God's Goodness - His Providential Care And Precious Promises


"And we know in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose" (Rom.8:28).

I believe that God's goodness is shown in his providential workings within the world. It may be difficult to understand how God works in history and the contemporary works of man, but today's verse goes a long way to help in explaining it. We certainly do know that God is aware of the evil and the good working in the hearts of man. I think what he does is to coalesce them for his eternal purpose. That being said, we can avow the words of today's verse with a knowing confidence... We can add to this the promises... These promises produce hope that sustains our faith and sees us through life. Hope in the promises of God gives us strong encouragement when we need and seek refuge. Here's how the writer of the Book of Hebrews explains it; "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure..." (6:19). What are these promises, you ask? How about these; forgiveness of sin, provisions for living, help in the time of need, help with overcoming temptations, a peace that passes understanding, his abiding presence with us, the resurrection of our bodies, a dwelling place with the Father in eternity... These are all promised to those who remain faithful in him... The providential working of God and the fulfillment of his promises are evidences to all of us about the goodness of God... God is so good...

Have a great day... T G I F Thank God I'm Forgiven.... Love mark Phil.4:11
