Have you ever noticed that when people say, “God is good!” it’s often in the context of God doing something good for them?
I got the job! God is good!
They accepted our offer! Isn’t God good?
No more chemo! God is so good!
We won a trip to Disney World! God is good to us!
God does delight in giving us good things (James 1:17), and we are right to give Him glory when good things happen. But I have a confession to make: On bad days, when I hear the proclamation, I'm sometimes tempted to think, Of course He’s good. You just got a blessing.
