“God Is Good All The Time”Categories: Christian Attitudes, Tuesday Email Devo
In the Bible, when good things happened, people blessed the name of the Lord! For example, when Ruth had married Boaz and had delivered their first son, the women who knew her said, "Blessed be the Lord... and may his name be renowned in Israel!" (Ruth 4:14)
Also in the Bible, when bad things happened, people of faith still blessed the name of the Lord! So when Job had lost his children and his fortune in a single day, he said, "The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord" (Job 1:21).
The thing to learn from this is that God is good all the time. He is just as much God in our good times and in our bad times. And he is just as blessed, no matter the situation we're in. And although there are times when his goodness is seen more evidently, we need to make a special effort to know Him well enough that we can acknowledge and appreciate his goodness ALWAYS.
