Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
—Psalm 23:6 NIV
GOD is good and He is good all the time. However, the outcomes of His goodness may not always be immediately apparent to us. Sometimes, this is because He hides those outcomes for a while. At other times, it is because we are overwhelmed by the difficulties of life. Whatever our situation, it is important to pay attention to those manifestations of God’s goodness that are visible in our daily lives and set our minds on them. As we do, we will find ourselves rising above the clouds of darkness that threaten to subdue us. If we focus on it, the joy of God’s goodness will ultimately flush out every trace of darkness that the enemy places on our path.
God is good all the time. Even when life is bleak and all hope seems lost, confidence in the One whose love never fails brings a spark and reason to live. The worst kind of misery anyone could face is not misery from difficult circumstances (as challenging as this might be), but it’s the one that results from losing God’s favor. From this calamity, there is no deliverance! Hence, our Lord Jesus Christ said, “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).
In every other situation, Scripture tells us, “God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). In other words, as long as we have His favor, we can have hope and trust God to rescue us in every situation.
