Our God Is A Good God!
Our God is good, Always. It's one of the main attributes of the God of the
bible. You can trust Him to be Good in all His dealings.
For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be
a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. 11
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good
thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.
God has great plans for us and we can have it all once we submit to be guided
by Him. God wants to give all good things to those who love Him. David realised
this and noticed that once he repented of his errors God forgave him and brought
him back into a good relationship with Him.
We also are in a similar, yet better situation regarding our walk with God.
Once we live with a repentant attitude, submitted to God and guided by Holy Spirit,
He gives all good things to us when we ask. In fact even before we ask He answers us!
And, He has provided the means through His Son Jesus Christ for us to live uprightly
Romans 4:5 But to him that works not, but believes on him
that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. 6
even as David also describes the blessedness of the man, to whom God imputes
righteousness without works, 7 saying, "Blessed are they whose iniquities are
forgiven, and whose sins are covered. 8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord
will not impute sin".
To say that God will punish them and give Christians diseases because of their sins
is to say that He is a liar and His word cannot be trusted. He IS imputing our sins
The truth though is that our God has made us righteous in His Son. Our response to
such a Good God is to love Him and live for Him. And while Satan will come against us,
we know that we will win, and as we walk with God we know also that, "No good thing
will he withhold from us".
Best wishes for Grace and the Peace of Jesus.
