God is Good!
God is good
He is. And after years of living with the COVID-19 pandemic, God's people should even be more convinced about this truth.
Bitterness, resentment, and misjudging God are all the wrong ways that people can deal with hardships and pain.
Rather, realising He is good and not evil. Remembering that He is forever good and there is nothing evil in Him. Understanding that whatever we can't comprehend, God remains good.
God is good. He is our very strength and refuge in times of trouble. (Nahum 1:7)
We experience how true this Scripture verse is whenever we choose to run to Him and trust Him instead of running away and rebelling because of our unpleasant situations.
How many times has Christ shown up in the middle of our difficulties? Think about it.
When you accomplish something you didn't think you ever could. When you survive through something that was impossible for you to overcome on your own? That's Philippians 4:13. That is Christ showing up and enabling you, carrying you through it.
God is good to all at all times. He is forever good. (Psalm 145:9, 1 Chronicles 16:34)
He is good to everyone. He is good to people you don't like. He is good to the evil and despicable. And most importantly, He is good to you at your best and remains good to you at your worst.
To think that we deserve His goodness is foolish. To think that we are entitled to good things because we are good and work hard is childish. It is God who gives us the very strength and resources to accomplish anything in this life.
We achieve because it is God who makes us achievers. His creation is forever nothing without Him. And to question, doubt, and scold our Creator doesn't really make sense. That's why we should humbly ask for His revelation when we don't understand things.
We ought to trust and seek His enlightenment when we're in the dark. Because God will bring things to light in time. And even if He doesn't, we know that He works everything for our ultimate good. (Romans 8:28.)
He is a good Father.
God wants us to be happy and blessed. He wants spiritual prosperity for us. And He wants us to be happy and fulfilled in this life. He has given us everything we need to live a godly life. (2 Peter 1:3)
And we know God wants us to live godly lives because that's where every blessing lies.
As we begin to know, understand, and trust God more and more, we find the right path, the right passion, and the right pursuits. We realise what the wiser and more profitable investments are.
We discern where we should put more of our time, money, and efforts in. We also rediscover that happiness in life is not sustained by materialism and achievements.
We learn to pursue financial gain and accomplishments to find happiness and fulfillment in life. But ultimately, we prove that in becoming intimate with God and learning contentment in life, we find lasting joy and utmost fulfillment in this life.
Taste and See that the Lord is Good!
Psalm 34:8 invites us to taste and see that the Lord is good. Experience for ourselves His goodness and prove that He is indeed good. Trust Him and experience that the one who trusts the Father experiences a blessed life.
