“The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.”
As I sit here in my bed getting ready for a night of restful sleep, my mind can’t help but go back to how good our God is. No matter what has happen or taken place in our world or in our lives, our God is good. I know that there are many that would argue with me on that point because of things that have taken place in their lives or hurts that they have faced but if you go to God’s Word you will see how good He is.
First He is good because He is full of gracious and full of compassion. My friend, God cares about you and what you are going through. When you hurt, He hurts and all you have to do is to cast all your heartache upon Him. In fact James 4:8 gives us this promise: “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you”
Second God is good because He is slow to anger and full of mercy. When you think about it you and I do not deserve the love and compassion of God. According to scripture there is nothing good in us that deserves that in fact we are deserving of God’s wrath . But because God loves us and desires for us to come to Him, He allowed His Son to pay the price for our sins. All we have to Him through faith in JesusChrist.
Finally God is good because He showers His tender mercies upon all. Everyone in this world, whether they admit it or not has experienced the goodness of God. They have air to breathe a world to live in and food to eat all because of the goodness of God. Yes, our God is good!!!!
