Surely God is good. – Psalm 73:1
God is good! But is someone trying to convince you He isn’t? That He doesn’t have your best interest in mind? That He’s somehow holding out on you?
We’re never more vulnerable to this temptation than when our hearts are broken, when we cry out to God only to have Him remain silent. Or when we cry out to Him and experience a bad situation getting worse.
God is not deaf or indifferent, mean or unable to act.
God cannot be less than Himself. And God is good. And active. And faithful. And He cares.
God loves you! Second Peter 1:3 says,
His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.
When you can’t understand what He is doing or why He is not doing something, put your faith in who the Bible reveals Him to be. Answer His call to know Him as He is. And you will experience peace. Because God is good!
