Meditate on the Goodness of God

I really needed this tonight and thought maybe you might need to hear it too.

Today I’m reading day 225 of Parenting by Design Daily Devotional: MEDITATING ON GOD.

We face many challenges in parenting and are sometimes overcome with fear and doubt. In these times, we have a choice to indulge those fears or to meditate on the promises of God. Satan uses worry and fear to steal our God-given peace. It is an act of obedience to reject the lies of Satan and concentrate on God’s love and sovereignty. We do not know the plans God has for our lives or the lives of our children. Our finite minds may have trouble understanding His eternal purposes. Our peace, however, comes in knowing that He is a God who is loving, wise, and in control. This verse calls us to concentrate on the attributes of God.

Instead of indulging your fears, choose to meditate on the goodness of God.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:8 NIV)
