Here at LifeSongs Radio we say “God is good all the time.” And movies like God’s Not Dead say things like “God is good all the time and all the time God is good.”
These are great sayings and the words could not be more true.
I know this to be true because of the words in the Bible and all of the amazing songs we play on LifeSongs. But I have to admit I sometimes have a hard time believing the words “God is good” when life gets tough.
When unforeseen circumstances happen in my life.
When I witness tragedy after tragedy.
I find my praises to God going from “God you are are so good” to questioning “God, are you good?”
I’m a thinker and I have always asked “why?”
Answers to my many questions will most likely never go answered, but in the midst of my questions, my hurting, and how I may perceive things-my God is good.
Matthew 5:45 (NLT) says, “In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.” Matthew 5:45 NLT
Just because we live a life for Christ does not mean we will be free from burdens, free from pain, or free from brokenness.
But the wonderful thing about the goodness of God is that He promises to be with us in the midst of the storms of life.
And man oh man, does that make Him so so good!
The beauty and peace of walking with God is that He never leaves us nor forsakes us.
Today, be uplifted. Fix your eyes on Jesus instead of the issues of life and recognize in the midst of rain and unexpected circumstances that God is with you and wants to be your JOY through your trial.
Cling to him, trust Him, and never let your circumstances change your perspective of how good our Heavenly Father truly is!
