Fitness to receive the good we are asking for

Certainly the problem isn't that there is not enough good. More good than we have ever conceived of is at hand, because God is real. He exists, and He is good. Our need is really to find the way to open our eyes more fully to this infinite and present good.

The Psalmist shares with us that reassuring sense of God's presence. "How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God!" he writes, "therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures." Ps. 36:7, 8.
