Does God Give Good Gifts? - By Pat Stanton


Does God give good things to His children? The Bible tells us God is a remarkable Father. He not only supplies the needs of His family, but also wants to satisfy their wants. Psalm 84:11 states, "No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly."

 

We are also taught in Psalm 37:4, God will give you the desires of your heart. "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."


The Bible is clear in teaching God wants us to have enough. He is our Shepherd and He says we do not have to be in need or lack (Psalm 23:1).

 

Psalm 34:8, "O, taste and see that the Lord is good:  blessed is the man that trusteth in Him!"

Vs. 9...for those who fear Him lack nothing. (ESV)


The Lord is the Good Shepherd. He is also Almighty God, and will do the miraculous to bring the help we need. We need to ask, believe, and to walk uprightly before the Lord. Romans 8:32b, "How shall he not with him, also freely give us all things?" 


He wants to meet our needs. He also wants us to be able to share our surplus of food and clothing with the poor and people around us who have needs.
