good because we are doing good.  This attitude is wrong.  We need to recognize God’s blessings are due to God’s goodness, not our goodness (James 1:17; Eccl. 2:24).

It is during those “good days” we seem to forget it is only by God’s mercies that we are not consumed (Lam. 3:22). God warned Israel not to forget Him during the “good times” (read Dt. 8:10-17).

Are things going well for you right now? Why not pause right now and thank God for His goodness in your life?  Pray: “God, I recognize that I’m not worthy of the least of Your blessings, yet You’ve blessed me more than I deserve. Thank You Lord, for Your manifold goodness and grace to me. Amen!”
