God Is Good

Email problems turned into computer problems, so I haven’t been able to post here of late. But I was reminded this morning that God is good, and I know this is true regardless of the kind or severity of the problems we encounter. From A. W. Tozer’s The Knowledge of the Holy:

Always God’s goodness is the ground of our expectation. Repentance, though necessary, is not meritorious but a condition for receiving the gracious gift of pardon which God gives of His goodness. Prayer is not in itself meritorious. It lays God under no obligation nor puts Him in debt to any. He hears prayer because He is good, and for no other reason. Nor is faith meritorious; it is simply confidence in the goodness of God, and the lack of it is a reflection upon God’s holy character. (p. 89, emphasis mine)
