God is Good

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Luke 2:14 This proclamation was not made at the birth of Christ by a multitude of angels just to engender warm fuzzy feelings for Christmas seasons of the future.  God was saying from the smallest, loneliest most insignificant individual to the largest collective mass of humanity, “Hey everybody, I’m in a good mood and want good for you”.  God desires good for us so much He became flesh to make a way for us to enjoy His limitless goodness.  They shall be My people, and I will be their God; then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good – Jeremiah 32:38-40. It’s time to settle once and for all the central issue to trusting God; that He is good all the time and desires good for us.  Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. 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 1:16-17.
