Believe in God’s Goodness Towards You 2

 God's Goodness 2[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!—Psalms 27:13 (Amplified)

This is Part 2 of this series on God’s Goodness. To read the first, click here.

The goodness of God is a firm reality! However, it can only be real in your life if you exercise faith in it. How do you have faith in God’s goodness? Glad you asked. The goodness of God is expressed throughout the scriptures and that is where our search will start and finish.

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.Genesis 1:1-4

The goodness of God is seen in the Creation. God took chaos and began to set order to it by calling light to where there was darkness and saw it as good. In other words, one indication of God’s goodness is He creates good things. We can take this model throughout the Bible and not only see the goodness of God but also, trust that goodness for our lives as well. What does this mean? It means we can look to God to be rid of everything that hurts us.

For instance, if you are sick, please know that God wants you well…always! He is our Healer! Some would have you believe that He uses sickness to teach us something or to bring us into submission to His Will. Looking at the verse below, we see Jesus’ compassion in carrying out the Father’s Will for Healing and showing His Goodness.

2 Then a man suffering from a dreaded skin disease came to him, knelt down before him, and said, “Sir, if you want to, you can make me clean.” 3 Jesus reached out and touched him. “I do want to,” he answered. “Be clean!” At once the man was healed of his disease.—Matt. 8:2-3 (Good News Translation)

The thing we must understand is that God is always good and is always willing to bless us. Again, this is shown to us in the verse above. The leprous man was constantly being rejected by society and had heard that Jesus was healing sick folk. Not being sure if Jesus would heal him, he prefaced his prayer with, “if you want to”. Jesus expressed the goodness of God with, “I do want to…be clean.” God is good and is always willing to express that goodness to the entire world. We have to come to Him full of faith in His goodness.

Believing in God’s goodness elevates us above the mundane and brings us into the realm of the supernatural, where anything is possible.

Father, may we always be certain of Your Love for us and Your Goodness towards us. Help us to believe Your Word more than our experiences and what others may say! For Your Word is always right and Your Works are done in Truth. Thank you…Amen!

      Hello Gracie! I just wanted to say thank you for re-blogging my post! I am honored that you liked my post enough to re-blog it…It is an honor to have someone share what I’ve written with others and I appreciate it! May God’s blessings be yours! –Sebastian

  2. A wonderful message Brother Sebastian and yes God’s goodness and Love is seen in all His creation because He is Love and Love is all goodness.

    I believe very much in a God who heals Miraculously, He has healed me this way more than once. I don’t put His complete healing in a box of the impossible , He is God of the impossible but He also heals through His creation, such as natural remedies, Medicine, Doctors etc, but He is the only healer , we give Him the thanks. He knows just how much we can endure and will intervene but also gives us strength to endure, yes our bodies are wearing and out and we can die but He keeps our spirit soaring with Him.

    We give Him the thanks in all things not for our suffering but that He is with us in it and always and yes you are right God wants us well and so True, He does not afflict us to teach us, He works everything out for good but does not do evil to bring good out of it… the Scriptures tell us this is slander, He also does not abuse us through others, or slander us, back stab or condemn.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

    Thank you again Sebastian – Christian Love from us both- Anne

    Thank you for this! I really hope that all people will see that God’s nature is to bless His people. In the past days, that same verse (psalms 27:13) is what I’ve been holding on to. I believe that every word of God has power and filled with truth. Surely, we will see His goodness.
    Blessings to you!

    • Sebastian says:

      Amen! You’re welcome and thank you for your response. It is this belief that will allow real breakthrough that will allow the power of God to flow into our lives. Blessings to you as well!

  4. Our lives become more certain in Gods loving embrace! Your words are always radiating with the bliss of His Spirit. I feel the power alive within and it is so very inspiring. God bless!
