Can We Really Say That God Is Good All The Time?
Some people think God is good just some of the time. But the truth is that He is good all of the time! The problem is that most Christians judge God’s goodness by whether or not they feel blessed or not. But we can’t judge God by our emotions.
John 10:10-11 gives us a great truth,
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”
Is your concept of God that He is good sometimes, but not all the time? That sometimes He is blessing you; but other times, He is the source of your troubles? If so, I want to put that notion out of your heart and mind today.
Jesus came to give us abundant life, while the devil, the thief, wants to steal, kill, and destroy. God is always a good God, and the devil is always evil.
I remember being told by family years ago that God is good only to some people and not all. So the implication was that God is good but not to every person.
My relatives also taught me that God is good some of the times and not all the time. I was given no explanation for this, so I studied the Bible myself and decided they were wrong.
It was obvious to me that God is good all the time, but we have to take God at His Word and not judge Him according to what we can see at the moment. We have to see him through what the scriptures say and as we do, His true self will be revealed to us.
While some are complaining that God isn’t answering their prayers, He is busy trying to get past their “weak” faith to give them what they want.
When things seem to be going wrong for some people, instead of asking God for help and taking it by faith that He is going to help them, they tie His hands by leaving Him out of their situation and not giving Him the opportunity to step in and turn everything around for the good. Then they think that God caused the problem.
A lot of people tend to be this way, but God is always good. The Bible says in James 1:17, Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
There is not the slightest degree of variation in this. God is always good. And the gifts He gives are good and perfect gifts. It’s a blessing that they don’t just stay in heaven. God sees to it that they make their way down to you and me.
God is good… all the time.
