Everyone... that's a pretty big crowd. I have trouble being good to some of the people I don't really like. I know, that's not a godly thing to say... but it's honest.
And here we read that, The Lord is good to everyone.
I wonder if "everyone" believes that?
Like the people who doubt there is a God.
Like the people who are angry at God.
Like the people that worship another god.
Like the people who are indifferent to God.
And still, no matter what they believe, the Lord is good to everyone. How grateful I am that the Most High God never changes. Not based on what we think or believe about Him, not based on our circumstance, nor our performance. We cannot place the frail and fickle human traits on God. He far exceeds our understanding, for He is simply good and can be no other way.
Does that mean He never gets angry?
Does that mean He does not allow trouble in our lives?
Does that mean He only showers us with butterflies and gumdrops?
No. His goodness actually proves it.
For like a good Judge, He will get angry over injustice.
And like a good Father, He knows we need discipline.
And as a good God, His love far exceeds our expectations of happiness.
I am ever grateful for the goodness of God.
Even when I don't fully understand it.
Especially when I can't fully earn it.
The Lord is good and upright;
therefore He shows sinners the way.
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
How happy is the man
who takes refuge in Him!
Give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good;
His faithful love endures forever.
How can I repay the Lord f
or all the good He has done for me?
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
