Do You Ever Doubt God’s Goodness Toward You?

Have you ever had any reason to doubt God’s goodness? Would you agree that His loving kindness has been marvelous? Has He at any time failed to justify your trust? Your answer should be a resounding, no! I think it safe to say your God has never left you at any time.

You may have had some dark nights, but the star of love has shone forth amid the blackness; you may have been in stern conflicts, but over your head He has held the shield of your defense. You may have gone through many trials, but never to your detriment, always to your advantage.

The conclusion from your past experience is, that he who has been with you in your troubles, will not forsake you when you experience more. What you have known of your faithful God, proves that he will protect you and keep you to the end.

Let us not, then, reason contrary to the evidence. Let us not be ungenerous as to doubting our God. Let the Lord, throw down the enemy of your unbelief, and let the dogs devour it.

What A Glorious Thought

Jesus began his sermon in Matthew 5:3-5 with words that seem to contradict each other. But God’s way of living usually contradicts the world’s.

If you want to live for God, you must be ready to say and do what seems strange to the world. You must be willing to give when others take, to love when others hate, to help when others abuse. By giving up your own rights in order to serve others, you will one day receive everything God has in store for you.

What a glorious thought and promise to hold on to!
