God is Good, ALL the Time
- 2009 19 Sep
There's a popular chorus that is sung throughout the Christian Community that goes like this: God is good ALL THE TIME; All the time GOD IS GOOD. It sounds so wonderful when you hear an entire audience declare God's goodness. But what about when there's not a crowd around? What are we declaring then?
When the chips are down and the enemy is hot on our heels, that's when what we really believe comes out. In the middle of the night when your child is sick with a fever or when you have more bills than money at the end of the month, it may be more difficult to recall God's goodness. In those times we have to reach down into what we know, not what we feel, and on purpose declare that no matter what, GOD IS GOOD.
Biblcal Truths & Promises of God's Goodness
"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
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
"And surely I am with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28:60
"God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them." 1 John 4:16
"Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him." Psalm 34:8
"Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his love endures forever." Psalm 107:1
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all." 2 Corinthians 4:16-17
God is on our side and His power in us is greater than the powers of darkness that try to come against us.
Whatever you're facing today, I pray that you will remember that God is good ALL THE TIME. There is no in-between. He is always working for our good. His goodness surrounds us like a shield. He always has a good plan for us. He is abounding in grace towards us and He is committed to finishing all the good things that He has started in us. So may the words of our mouth boldly declare today and everyday that God is Good, ALL THE TIME!
A Prayer to See God's Goodness
Dear Lord it seems at times that I am blinded to Your goodness. Help me to look past my circumstances and remember that You are with me. Unveil my eyes to SEE Your goodness and Your salvation. You alone know the Truth that can set me free from the darkness that tries to invade my life. You have promised that You will never leave or forsake me and so I stand on the Truth of Your Word because You are Good all the time and Your mercy endures forever. You are my Help, my Deliver, and my Strong Tower. Thank You for Your goodness Lord. In Jesus Name, Amen.
