… the goodness of God … – Psalm 27:13
I would have fainted if I hadn’t seen the goodness of God.
When tragedy strikes where do you go? When a negative situation happens to you, do you question God and ask Him “Why did you let this happen to me?”
The Bible says God is good and can only do good.
That every good and perfect gift comes from God.
That God only has good things in heaven and inside Himself.
There is no evil in Him.
He can not give you something He doesn’t have.
When God is upset with us He doesn’t try to borrow something evil from the devil to put on us.
Yes, everything evil and awful comes from Satan himself. He is the master mind of everything evil and corrupt.
I am sorry a horrible situation happened to you. You wreck your car, you didn’t pass the test, you lost a loved one to a terrible disease … but these things are not from God. This is not the way God works or acts toward the people He loves. Just as you would never give evil to your children, God would never do anything evil to us.
God is good and can only do good. It was the devil who stole your lunch and left you a note saying, “God did it.”
Our Dad, God, is a loving and giving Heavenly Father who can only do good.
Yes, we have all suffered tragedy. It was in the month of May (when all moms are celebrating Mother’s Day) when I had to plan a funeral for my two year old son. His name was Jamie and he was terminally ill. We spent a lot of time in the hospital fighting his sickness but it finally took his little life.
We cried and experience a lot of pain. I remember at my baby’s funeral my husband got up and spoke. He said I only have three words …
“God is good.”
Those words hit me hard. How could he say that? At that moment I wasn’t feeling God’s goodness in my life. But the truth is it doesn’t change the fact God.Is.Good.All.The.Time!
Those words branded me that day: God is good.
Those words changed me.
Every time I faced a hard problem I took hold of those words to get me through.
That truth brought me comfort and victory!
I challenge you to say those words to what are you facing:
A divorce? God is good.
A troubled child? God is good.
Anxiety? God is good.
Depression? God is good.
Say it over and over until it becomes your reality.
I promise you. If you will change your confession, it will change your life!
Please I want to hear from you. What struggle are you facing that you need God’s victory? Let us pray for you! I promise we can help. You do not have to face this difficulty alone.
