Far Greater Truths

There's a lot of hurt out there right now. A lot of sadness. A lot of difficulty and tough situations. So many people I know are angry, worried, stressed, exhausted.

But we have to remember... GOD IS GOOD.

He is good and He is in control. No matter what it looks like from our perspective, that's the Truth. And we can choose to dwell on the facts of our situation and the way it makes us feel (far lessor truths, as Pastor Kyle would say) or we can shift to dwelling on far greater Truths: God is good. God is in control. God loves me. God is sovereign. Oh how many there are! And oh how much greater they are!
Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
   for his steadfast love endures forever!  -Psalm 107:1 
We may not understand. And His ways may not seem right or good. BUT THEY ARE. The Bible says they are and we have to believe that. God is infinitely greater than me. I have to trust that He knows better than I do what is good.
A great many things in God's divine providences do not look like goodness to the eye...  But faith sits down before mysteries such as these, and says, "The Lord is good, therefore all that He does must be good, no matter how it looks, and  I can wait for His explanations." - Hannah Whitall Smith
