The Lord Provides for You From His Goodness

Did you know that God’s goodness is tangible? True story! Read on; this will encourage you like crazy!

The Lord has had me reading Psalm 68 over and over lately. As I was reading it today, Holy Spirit highlighted this one phrase to me:

”You, O God, provided from Your goodness for the poor” (Psalm 68:10b).

As I meditated on that phrase, the Lord gave me a mental picture of what it means.

In my mind’s eye, I saw Papa God reaching into His bosom and drawing out a handful of His goodness. “Goodness” was what He was made of, and it was a tangible substance.

(To imagine this with our human thoughts, you could think of God as being filled with sugar cookies, doughnuts, or something similar. Of course that’s only a limited, human comparison, but imagining that helps me grasp the concept of “goodness” a bit better.) 🙂

So in my mind’s eye, I watched Father God pull a handful of His goodness out of His bosom. Then He stretched it out toward the people who stood in front of Him.

As He stretched out His hand toward the people, the goodness in His hand changed formats. It became things that the people needed: money, food, clothing, and more. It became anything necessary for them to live in our earthly environment.

That vision really moved me, because I suddenly understood what it meant when David wrote that God provided “from His goodness” for the poor.

Goodness is not only something God has. It is something God IS.

So when He provides for us, He is reaching into Himself and depositing part of His substance into our bosom.

That job He just gave you is His substance, manifest.

That baby He is giving you right now is His substance, manifest.

The money He sent you last night to pay your bills with is His substance, manifest.

And His substance—this particular aspect of it, anyway—is GOODNESS.

So what do you need from God?

Do you need forgiveness? He’ll provide it if you ask—out of His goodness!

Do you need money? He’ll provide it if you ask—out of His goodness!

Do you need friends and other relationships? He’ll provide them if you ask—out of His goodness!

He provides for us out of His goodness. He literally reaches into Himself and pulls out His goodness, and that goodness translates into whatever tangible thing we need in His hand.

Beloved, I pray this word will build your faith.

Go ahead and believe God for everything you need AND desire. Ask Him for those things. Seek and knock … for everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. And to those who knock, the door shall be opened.

He provides FROM HIS GOODNESS for the poor.

  1. Hi Jamie,yes this resonates particularly this week!. I have gone through the worst times in the past few years, and my sister is losing her faith. She felt that my faith wasnt being rewarded, and I have also come to question the things I have been faith filled for, and yet not seen yet. I need a job , as I am not working right now, and it seems fruitless search. I have a mortgage to pay in a fe weeks, and no money. That is where I am placing my NEED, and prayer. My want…this also resonated, as even though I am in my current nightmare, I have such a desire for a want, beacuse it will knock me over with joy if I receive it. So going to be bold and ask..Its good to be reminded of Gods goodness, and I long, and so desperately need it in my life right now. I am battle weary..:)

    1. I will pray for you Frances. I will pray so that God fills you with the favor you need which reflects your enduring faith. Be blessed inside out. God will provide. God bless you
