There are two forces in the universe that exceed all other powers... God's goodness and love! When Jesus wanted to reach the toughened heart of Peter, Jesus didn't preach hell fire and damnation. He said to Peter, "Cast the net on the other side...". Peter did and an incredible catch resulted so that the nets began to break. Peter fell to his knees and said, "depart from me, for I am a sinful man." The way to reach a hardened fisherman is to give him a big catch. God catches us with His goodness... if we see it. Satan confuses us with blame, doubt, discouragement and defeat. But God reaches out His hand of love and goodness and picks us up with the remembrance of His faithfulness in our lives. Stop and look! "Remember the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living" said the prophet of old. Stop today and meditate on how good God has been to you!
