How Good is God?
Think: "God is as good as He was when things were easy and He is as good as He is now when things are extremely difficult."
God is good. He is supremely good. He is consistently good. He is as good as He was when things were easy and He is as good now when things are extremely difficult. The intensity of His goodness only changes as how I deem it to be. But, regardless of how good I feel He is, He is and He exhibits the exact same goodness as He was and has done in the past, today, and in the future.
Think: "We lose sight of His goodness when we make it our pursuit to live our lives for here and now instead of for eternity."
There are endless ways we can perceive the intensity of His goodness. At times we lose sight of how much He loves us and of how much He will never fail to be good in our lives. We lose sight when we dwell on the brokenness, when we set our hearts on this world, when we make it our pursuit to live our lives for here and now instead of for eternity to come. We lose sight of His love and goodness when we forget that while God is restoring His Kingdom on earth, the ultimate fulfillment will come at a later time, not now.
There's something assuring about the sunrise. It feeds hope, it states newness. Scriptures say, "He makes His sun rise on both the evil and the good." God is not a withholding God. The sun shines on all. Even on our worst days, the sun will always shine for you and me.
Think: Unexpected help and blessings validate His goodness.
Have you experienced unexpected help from someone when you never told anybody about your need? Have you received something from someone you never expected would give you something? Did some random stranger assist you and vanished into thin air? Did you feel a prompting inside that helped you avoid a dangerous situation? The Bible says we sometimes meet angels and we are unaware of it. In Psalm 32:8 God says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you." God sends favor upon favor, help upon help. He is so good.
