I often hear other Christians say, “God is good!” I heard it when a sick child recovered. When a biopsy returned benign. When a job in jeopardy was saved. And when a rebellious teen turned back to God.
But what about when the child dies or it comes back “cancer” or the job is lost or the teenager never returns? Is God good then?
The Bible says God is good. God cannot be good one moment and not the next. He can’t be good in one situation and not another.
Not long ago, a Facebook friend posted, “God is good!” Then she detailed all the recent positive happenings in her life as the proof.
This troubled me. We flawed humans tend to declare God’s goodness only when things turn out the way we hoped. Do we only believe God is good because our circumstances are easy? What if our circumstances are hard? Does that mean God is not good? Or that He is good only to those who don’t have trouble and difficulty?
Our circumstances do not dictate or define God’s goodness. His character dictates His goodness. God is good all the time. No matter the circumstances.
So what does this truth mean for us today?
Remember that God is good all the time. Not just when things are going the way we want them to.
Have you ever been guilty of declaring God’s goodness only in times of ease? Forgetting His goodness in times of difficulty? What are some things we can do to remind ourselves of His goodness in every situation?
