“For the Lord is good; His loving kindness is everlasting. And His faithfulness to all generations” – Psalms 100:5 (NIV)
The goodness of the Lord is one thing one needs to rely on especially when times are uncertain. This happened exactly during the sojourn of the children of Israel as they traversed through the desert from Egypt on to the promise land.
Unfortunately, as we see through many episodes in the Book of Exodus, with their faith under taste, the way seemingly unclear, it was common to let doubt take the better hold of many. So often they rebelled and took to worshiping other gods, like they did when they forced Aaron to make a golden calf to worship instead of the Almighty God who had brought them thus far. Challenged late by Moses, as to why, Aaron explained, “You know how prone these people are so evil. They said to me, “Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us out of Egypt we don’t know what has happened to him” ( Exodus 32:22-23).
This didn’t please the Lord God for which they would pay a high price.
In times as these when the economy is under hit from lockdown and incomes strained may we look up to the goodness of the Lord to sustain us through. And He certainly will.
Prayer for today: Lord father in heaven today I pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth that through these challenging times my faith in you may stand undiminished.
