How Good God Is & Pumpkin Roll

Romans 8:31 (erv)

So what should we say about this? If God is for us, no one can stand against us. And God is with us.


God is good. We know this, right? As Christians, we know this. We believe it. But even on our best, most faithful days, I don’t know that we fully grasp the extent and intensity of His goodness.

“God is good” flows from my mouth so easily. Too easily. The same way that “good morning” or “thank you” does. But this phrase isn’t one that should be taken lightly and I think that we should all be spending more time focusing on what this really means, and how true it really is.

I recently read a passage from The God of All Comfort by Hannah Whitall Smith, and I wanted to share it below, because it’s such a great example of what it looks like to really spend time focusing on God’s goodness and attempting to feel it and understand it.

“I shall never forget the hour when I first discovered that God was really good. I had of course, always known that the Bible said He was good, but I had thought it only meant He was religiously good, and it had never dawned on me that it meant He was actually and practically good, with the same kind of goodness He has commanded us to have …and then one day I came in my reading of the Bible across the words, “O taste and see that Lord is good,” and suddenly they meant something. The Lord is good, I repeated to myself. What does it mean to be good? What but this, the living up to the best and highest the one knows … and I saw that, since God is omniscient, He must know what is the best and highest good of all, and that therefore His goodness must necessarily be beyond question. I can never express what this meant to me. I had such a view of the actual goodness of God that I saw nothing could possibly go wrong under His care, and it seemed to me that no one could ever be anxious again. And over and over, when appearances have been against Him, and when I have been tempted to question whether He had not been unkind, or neglectful, or indifferent, I have been brought up short by the words, the Lord is good, and I have seen that it was simply unthinkable that a God who was good could have done the bad things I had imagined.”
