“Bless The LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless The LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits; who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who croweth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:1-5
“Something good is going to happen to you!” That’s what Oral Roberts used to say every week on his television broadcast. It was filled with faith when he said it, too, because that man had confidence in the love and the goodness of God.
Not everyone felt the same way he did, though. I met a preacher once who told me it made him mad when Brother Roberts said that. “Good things don’t happen to everyone,” he said. “What about the saint of God who prayed revival down on her town but spent her life in poverty? It would have been good for her to get some money..but that good thing never happened. So the saying isn’t always true.”
