For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
Here is the reason why one day in His courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. He is good. His courts are good. There is no better place that one can exist. He is a provider and a protector.
But do you really believe that? Do you really believe that God is good? Do you believe the statement, "no good thing does he withhold."
