God Is Still Good

Lately our world has been filled with bad news,

But even in the midst of trouble, God is still good.

Chaos and confusion has been swirling,

But the Lord is still the God of peace (1 Cor. 14:33)

Even when so many have been filled with hate,

Our Maker is still the Lord of love (1 John 4:8).

Arrests have taken place, some falsely, some justified,

But God is still good, offering spiritual freedom to all (Rom. 6:3-7).

The Supreme Court is pushing decisions they deem “right.”

But God is the only true, honest, and good Judge of the world (Acts 17:31-32).

Heated debates have occurred on these big issues,

But God was good enough to already provide the answers (2 Tim. 3:16-17).

Cities have been filled with riots, trash, and destruction,

But the good Lord offers us an eternal home without such things (Rev. 21:4).

Despite all the sin, wickedness, and corruption,

The Lord is good enough to patiently wait for us to repent (2 Pet. 3:9).

It seems the only breaths of fresh air lately are those who have display godlike qualities of love, peace, and kindness (Eph. 4:31-32). It’s painful to watch all the heartache filling our world. It’s discouraging to see so much pain, suffering, sin, and sadness. But let’s not forget that these are mistakes of our own, not of God’s. Despite all our pitfalls, God still offers hope (Hebrews 6:11). God still offers peace (Philippians 4:6-7). God still offers love (John 3:16). God still offers salvation and forgiveness (Acts 2:38; 1 Peter 3:21). Without a doubt, the Lord is still good. And thankfully, He always was and always will be.
