How Good Is God Today?

God is so good

When your world is falling apart, is God good? When you wake up in pain, when your mind is suddenly flooded with the memory of all the terrible things you have to face, is God good?

Sometimes it’s difficult to remember who God is. We can be so overwhelmed with problems, that God is the last thing on our mind. All we see is pain or big trouble. Or we stop even believing that God is good at all. It’s just hard to see good when all you see in front of you is bad.┬áSometimes it’s difficult to remember who God is. We can be so overwhelmed with problems, that God is the last thing on our mind. All we see is pain or big trouble. Or we stop even believing that God is good at all. It’s just hard to see good when all you see in front of you is bad.

But God never changes. His very nature is good. He continues to be good every day, rain or shine. He’s always good. Grounding your thoughts to believe that takes some effort. You may need to read and re-read scripture every day to stand firmly and declare who He is. You may need to change the people you hang out with. You may have to practice the sacrifice of praise.

It may be that we continue in your circumstances because you forget how good God is. Don’t allow your trust in God to shift from day to day depending on how you feel. For he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord. (Jam 1:6-7)

Proclaim the goodness of God despite your circumstances. You may get the breakthrough you are looking for. Or you may get the strength to go through the circumstances with greater power and authority. Either way, God is always good and His goodness is amazing.
