God is good, isn’t He?

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

How hard it is to believe this verse. We all know it. We quote it often. We use it to encourage others and lift our own spirit. But we don’t believe it. Before you react, let me ask you a question. When was the last time you got frustrated, angry or anxious? If we really believed what the Holy Spirit says here, we wouldn’t feel frustrated with our circumstances. If we really believed It, we wouldn’t be anxious about tomorrow . We would be sure that everything is okay because our God is God.

But the fact that God is God is all the problem. He is so holy, so righteous, so pure, and we are so rebellious, so sinful, so impure. Why should He be good to us? Well because He is merciful and loves us. But… He proved it on the cross. But… Yes, but He is God and He never lies or changes. He is merciful and gracious and faithful and good and shows it in so many ways every day. Let us praise Him for all His wonderful deeds.

 You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand supported me, and your gentleness made me great. Psalm 18:35
