GOD IS INFINITELY GOOD
God is GOOD, and NOT EVIL!
He is altogether GOOD, there’s NO TRACE OF EVIL IN HIM!
God is superlative GOODNESS.
When Moses asked to see God’s Shekinah GLORY, His COVERING, hear what God told Him:
“And the Lord said, “I will cause all my GOODNESS to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have MERCY on whom I will have mercy, and I will have COMPASSION on whom I will have compassion.”
Moses asked, show me Your Covering Glory. And God told him, okay I will. Then He shows Moses His GOODNESS; His MERCY, His COMPASSION, His GRACE, His LOVING-KINDNESS ???
What does that tell you?
God’s GLORY is His manifest GOODNESS!
He is covered, clothed in GOODNESS; in MERCY, in COMPASSION, in GRACE, in LOVING-KINDNESS.
The next thing God told Moses was that I AM going to declare My Name to your hearing. God’s
Name here encapsulates His Nature and Character.
So God Himself passed before Moses and declared His Name; Nature and Character as:
“GOD, GOD, a God of MERCY and GRACE, endlessly PATIENT – so much LOVE, so deeply TRUE – LOYAL IN LOVE for a thousand generations, FORGIVING iniquity, rebellion, and sin. Still, he doesn’t ignore sin. He holds sons and grandsons responsible for a father’s sins to the third and even fourth generation.”
~Exodus 34:6-7, MSG
Jehovah is GOD. He is the LORD. The LORD merciful and gracious, slow to get angry, so deeply true, faithful in love for a thousand generations. Readily forgiving, just and holy, and not ignoring sin!
All of this is covered in His GOODNESS.
The GOODNESS of God is the drive behind all the BLESSINGS – MERCY, FORGIVENESS, PROVISION, GRACE, PROTECTION, HEALING – He daily showers on us! (Psalm 103)
All that He does to us, He does because He is GOOD.
God CREATED us according to His GOOD PLEASURE; we exist because He felt GOOD in His heart to create us.
And He redeemed us because He is GOOD.
It’s my prayer that your faith will become securely founded on the truth that God is infinitely GOOD. Amen!
