The Goodness of God (Towards those He calls His own)
I have been thinking lately about the goodness of God and what that looks like. In this post I'm going to talk about the goodness of God towards those he calls His own.
God is saying you are MINE!!!!
When You’re Between a Rock and a Hard Place
But now,God’s Message,
the God who made you in the first place, Jacob,
the One who got you started, Israel:
“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you’re between a rock and a hard place,
it won’t be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
I paid a huge price for you:
all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in!
That’s how much you mean to me!
That’s how much I love you!
I’d sell off the whole world to get you back,
trade the creation just for you.
Wow, what a amazing scripture of God's promises towards his children. God has made you from the beginning of creation. You don't have to be afraid, He has redeemed you. Redeemed here means that you were bought with a price and His name is Jesus. He knows us by name, as a matter of fact he knows the number of hair on our heads. Your HIS!!!! I'm always with you to end of the days, I wont leave nor forsake you. I will be there to rescue you even in the deepest waters. There are NO dead ends with God,only the goodness of God displayed. He paid a price for you, He sent his one and only son to die for all sins (past, present and future). He loves us so much that we can't even fathom how that is. He says he will trade creation for us, Wow now that's the Goodness of God!!!! The Goodness of God is how God has demonstrated his love for his people that love him. Child of God, He Loves you beyond what your wildest dreams could imagine, Its that deep,far and wide. I'm amazed by the goodness of God in my life and I hope you are too. Rest knowing that you are His and then see His goodness displayed all around you!!! Its really hard not to see His Goodness!!!!!!!!!!!
