Topic: The Good Things in Life
Knowing and pursuing God gives us our best life.

Dr Charles Stanley Devotional October 18, 2022

Scripture: Psalm 34:1-22

How do we achieve the good life? Well, it depends on what you pursue and what you consider “good.” The world defines good things as items and experiences that make us happy. But from the Lord’s perspective, the good things in life are those that fit into His purpose and plan for us.

God’s will could include material prosperity, health, and opportunities, but He also considers periods of trouble, need, and suffering as valuable. The Lord prioritizes our spiritual well-being over physical or material comfort and ease.

Our Father wants us to seek Him rather than the treasures and pleasures of this life. If we do this, He promises we’ll “not lack any good thing” (Ps. 34:10). We’re told to ask the Lord to meet our needs, but we should also come to Him with an open heart that seeks to know and love Him more.

God Himself is the highest good we could possibly seek. Everything that He gives, whether much or little, is a good and perfect gift from Him (James 1:17). When our pursuit is the Lord rather than the things of this world, we’ll be content with whatever we have (Psalm 37:4).

Bible in One Year: Mark 13-14
