Ten proof of God's goodness


Allow me to introduce God to you. I am going to be sharing over the next few posts on How good God is. I compiled ten proofs from God's Word that will prove beyond doubt how good He is. I realize that our present circumstances or past experiences may not reflect to our senses how good He is. I have a future post that will discuss some of those issues. If God is so good what about....? I will address some tough question at that time. For now let me introduce God to you. Here is the first three proofs that God is good.

1. What God the Father declared about Himself in the Word:
 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. Nahum 1:7
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him Psalm 34:8
You are good and do only good; teach me your decrees. Psalms  119:68 (notice here he only does good).
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights…James 1:17
Father God reveals He is good and only works good works. God and His Word are in agreement. Our Father is good.
2. What Jesus said about Himself while here on Earth.                               
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly John 10:10 KJV
The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 NLT
For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them. And they went to another village Luke 9:56 NKJV
Jesus came to give life, a satisfying life. He came to save not destroy men’s lives (which would include health, family, business and relationship with God). Jesus revealed his will towards humanity, to bring life and deliverance.

3. What the Word says about the Holy Ghost. 
      Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; Your Spirit is 
      good.  Psalms 143:10
         You also gave Your good Spirit to instruct them...Nehemiah 
      The Scriptures have revealed the Holy Ghost is good to. So 
      there is no questioning the character of any person in the Divine  

   These first three proofs are clearly strong revelations from God's Word. God our Father is good. He is not some cosmic tyrant in the sky as some have painted Him. The Son of God is the One who came as a Lamb slain to pay the price for all mankind. He is not a vengeful angry God or the One withholding blessings. 
  The Spirit of God is good. He is not the One bringing condemnation to you when you miss it. The Word reveals the Spirit of God testifies to your spirit that you are a child of God if you've been born again and adopted into the Family. He doesn't convict you of your sin. Many misunderstand John's gospel. Jesus never said the Spirit convicts us of sin. It states the Spirit convicts the World of the sin of unbelief. He convicts us of our right standing with God! 
 Now we can with great confidence approach God knowing He is good, only good! Trust in Him completely! He is good and has your best in mind!
 Bless you for taking the time to check out the post. Leave a comment if it blessed you or if you disagree I appreciate your feedback.
