I don't know about you, but as a Christian in this dark world, sometimes the wicked and evil all over the place can really dishearten and discourage a follower of Christ. We often get swallowed up by the depressing news channel and never focus on the good. Despite all the bad in this world, the Lord is still good because He is in control.
Let's turn to Psalm 118:1. This is the same verse my Pappy preached on. The verse says this, "O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever." It's honestly such an amazing verse that makes my heart skip a beat. Despite all the hills and the valleys, God is still good. Let's focus in on that thought...
1.) The Lord is good because He created you and I.
2.) The Lord is good because He will fight our battles.
3.) God is good because He will supply our needs.
4.) God is good because He answers prayers. Whether it be yes or no. Ask in faith believing, not like the tossing waves. Know that God will.
5.) God is good because we just have to have the measure of faith He has given us.
6.) God is good because He still loves us.
7.) "I love you because I sent you My Son." -God
Let's Focus in on His love now.
8.) He loves us because He gave us grace.
9.) He loves us because He gives us an advocate.
10.) He loves us because He takes care of us.
11.) He loves us because we can lay down on a pillow at night and have peace if we don't wake up.
12.) God can turn our big bears into little white dogs, just because He loves us.
God is good because...He loves me.
God is simply good, just because.
There aren't words to describe God's goodness, but I'm thankful He is good. If He never did anything else for me, I would still have to serve Him, because my oh my, I may only be 17, but my God has done marvelous things in my life. My God is still good, simply just because.
Sometimes I wonder, Am I good to Him? Do I trust wholeheartedly? Am I ashamed to share my Light? I cannot compare to Him. I'm just a little speck of dirt that God is using. He's a good, good God. Have you experienced His goodness? He wants your heart, and He loves you so dearly. Your soul is so precious, give it to the one who cares so much for it.
I care so much for you too! That's why I'm blogging and sharing my notes with you today! I created a sheet for you to list all the ways God's been good to you. I guarantee after you finish writing out how God has blessed you, you will be bubbling with joy unspeakable!
