The Bible tells us He has prepared and stored up goodness just waiting to bestow it upon those who love him. That statement brings to mind a grandmother who shops all year long for Christmas gifts and has them hidden away all over the house. She cannot wait to wrap them up and present them to her beloved family. She has been mindful all year of each child and grandchild. She knows them. She knows the things they enjoy, their hobbies, their sizes and favorite colors. It is her delight to spend her money on them. That’s how God is.

And [his master] made him supervisor over his house and he put all that he had in his charge. From the time that he made him supervisor in his house and over all that he had, the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the Lord’s blessing was on all that he had in the house and in the field.

For You meet him with the blessings of goodness;
You set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
He asked life from You, and You gave it to him—
Length of days forever and ever.

You have made him exceedingly glad with Your presence.
For the king trusts in the Lord,
And through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.
