“I will make with them an everlasting covenant that I will not turn away from doing good to them . . . . I will rejoice in doing good to them.” (Jeremiah 32:40–41).
Can you think of any fact more encouraging than that God rejoices to do you good? He doesn’t begrudgingly fulfill his promise (Romans 8:28). It is his joy to do you good. And not just sometimes. Always! “I will not turn away from doing good to them.” But sometimes our situation is so hard to bear we just can’t muster any joy.
Remember Abraham: “In hope he believed against hope” (Romans 4:18). God has always been faithful. O how glad I am that the thing that makes Almighty God happiest is doing good for you and me!
