Isn’t God Good?

HomeChristianity and the BibleIsn’t God Good?

Christians should agree that God IS good…but I wonder sometimes what some people think when they say it. You see, Christians usually utter such things after a prayer request has been answered in the way the pray-er wanted. That’s as good a time as any to say it, of course…but if we really believe that God is good, we should believe it when things aren’t looking so good. 

That last one is from Job, in the Bible. He lost everything but his wife and his life, and didn’t know why…but he praised God anyway . Not because his life was in shambles, but because God is worthy of praise regardless. If God truly IS good, and if God truly DOES love us, then we can TRULY put our lives in His hands and trust Him completely…even when our prayers seem to go unanswered.
