The scripture for today is 2 Samuel 7:22 NRSV.
“Therefore, you are great, O LORD God; for there is no one like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.”
God is Good … All the Time!
All the Time … God is Good!
The other day I heard about a woman, her loving husband and two small children. The perfect family. The perfect life. She just recently found out she is dying from breast cancer. Her response? “Life isn’t fair … BUT … God is Good!”
The Struggle is Real … AND … God is Good … All the Time!
The struggle was real for my uncle, called home by God three years ago. Cancer had taken his throat and more. During the last few years of his life here on earth his body was weak, but his faith never failed. With support from a mechanical device he would greet friends, family and colleagues with “God is Good All the Time!” And we/they would say, “All the Time, God is Good!”
Our God is an Awesome God!
I was sitting with a woman about an hour before she passed from this world to spend eternity with God in heaven. She said to me, “I’m ready. I don’t know why He hasn’t taken me yet.” She knew there is only one God … and shared with me His Love is a Forever Love.
There is no God like You!
My mom suffered through a whole host of complications (sepsis, fluid overload, and more) in the hospital last summer, originating from a sizable kidney stone that needed to be surgically removed. At one point, early-on in this ordeal, mom said she saw the light. Her words: “It was white, bright and very good!” She tells her story often and to many people. Through the story, she shares God’s Forever Love.
Dear Lord, There is no God besides You! We await Your Coming! Halleluiah!
