Constantly believe in the goodness of God

Daily Thought

Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

Childlike faithOne of the keys I have discovered in my walk of faith that has helped me is to constantly believe in the goodness of God. The truth is that God is good all the time and all the time God is good. He knows your every need and He causes all things to work together for our good.
I have two young daughters. They are the joy and delight of my life. I endeavor to provide for them in every way I can. If however my daughter was to suddenly start worrying about where she would get her next meal from, or how she will afford the clothes she may need, or where the money would come from for her school fees, it would distress me.
Good parents will sacrifice to make sure their children are fed, clothed and educated. I know some parents who will hold down two jobs just to make sure their kids are provided for.
And yet, as children of God, I wonder if it does not distress God when we doubt His goodness in our lives and make our own plans in order to survive? Celebrate God’s goodness, believe God’s goodness and expect God’s goodness in your life. Just as a parent will sacrifice for their children, so God has and will sacrifice for us.

John 3:16 ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son!’

If we could be convinced of God’s goodness towards us, it would change our lives. We would stand secure through all that life could throw at us. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME AND ALL THE TIME GOD IS GOOD!
