How great is His goodness

zech.9.17b

 

Among the delights of fall for me is the regathering of my bible study, a multi-generational group of women who have focused intently on the Old Testament for over a decade.

This week we dive into Zechariah, a book full of prophesy, and ever timely because Jesus commanded us to “watch and be ready” for His return, which many believe could be very soon. While continuing to read the overview this morning I marked these words: “How great is His goodness and how great His beauty!” (Zech 9:17)

It is not an overstatement to say that I love discovering treasures like this one in God’s Word. Being reminded that His goodness and beauty are real and great and even limitless is good for my soul. What is a treasure you’ve found recently?

  1. Barbara,
    I so agree with others that have read or are reading the Old Testament and comment on how they love these books. Our Bible study is in Isaiah and how to live a free life in Christ. Until this study, it never occurred to us that believed that we could still be held in chains by past mistakes, trials and worry. My favorite treasure is the 1st verse we were to memorize, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free, therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery”. Galatians 5:1 Thank you for posting God’s Word each week, as it give my heart something to look forward to. In Christ, Connie

  2. Yes, your blog has been a great encouragement to me also. My recent treasure is our Bible study group; we are in a long study of Revelations. I am humbled to learn more. Thank you Barbara for all you do.

  3. Barbara, thank you for sharing this beautiful hidden treasure in Zechariah. It is a precious reminder to me to focus on God’s beauty and goodness even among the trials and difficulties in life. You have encouraged me to look for those treasures as I read His Word.

  4. Barbara, I have learned to love the Old Testament. This month I started a study in the book of Daniel. Your emails always encourage me to continue in the faith. Thank you so much for taking the time to share and be vulnerable. Your difficulties, especially, have spoken to me more than you will ever know.

    1. Thanks Robin. I am honored you read my writings. I do love God’s word and bringing attention to what He teaches me. So grateful it is encouraging to you!
      Thanks for writing to say so. Barbara
