God’s Goodness - June 24, 2016

God’s goodness is a major headline in the Bible! Psalm 34:8 says, “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”  The heart of God is unblemished. If God were only mighty, we would salute him. But since he is merciful and mighty, we can approach him. No wonder the psalmist invited, “Taste and see that the LORD is good.”

A glimpse of God’s goodness changes us. God’s unrivaled goodness undergirds everything else we can say about prayer. If he is like us, only slightly stronger, then why pray? If he grows weary, then why pray? If he has limitations, then you might as well pray to the Wizard of Oz. However if God is at once Father and Creator, holy—unlike us—and high above us, then we, at any point, are only a prayer away from help!
