Seeing God as good is not based on what's right in front of us at any given moment. Sometimes we are clouded by difficulties beyond our control and may even question where is God is what is He up to, yet God is always good and is always working behind the scenes for those who follow after Him with all their heart, soul and mind. We may need to remind ourselves of His goodness and how much He cares, knowing that ultimately we win with God and can overcome anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens us in and through it all. May these Scriptures remind us of the wonder of God and His greatness towards us.
