TOPIC: A Celebration of God’s Goodness
OPENING PRAYER: Help me dear Lord to meet with you as I meditate on your word in Jesus name
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: Psalm 34:1 ‐22
QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION
• Is there any promise for me to believe or hope for?
• What truth is God revealing to me in this passage?
This Psalm is the outpouring of a heart that has lived to experience the goodness of God. When was the last time you experienced God’s goodness? Observe how David, the ‘man after God’s own heart’ firmly decides to bless the Lord in every situation (v.1). David has been facing danger with his enemies threatening his life and pursuing him.
Many of us regularly face numerous dangers especially those living in countries at war or where persecution is fierce. May we find encouragement in v.4 like David, who was delivered from his enemies each time he cried out to God (cf. Psalm 145:18).
What lessons can we learn from David’s declarations in vs.7‐10? We must understand that the way to life, also repeatedly taught in Proverbs, is to have ”the fear of the Lord’’ which is the beginning of wisdom.
David compares the righteous with the wicked in vs.15‐21. Note the things that the righteous will receive as they trust and fear the Lord. Compare this with the consequences of doing evil (vs.16, 21).
Action: Humbly seek the Lord today and expect Him to reward you with His loving care and protection!

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
