Mid-Cape Gathering preparation: Day 6
 

 *"I am still confident in this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the
land of the living .Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for
the Lord." *Psalm 27:13-14

In a *Dennis the menace *cartoon, Dennis and his friends were walking out of
Mrs. Wilson's house with cookies in both hands. Dennis's friend wondered
what they had done to deserve the cookies. Dennis explained, " Mrs. Wilson
doesn't give us cookies because we are nice. We get cookies because Mrs.
Wilson is nice." It is God's goodness, not ours, that is the basis for
blessing.

Understanding this frees us to place our confidence and trust in God Himself
instead of being forced to rely upon our own righteousness or upon whatever
faith we can muster.

PRAYER STARTER:

*Father God, You are good all the time! Our of Your goodness You have
blessed my life abundantly. I place my trust and confidence in Your
goodness, and I commit to living my life in faithfulness to You.*

WE CANNOT TWIST GOD'S ARM OR THROW A TEMPER TANTRUM TO MAKE HIM GIVE US WHAT
WE WANT. GOD IS MOTIVATED BY HIS OWN LOVE AND GOODNESS TOWARDS US.
