GOD IS GOOD

There is a quote we as Christians say quite often.  No matter what denomonation we are, or what denomonation we're not, we hear people say it,  "God is good, all the time- All the time, God is good".  Do we really know how good He is or do we just say that because it makes us sound religious?
 
Let me tell you how good God really is:
     (1)  While we were yet sinners He loved us.  It didn't matter how bad we were or what sin we were involved in.  He still loved us.  (Ro. 5:8)
     (2)  He loved us so much that He gave His only Son to die in our place so that if we would believe on Him (Jesus) we would have eternal life.  (Jn 3:16)
     (3)  When Jesus died for us, and we accepted Him as Lord and Savior, He washed us, sanctified us, and justified us by His blood.  He shed His blood to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  He washed us clean from every sin we had ever committed.  He sanctified us and set us apart for His glory. Then He justified us, making us new creatures in Christ, old things passed away and all things became new, its just as if we'd never sinned.  (1 Cor. 6:11, 2 Cor. 5:17)
    (4)  His mercies are new every morning.  No matter how many times we mess up, no matter how many times we sin, God continues to grant us mercy, not judgement.  (Lam 3:22-23)  All we have to do is come to Him and ask His forgiveness.  He will forgive us and grant us mercy every time, and never bring that sin up again!
 
Hallalujah!!!  Praise God!!!  That makes me want to rejoice!  It makes me want to shout!  God is so good!
 
There are so many other things I could say, but I've got you thinking about God's goodness.  The Bible says:  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. (James 1:17)  He never changes His mind.  His goodness remains the same.   Meditate on God's goodness and He will show you just how good He really is. 
God IS good all the time!
All the time, God IS good!
 
Ps. 27:13-I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD 
         In the land of the living.
Ps. 31:19-Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You in the presence of the sons of men!
Ps. 65:11-You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip with abundance.
Zec. 9:17a-For how great is His goodness, and how great is His beauty!
