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 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 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. Yes, God cares for everyone and gives good gifts!


 ...I am the Lord who heals you. Exodus 15:26 (NKJV)

Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Psalm 103:3-4 (NKJV)

That your way may be known on earth, your saving health among all nations. Psalm 67:2 (AKJV)


I am reminded of my dad, Rev. J.T. Campbell, who pastored in many churches for over fifty years. When he and my mother came to our home for Thanksgiving dinner, he asked a grandchild to read Psalm 100 just before we enjoyed our meal.

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."

Let me encourage you to be a humble person and to daily express your gratitude to the Lord for his faithfulness. May He bless you!
