The LORD Is Good

The LORD Is Good

When everything seems  to be going wrong  and we don’t understand why,  people have a tendency  to think God  is not being “good” to them.     We lack insight  to the whole picture  and do not have the wisdom  of God  to be able  to see how everything will work  for the good  for all those  who love the Lord.

At those times,  we need  to remember  and think about  all the biblical accounts  of how things looked  very dismal  and scary  to many of God’s children.     In each event,  it was when  they turned to God  in repentance,  trust,  and praise,  that they began  to be assured  that God was working everything  for their good.

God’s love never failed them then,  and it will not fail His children  today.     That is why  we can sing  with the psalmist in Psalm 135:1-6,

Praise the LORD!
Praise the name  of the LORD;
Praise Him,  O servants  of the LORD,

You who stand  in the house  of the LORD,
In the courts  of the house  of our God!

Praise the LORD,  for the LORD  is good;
Sing praises  to His name,  for it is lovely.

For the LORD has chosen Jacob  for Himself,
Israel  for His own possession.

For I know  that the LORD  is great
And that our Lord is  above all gods.

Whatever the LORD pleases,  He does,
In heaven  and in earth,  in the seas  and in all deeps.

Our praises  are based  on all  that God has done  since the beginning  of time  and on how  He has proven  that He always keeps  His word.     That is why  it is not necessary  to worry  about the tough times  we all need  to go through.     God’s love and faithfulness  will carry us through  as we trust  and praise His name.

As we praise God’s goodness  from the depths  of our hearts,  we can say,  “Hallelujah!     The LORD is good  and is above  all gods.”

Love,
Margaret
