A Good God (Psalm 9:9)

When we experience tragedy, we may wonder about God’s goodness. Is God always good? Yes, He is. He doesn’t promise that bad things will never happen to us, but He does promise to be “our refuge and strength” (Psalm 46:1). He doesn’t promise that we will never walk through heart-wrenching circumstances, but He promises that we won’t be alone (23:4).

God is good – no matter what suffering we are experiencing. Even when we don’t understand, we can say with Habakkuk, “Yet will I rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation” (3:18). – Cindy Hess Kasper.

O haste and see that God is good To all who seek His face; Yea, blest the one who trusts in Him, confiding in His grace. – Psalter

God tests our faith so that we may trust His faithfulness.
