Re-Centering in God’s Word


God’s Pure Goodness



Introduction: The texts below are inspired by the Psalms, Exodus 33-34 and Isaiah 66. Through faith and through the Spirit, hear God speaking directly to you. 


Directions: If a glimpse of God’s pure goodness strikes you, Stop!  Be still and listen!  God is speaking to you. Be refreshed.  

  

Alternatively, press on to the end, taking note of how God is implanting knowledge of who God truly is in your mind and heart.  


In either scenario, humbly resolve to reflect God’s goodness 24/7 today.  After all, did God not create you in the image of God, in the image of pure goodness?  Therefore, be your true self as redeemed by Christ and walk in the ways of the the new creation at work in you, in the ways of pure goodness, returning good for evil just as your heavenly father does.





Prayer: O Holy Spirit, inner coach, help me to ponder and bask in Abba’s pure goodness.  Help me to believe without wavering that God truly is who God says God is in the Scriptures.  Although powers are different, inspire me to believe that you created me to have a mind full of pure goodness, like unto the mind of Christ.  I know this is truth because Jesus commands me: Be boundless in goodness because your heavenly Father’s goodness is boundless!  [Mt 5:48]
