One morning recently, I awoke feeling a bit low and disappointed about circumstances in my life. The night before I had prayed earnestly for God to give me gospel joy in spite of life’s disappointments. And answer that prayer, he did.

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Psalm 84:11
Reading the chapter with my kids was the answer to prayer that I needed. For it reminded me of this truth, “Since God gave the very best already, His most precious Son, He will give His children everything that is good for them. He will not withhold even one little thing. If there is something God does not give to a believer in Jesus, it is because that things is not good for him or is not right for him at that time.” (from God’s Promises by Sally Michael)
