"The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works." Psalm 145:9
There is a certain prayer that has been taught to children for generations that they say before meals-- I learned it, my daughter learned it, my granddaughter has learned it. "God is great, God is good, let us thank Him for our food. Amen." Many times it is repeated without any thought to what it says, we just say it out of habit.
The truth is God is good, and God is great. God's goodness is seen in His kind and tender mercies that He shows to us daily. His goodness is connected to His glory. Moses desired to see His face and He showed him His goodness. Goodness is not just something the Lord possess, it is what He looks like. His goodness is with us because He is with us- never leaving or forsaking us. His goodness follows us all the days of our lives.
God is great. His greatness is seen in creation. He created the smallest atom and the largest planet. His greatness is shown in His saving, delivering, healing power. Sin is not too great that He can't forgive and cleanse a repentant heart from it. There is no bondage, or life controlling substance, that can withstand His delivering power. There is no disease or sickness that is more powerful than His ability to heal.
The next time you hear a child, some one else or even yourself say that simple little prayer think about what is being said--- God is good and God is great indeed.
Have a great day. God is good and God is great.
