Pain for Good

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Psalm 118:1-29

The opening verse of Psalm 118 issues the command to "give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!" As part of the psalmist's giving thanks, he recalls the "deeds of the Lord" which interestingly include his being severely disciplined. As I look back over my life, I can clearly see how God has used discipline to teach and grow me spiritually. Those experiences were painful, but good came from each of them. So like the psalmist, I can proclaim "You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God; I will extol you. Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!" (vs. 28-29).

Take a few minutes to recall how God has taught and grown you spiritually. Then follow the lead of the psalmist and tell God thank you for his steadfast love in all situations. Tami

God has taught me that being in the Word daily is absolutely necessary to spiritual vitality. Through my struggles, He's never left my side.

His mercy truly endures forever. Absolutely nothing, including our pain, heartache, heartbreak is wasted in Our Father's economy. He will turn it for the good and use even hardships for our good and His glory. Romans 8:28

Even now, He is bringing me through something I never thought I could endure. God's steadfast love is enduring forever!
