Probably you have heard this expression or even said it – “God is good.”
When do we express it? Do we say “God is good” when He answers with a “yes” to our prayer requests? When circumstances favor us? When everything goes as planned?
How about when His answer is “no” or when we don’t hear anything at all? When plans don’t go our way? When we do what is right and don’t see the results we wish to see? Is He still good? The answer is “yes.” He hears your prayers, but there is always a purpose in the waiting.
If you believe the Father sent His Son to die on the cross so you can be saved, then you are His child. And as a father, He desires the best for you and wants to give you good gifts (see James 1:17).
We have expectations in life, but not all of them are met. And that frustrates us. We bring our requests before God, believing in His faithfulness. Yes, He is faithful – to His promises – not to our expectations.
No matter what is the answer you receive, trust God and His written word. He is a good Father.
