The Good God // The Weekend Brew
Do you believe that God is always good?
Good: virtuous, righteous, upright, moral, blameless, honorable, respectable, noble, trustworthy, praiseworthy.
When we look around, listen to the news, interact with people near and dear to us who are suffering, it’s often hard to comprehend that there is a good, kind, just and loving God who cares deeply for mankind. There is pain, sadness, disappointment and despair in this world. But if we dwell too long on the negative, our view of a good and just God will become cloudy and we can begin to question who He is.
So let’s take a look at the goodness of God in His Word, shall we?
God is GOOD and He is good to ALL mankind.
“The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made” (Psalm 145:9)
Everything that God created is GOOD. We must look for the good in all things.
“For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving” (1 Timothy 4:4)
God gives GOOD gifts to His children. That’s you and me!
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows” (James 1:17)
There is GOOD to be found even in hard circumstances.
“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” (Romans 8:28)

“Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him” (Psalm 34:8)
Beloved, are you struggling to see the goodness of God in your circumstances today? Reflect on these promises above and know that God is good and just and His mercy endures forever.
