“The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him”. Nahum 1:7, NKJV
Some might ask me, with all that is happening in the world right now, “Do I still consider that God is good”?
Yes, yes I do. God is good, even when we don’t understand why bad things are happening to us and those around us. God is good, all the time!
Even Job said, “…Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?…”
During all his adversities, Job did not curse the name of God like satan thought he would. Job saw the goodness of God in his adversities just like he did during all the good times.
I am convinced that we will see God’s goodness in all the tragedy that is unfolding around us.
If it draws us closer to Him, it will have been good. If it heals the deep divisions in our nation, it will have been good. If it brings people to Christ, it will have been good. If it brings real revival to our churches and to our nation, it will have been good.
Be encouraged today in knowing that God is good all the time; even in the valley of the shadow of death.
Be encouraged today by keeping your eyes on Jesus and “hold fast” to your faith.
