God's Unfailing Goodness

Micah 6:3: "O my people, what have I done unto thee? And wherein have I wearied thee? Testify against me."

What a convicting verse of scripture! The Lord has challenged His people with two questions and a command, which are answered more precisely by the deafening silence which followed than ten thousand words could have expressed! The truth is, if we were to attempt to give an answer to our Lord in response to our text, we would be rendered speechless! There is absolutely nothing we can say to prove that our Lord has ever mistreated us or done us wrong. As a matter of fact, to the contrary, we have Romans 8:28 which says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

So, even the “hard times” of our Christian experience are used by God to propel us into a more fruitful season of our lives! Never forget that even though your situation has an advantage over you today, if you will believe God and trust Him, He will turn the tide and give you the advantage over your situation! Sometimes we are given the impression by false teaching that if we live for God, nothing bad will ever happen to us, but that is simply not the case. It’s no wonder that many charge God foolishly when things go wrong, for they have been taught to think that way!

However, I am living proof that just because you live for God does not mean that hardships will not come. What we have is not immunity to the storms of life, but rather shelter in the storms! God may not always remove the enemy from your life, but He will prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies! He may not spare you from suffering, but He will give you Grace sufficient enough to enable you to endure! Paul said in 2 Co. 4:8-9, “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;”

Child of God, the enemy may cause you much trouble, but he cannot destroy you, because you have the protection of your Father!
