Goodness in this context is your good deeds and good deeds from others to you. This means, you acting well in your dealings with others and others dealing with you in a kind manner. Goodness is also a form of worship. When we do good towards others, we are exalting the Lord through our deeds. The devil fights goodness in all ways with evil because he does not want God's children to worship Him. We live in an evil world where evil is deeply rooted. As children of God, goodness can only be measured unto us from Heaven; the only place where goodness abide. Seeking goodness in this world is a dead end exercise. Many people truly want to engage in good acts but they fail because they rely on their own strength and the influence of evil spirits in the air. And before they know it, they end up making wrong decisions laced with evil.
A lot of people also find out that they never attract any goodness to their lives. The keep aligning wrong people and the wrong choices. There is a reason for that. Without the power of the Holy Spirit and the power of God in the lives of people, the evil in this world will suppress the goodness man originally intends to do. Don’t forget, the devil has strategically set up kingdoms around places of the earth. As a child of God, you need a greater power inside of you to be able to do any good or attract goodness to you. Remember, goodness is not of the devil. He seeks to use any available willing vessel or situation to transport evil. Goodness belongs to the Lord, and He is able to help us walk in goodness, act in goodness towards others by His Spirit.
There is no good in any man except they receive the anointing the Holy Spirit. Acts 10:38 tells us how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. This tells us that Jesus who we are to emulate was anointed by the Holy Spirit and with the power to carry out His assignment of goodness.
The best effort of man to do good will always fall short of God’s standard. People with the best intentions will still fall short of God’s divine intention for them without the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit in their lives. But when the anointing of the Holy Spirit come on any man, we are able to do good, discern good from evil, and accept what is good, and reject what is evil.
Lord, anoint me with your Holy Spirit and power that I may do good and accept only your goodness, in Jesus name.
