Look for the Good
By: Denise N. Fyffe
As Christians, we are called to look for the good in all things, and to be grateful for the blessings that we have in our lives. Even when we are facing challenges or difficult circumstances, there is always something to be thankful for, and there is always a reason to hope. In this article, we will explore the theme of looking for good blessings, and how it can encourage and inspire us as we start a new week.
One of the most powerful verses on the subject of looking for the good is found in Romans 8:28, which says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” This verse reminds us that even in the midst of difficult circumstances, God is at work, bringing good out of every situation.
Another encouraging Bible verse is found in Psalm 34:8, which says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” This verse reminds us that when we focus on the goodness of God, we are blessed, and we find refuge and strength in him.
We can also turn to the New Testament for reminders of the blessings that come from looking for the good. In Philippians 4:8, we read, “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.” This verse reminds us that when we focus on the good, we are able to experience joy and peace in our lives.
As we look for the good blessings in our lives, we can also take time to express gratitude for all that God has done for us. In Psalm 106:1, we read, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” This verse reminds us of the unending nature of God’s love and goodness, and how it is something to be celebrated and cherished.
As we start a new week, let us remember to look for the good blessings in our lives. Let us take time to reflect on the goodness of God, to express gratitude for his love and compassion, and to focus on the blessings that we have been given. May we be encouraged and inspired by the goodness of God, and may it give us the strength and courage we need to face the challenges of the week ahead.
