God's Goodness {God's Perfect and Glorious Character}

Over the next few days  I'd like to explore five attributes of God's perfect and glorious character.

God's Word, His Goodness, His Wrath, His Love, His Grace

Today we'll explore GOD'S GOODNESS

We like to describe many things as GOOD.  Namely, our family, friends, ....... chocolate, to name a few.   The goodness we enjoy is made possible only because the God of the universe and all creation is good.  The Lord is willing to share goodness with us because of His mercy, grace and long-suffering.  It humbles me to consider that the God of all Creation looks to provide me with all that I  need.  







 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning."
James 1:17 
The only good that we can know is the goodness that comes from God.  God is the only 
source of true good.  He is the only true Teacher of good.  We can experience God's goodness only by placing our complete faith in trust in Him.  The good gifts He gives His children are abundant and never change.   


Psalm 119:68 "Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes."
Psalm 25:8 "Good and upright is the Lord; therefore will He teach sinners in the way."
Psalm 34:8 "O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him"
Psalm 85:12 "Yea the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase."

What a blessing it is to be able to put our faith and trust in God, knowing that whatever He does for us is for His good and ultimately for our own good. Because of this blessed assurance we should honor and praise the Wonderful and Good God that we serve for all things in our life. We face trials every day and maybe even wonder WHY? is this happening now, at this time in my life. Be assured, God is always in control and He will only do for us what is best -if we are faithful to Him. No one enjoys going through trials and tribulations, however, the light at the end of the tunnel is always JESUS.

God is completely good in His character, nature and actions. 

Next time we'll explore God's Wrath.


Blessings, Pamelyn
