God’s Goodness—Inside Out

December 7th, 2020

RG AUDIO 120720


Lamentations 3:10-24

One of the timeless truths we learn through scripture is that God is a God of self-revelation. He longs to make himself known to His people. We never have to guess at who God is, how He feels about us, or what He wants in our lives. He makes himself manifest through His actions in the world, His witness in our hearts, and His truth revealed in His Word.

Psalm 103 celebrates the character that God has revealed to His people—compassion and love. The psalmist recognizes some of the benefits of serving the Lord: forgiveness, transformation, healing, and contentment. God is more than a distant deity. God is the tangible presence of goodness, active throughout history and into the present circumstances of the psalmist’s life.

The goodness of God is more than just material blessing for the psalmist, though, it is also manifest in justice delivered for the voiceless of society. The psalmist’s eyes are open to see this work for what it is—God’s compassion made clear.
