Every day that passes, I become more and more convinced of one thing: the goodness of God is His ultimate trump card.
Within His goodness is everything else we could possibly need. Love…justice…mercy…provision…affection…healing…grace…you name it, His goodness cover it. And even better, His goodness is fueled by His power and character, and not what our ideas of what we deserve.
Every rotten thing we manage to think and do will eventually be confronted by His goodness. Of course, repentance is the key for figuring out if His goodness is going to be working for us or against us in that instance.
Gossipers and thieves, murderers and litterbugs, we all need an encounter with His goodness.
I need about eighty-two of them every day.
