Daily Devotion: The Goodness of God

Bible Reading: Nahum 1:7-15

Key Verse: Verse 7 – “The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

Key Words: The Lord is good

The Lord is good!! But many only see God as good when good things are happening in their life; but God is good both in the good times and the not so happy times.

Corrie Ten Boom writes: “Often I have heard people say, 'How good God is! We prayed that it would not rain for our church picnic, and look at the lovely weather!' Yes, God is good when He sends good weather. But God was also good when He allowed my sister, Betsie, to starve to death before my eyes in a German concentration camp. I remember one occasion when I was very discouraged there. Everything around us was dark, and there was darkness in my heart. I remember telling Betsie that I thought God had forgotten us. 'No, Corrie,' said Betsie, 'He has not forgotten us. Remember His Word: For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.'” Corrie concludes, "There is an ocean of God's love available--there is plenty for everyone. May God grant you never to doubt that victorious love--whatever the circumstances." Because God is always good.

What to do:
✞ Remember Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
