“I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence…” [Exodus 33:19]
Life begins when dawn breaks and light reveals the goodness of God—not just some of God’s goodness is promised but ALL God’s goodness. That’s His moral goodness—all that is righteous, holy and merciful. His goodness is seen in the created natural order of the things of a life. Though imperfect, they are perfected within the cyclic boundaries of His great love. Like the marriage ring, the covenant of God is the symbol of His unbreakable, unlimited eternal love. It is in this place that the song of the redeemed becomes a heavenly harmony.
Turning: “In that day I will praise you O Lord—Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me.”
Trusting: “Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.”
Thanksgiving: “Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.”
Testifying: “Sing to the Lord for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”
Do you get it? Turn—trust—thank—testify. Live inside the circle of His moral goodness and know the fullness of His great love for you today.
