Goodness: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry


Jeremiah 31:14, “’And I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness,’ declares the Lord.”

Shall be satisfied.

We are not in a culture that is easily satisfied. “That’s not good enough” is a common complaint. How often does our interpretation of goodness limit our version of the Lord’s goodness?

Even when we believe and know His presence we too often battle with fretfulness and worry.

When Job struggled with all his losses his questions and arguments became his daily focus. But when he recognized God’s actual presence with him all those concerns dissolved. They were no longer relevant. They just didn’t matter any more. 

Only when we can allow our hearts and soul to be cleansed from our limited expectations can we be open to receive His true goodness wholly. Not by our definition of it but by His loving reality.

Lord, please show each of us how we may become satisfied with Your goodness in all situations.

Your thoughts,
