God's Goodness - God Is So Good


"God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He's so good to me!
He cares for me, He cares for me, He cares for me, He's so good to me!
I love Him so, I love Him so, I love Him so, He's so good to me!
He answers prayer, He answers prayer, He answers prayer, He's so good to me!
"

God Is So Good -Traditional- 1933

Who can honestly say that because of faith, hope, and love as a Christian, and through the affirmation of our faith, that God is so good? It is my hope that all of us can... The Psalmist wrote this; "How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you" (31:19). In this verse, David deposits his life in the hands of God to share in the covenant benefits that God has stored up for his faithful servants. As we can see, God's goodness, and all of the benefits are displayed even in seemingly bad times... God's goodness is reflected in the wonders of the creation, where Moses recorded at the end of "each day" the statement, "and God saw that it was good..." At Lystra, the apostle Paul confirmed that God created the heavens and earth and seas and all that is in them (Acts 14:15) and then talked about His goodness in this manner; "and yet He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness" (V 17). When preaching to Jewish audiences, the apostles emphasized that Jesus was the Messiah of the Old Testament and was good in keeping His promise to Abraham through David about the Son of God in the person of Jesus Christ. To the Gentiles they emphasized that God is the good giver, the creator, the upholder of the laws that govern the creation, and the giver of all things that sustain men. We will look at the goodness of God this week... He is not far from any one of us.... Surely, God Is So Good!

Have a great start to your week. Begin it with a RAK or two.... Love mark Phil.4:11
