Good Is Good

God is good All the time. God is never not Good. The very Character of God is Good. So many times we hear people say “God is good” when they get a prayer answered the way they want it to be answered. This is awesome and we should rejoice with them and also testify to God and His goodness.

Friends, what happens when we do not get the answer we were expecting or hoping for? Is God any less good? Do our circumstances, pain, suffering, trials and tribulations change the Character and Nature of God? Ask yourself what Job said when he was going through the midst of a fiery trial.

Psalm 100:5 says: “For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.”
This isn’t a one time promise of long ago but a long ago promise for ALL time. Remember brothers and sisters, God NEVER changes.
Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. “

Psalm 31:19 “Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!”

I think it prudent to ask yourself (preaching to myself as well), one last thing. What are we telling the world; the unbelievers who are watching and listening very intently to everything we do or speak, when we as believers say “God is good!” and only do so when we get our way? Are we portraying a God who is only good some of the time?
