On one of our music tapes the worship leader introduces a song by saying, “God is good all the time; and all the time God is good.” It is a rather simple truth but very important because the devil will try to get us to doubt the goodness of God. Oswald Chambers comments that “the root of sin is the belief that God is not good”.
The devil’s temptations run along the lines that if God is good He would not allow this to happen or that person to get sick. If God is good He would not keep things from us. So to combat these lies we need to establish in our minds once and for all, that God is good.
When things are going well it is easy to believe God is good but when things are not working out the way we want them to, it can be difficult.
Nevertheless God is good, his motives are pure and He always acts in our best interests. He is not swayed by the latest fads. He does not have a “bad day” or a day where he can’t be reached. He is always there for us. We can trust the goodness of God.
So regardless of our circumstances we can say, “Yes, God is good all the time; and all the time God is good.”
