In Psalm 107 the psalmist writes that the Lord “satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things” (v. 9). He does not simply fill us, He fills us with good things.
A lovely example of how God wants to give us good things and experiences is found in 2 Chronicles. Josiah, who was Hezekiah’s great-great-grandson, started to rebuild buildings the previous kings of Judah had allowed to fall into ruin.
There were many men working on this project, and as they laboured, “the Levites who were skilled musicians played background music while the work progressed” (2 Chronicles 34:12).
This is so wonderful—God cared so much about them He
even provided background music for the labourers!
