Through it all, God is good…

“Psalms 100:5/For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”

God is good. That’s just a part of His character. He can’t help but to be good. God’s goodness doesn’t change from day to day and it isn’t based upon anything that we as people do. God is good regardless of whatever else is happening. Nothing can influence ho good God is going to be, it’s just inherent in His being. It’s one of the reasons you hear so many people saying, “when I think of the goodness of Jesus…” Even if we didn’t get to everything that He’s done for us, His goodness is enough for our souls to worship Him. Hard times come all the time. We can’t avoid them and we can’t always control the nature of the struggle, however, we can control our reaction to it. God never changed. He expresses very clearly in Malachi 3:6 that He is God and that He doesn’t change…that’s why you’re not consumed. God is so good that He can take any and everything that happens around you and make it work out for your good. Because of this goodness, we ought to be willing to praise God at all times, regardless of how bad the situation and circumstances around us may be…He’s still good.

Psalm 135:3/Praise the Lord; for the Lord is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.”
