At our church we have a well known phrase that we say frequently, “God is good, all the time…And all the time God is good.” The problem is, often times we get so caught up in the busyness and chaos of life that we forget just how good our God truly is. His goodness is always present, and it’s something that we can rely on in every season of life.
Psalm 34:8 says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” This verse reminds us that God’s goodness is not just something we talk about or read about, it’s something we can experience for ourselves. When we turn to Him, we find that He is good, and that His goodness is a source of blessing and hope in our lives.
Another verse that speaks to God’s goodness is Romans 8:28. It says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” This verse reminds us that even in the midst of difficult situations, God is working for our good. His goodness is not just limited to the good times, but it extends to every aspect of our lives. The good, the bad, and even the ugly.
James 1:17 says, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” This verse reminds us that everything good in our lives comes from God. He is the source of all goodness, and His gifts to us are good and perfect.
Today, let’s take a moment to reflect on the goodness of God. Let’s remember that He is always with us, working for our good and blessing us with His perfect gifts. Let’s take refuge in Him and experience His goodness for ourselves. And let’s give thanks to Him for His unwavering goodness and love.
