The GOODNESS of God!

Did you know that God is good all the time? Most believers will say they believe this BUT when something doesn’t go as planned God usually gets the blame. When you know God’s character you will realise that He is not the one behind your trouble. However, He is always available to show you the way through.

The Known Character of God

There are many other references throughout the Bible that describe the true nature and character of God:-

1) God is love  – love covers a multitude of sins, it never fails or gives up (1 Cor 13)

2) God does not change, He is unchanging (Mal 3:6, James 1:17, Heb 6)

3) God does not lie (Num 23:19, Rom 3:4)

4) God cannot act contrary to His own character and nature (Heb 6)

5) God does not alter His Word or break His Covenant (Ps 89:34, Heb 6)

6) God’s Word is true and stands forever (1 Pet 1:25)

7) God does not test or tempt us with evil (James 1:13-17)

8) God’s Kingdom does not work against itself!  A house divided will fall!

9) ONLY good gifts come from God (James 1:17)

10) God does not withhold any good thing from the righteous (Ps 84:11b)

11) All of God’s callings and gifts are irrevocable, (without repentance), which means that God does not change His mind (Rom 11:29 – see Amp and MSG versions).

12) God does not show partiality or favouritism (Acts 10:34, Rom 2:11), which means that He does not bless one person over another.  God’s gifts are freely available to ALL who believe in Him.

Now that is Good News!
