God is Good

God’s been talking to me. Sometimes, almost screaming at me, others times I can hardly hear Him. But I know it’s Him. He’s speaking because I asked Him a bunch of questions. And I’m listening. I have no choice.

Remember John 6: 66-71? Jesus kept referring to Himself as the Bread of Life. He told the crowd that they must eat His flesh and drink His blood. His popularity plummeted. He turns to the twelve and asks if they are going to leave, too. Peter replied, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. We have believed and have come to know that you are the Holy One of God.”

I had no choice because there is nowhere else to go. Jesus has the words of eternal life. I know that.

So how has God been speaking to me? Mostly through His Word. When asking God how He could create people who seem to have no hope of a “safe” “fulfilling” “comfortable” life, He’s shown truths about Himself.

First, He’s shown me that He is God, and that He is good. In fact, He is the measuring stick of good since He is God. These are some verses I’ve come across in my daily devotional, “Face to Face,” by Kenneth Boa.

“Oh give thanks to the LORD for He is good, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.” Psalm 107:1.

“Oh taste and see that the LORD is good; how blessed is the man that takes refuge in Him.” Psalm 34: 8

“How great is your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You before the sons of men!”

That’s all for today. I’ll continue with how He is speaking to me. I’ll give you a hint. It has to do with the BSF founder and Francis Chan. Plus my daily Bible readings.

It’s comforting to know that God says He is good.

His Point of View is the one that counts.
