Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind! (Psalm 31:19)
God pours out His kindness on those who fear Him. His goodness never runs out. The “fear” written here is not the fear of uncertainty that a pandemic brings but the fear of drifting from God who is the place of safety (refuge). This “fear” drives you to God, not away from Him. That’s what David seems to be writing about here. It’s the fear of a child afraid to wander from their parents in a crowd and get lost, so they stay close to them holding their hands. It’s a healthy fear that led the hymn writer to pen these words, “Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it. Prone to leave the God I love.” So lean deeply into Christ and experience His presence (v20) as you wait for Him during these challenging times. Let Him lead you each day with His abundant goodness.
