Undoubtedly, we all know that God is good. But what does that truly mean……that God is good?
The more I read and studied His word in the Bible, the more one central concept seemed to jump out: God’s goodness conveys His generosity (grace and mercy). His goodness means far more than His generosity, but it certainly includes His infinitely generous attitude toward us ( 1 Chronicles 16:34, Ezra 3:11, Psalm 23:6, Psalm 145:9, James 1:17, Psalm 34:8).
By divine nature, God longs to bring joy and blessing to all His creatures. There are several scriptures (refer to above) that repeatedly presents goodness as a core quality of our Lord, but the one verse I will highlight today comes out of Nahum 1:7, “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.”
As I mentioned, God is good! You may add, “all the time” and to that, I will insert even when things are not!
