God is good—all of the time!

This morning I’m working on a faculty devotion on God’s goodness.  Do you know people who are quick to claim God’s goodness during the good times, but not so much during the bad times.  As Christians, we do not want to send a message to the world that we believe God is only good when good things are happening to us!  I want you to think about a time when life was hard for you.  Think about a time when God did not answer a prayer the way you prayed for.  Now think about your view of God during that time.  Did He still seem “good” to you?  As we grow in Christ, we must be careful not to make God be someone He is not.  We cannot change Him to meet our needs or desires.  One mark of a mature Christian is realizing God is who He says He is.  And one characteristic of God is that He is good and He is good all of the time.  Think on this:  How you  feel does not change who God is.  Thanks for reading this morning!
