Summary: Taste and know the goodness of the Lord
Greetings and blessings in the name of Jesus Christ,
How wonderful it is to come together under the banner of the name of Jesus
Christ. Today while I was praying the Lord laid it upon my heart to begin
writing this message to you. It is not by power or might that this message
is brought but rather by the work of the Spirit within me so that through
me-He may channel His grace and mercy so as to equip you to serve Him.
Exodus 33:19, "And He said, "I Myself will make all My goodness pass
before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will
be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I
will show compassion."
Psalm 23:6, "Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the
days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
Psalm 25:7, "Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your lovingkindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O
Psalm 27:13, "I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would
see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living."
Isaiah 63:7, "I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the LORD,
the praises of the LORD, According to all that the LORD has granted us,
And the great goodness toward the house of Israel, Which He has granted
them according to His compassion And according to the abundance of His
Jer 31:4, ""I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, And My

their God and David their king; and they will come trembling to the LORD

Jer 31:12, "Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion,
Streaming to the goodness of the LORD-- For wheat and new wine and oil,

I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, And My people shall
be satisfied with My goodness, says the LORD."
The Lord is deeply troubled by many things that are going on
in our culture and world today. He is troubled by the sick,
the hurting and the broken going untended to. He is troubled
by the many ministers who go around burning themselves out. We
are a people addicted to the religious aspects of what a life
with God may look like, but without the sacrifice of actually
growing in God. This is a deeply troubling aspect and fact of
the modern Christianity today. In Christianity it is praised
to work overtime with study but not prized to spend time in
reflection. As one who is engaged in the task of Pastoring the
flock of God it is also my responsible to the people who call
me Pastor to take care of myself. One of the key aspects where
Israel fell into disobedience was when their obedience became
compartmentalized. For example when David sinned it was not
because he did not love God but rather it was out of lust.
Even though King David was a great man of God he still had
issues. It is still the same for us today. Even though we may
think we have nothing going on-there is always some area of
weakness in our lives. We are all human beings on Planet Earth
and nobody is perfect in this journey towards growing in
Christ. We all need each other Praise God for that! God made
us one for another to use our gifts by His grace and power. He
did not call the mighty of this world, but those of lowly
stature He calls and equips to serve Him in power. The god of
this world may rage against the powers that be, but there is
but One King, and that is Jesus the Christ. He is forever and
ever while the temporary power of satan may seemingly be of
some supremacy, but for not the Lord is still the King of
Kings and the Lord’s of Lord
How I give praise unto the Father for His great work within my own life
and the lives of those whom He allows me to minister unto. Very often
