GOD IS GOOD!
Psalms 107:1 – Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. (NLT)
Two men travelled with a donkey and a lamp. One of them was religious, while the other was an unbeliever. Along the way, the believer said ‘God is good’. ‘Well, we will see during this trip’, said the other man. At night, they could not get a place to sleep in the nearby village; so they slept outside the small-town. ‘I thought you said that ‘God is good’, the unbeliever mocked. ‘God has decided that this is the best option for us’, explained the believer. Consequently, they made their tent under a big tree and tied the donkey about five metres away. Suddenly, a lion killed the donkey, and the men quickly climbed the tree.
‘Friend, you still think that God is good?’, the man asked in anger. ‘If the lion had not eaten the donkey, we would have been eaten. So, God is good!’, said the cheerful man. Shortly! A mighty wind blew off the only lamp that kept them warm, and the doubtful man mocked his friend, ‘Apparently, God’s goodness has been working for us all night.’ This time, the Christian did not respond! In the morning, they returned to the village to get food, but they found out that a robbery took place overnight. Hearing this, the believer said, ‘Now, it is clear that God is good. If we spent the night here, we would have been robbed. Had the wind not blown our lamp, the robbers would have seen us.’ Finally, the unbeliever confessed that ‘the Lord is good!’.
Beloved, no matter the condition, as seen in our Bible reading, God is good. He cannot bring you this far to abandon you (Deuteronomy 31:6). God has perfect timing; He is never too early or late. It may take a bit of endurance and faith, but in the end; it will be worth the wait! Therefore, always remember that ‘Those who leave everything in God’s hands will see the hands of God in everything’. Be Born Again!
