I declare my life and my mouth are filled with God’s goodness. I am a selfless giver and will pour out the blessings of the Lord through my words and actions. My cup is overflowing and I will give a greater measure of Jesus away today!
GENEROSITY MAKES GOD SMILE
Did you know God smiles when He gives? He does. Why? Because the giving side of God shows up as goodness and looks like increase.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good; And our land will yield its increase. – Psalms 85:12
When God gives to you, His intention is to fill you up with goodness. He has a huge agenda to see goodness in every aspect of your life because He wants you to have so much, you can give a lot of that goodness away.
What You give them they gather in; You open Your hand, they are filled with good. – Psalms 104:28
You see, God fills you up so you can give to others. In that way, you are imitating your good Father. Your tiny ability to imitate God’s lavish goodness to those you love is not even on the same scale as God’s giving nature of goodness.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your father who is in Heaven give good things to those who ask Him? – Matthew 7:11
When Father God gives to you, even the measure is called good.
Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you. – Luke 6:38
God takes pleasure and actually enjoys giving to you. When He does, it is called “good pleasure.”
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” – Luke 12:32
God’s goodness always gives away life.
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.” – John 10:11
You see, God’s goodness, like His love, is always selfless. Always! So the thing you need to know about goodness is that wherever it shows up, it is always life-giving.
TODAY IS A GREAT DAY FOR GOODNESS TO SHOW UP WHEREVER YOU ARE. SHOW OTHERS THE LOVE OF GOD AND THAT OUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS GOOD!
