God is Good.....Always!!

This little phrase seems to easily roll off our lips in times of joy, doesn't it? When we get exciting news, a raise at work, a new house...etc. There are times, though, when this phrase takes a lot of prayer and trusting in God to say.

I was so encouraged in reading Nahum 1 and Lamentations 3 today. In the beginning of Lam. 3 the writer is in deep despair as he feels God is not with him or is punishing him, but then the truth of who God is is brought to His mind and this is what he says:
21.But this I call to mind, (notice this is a choice he makes!)
and therefore I have hope:
22.The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;[b]
his mercies never come to an end;
23.they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24."The LORD is my portion," says my soul,
"therefore I will hope in him."
25.The LORD is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.
26.It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the LORD…
