Every believer will have to decide for himself if God is truly good. His goodness does not depend on how few trials or hard times weve had in our lives. It depends on us embracing and loving Him. The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth will lead us back and guide us not just to have knowledge of His goodness, but to have hands on experience. God's  claim of goodness is so important to Him, that we are invited to taste and see for ourselves. We have to lean and trust in His goodness in every situation. So I know God is good He will always be for us and not against us. No matter what trials come our way. He will always come to our aid. Everlasting Goodness is His name.

1 PET 2:3 Once youve tasted pure grace, you are spoild for life! Grace rules! The Lordship of Jesus is established upon the dynamic of his goodness.

4 The irresistible attraction seen in him, the living stone, is not at all compromised by the fact that man-made religious structures rejected him; he is esteemed most precious and remains the original and pivotal idea of God!

Ex 33:19 And God said, I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim My name, THE LORD, before you; for I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy and loving-kindness on whom I will show mercy and loving-kindness.  AMP

2 COR 9:10 The inventor of seed and bread is also the one who supplies and multiplies your resources and increases the harvest of your righteousness! 

11 You are mutually enriched in every possible sense of the word and inseparably joined to one another in an undivided heart, without any hidden agenda. And together we, the conduit of your gifts, will set the stage for a joyous grace celebration to God!  

12 This is such a win-win situation: not only are the saints endorsed in their I-am-ness through this most practical translation of your generosity, but it also causes an abundant overflow of great gratitude to God as the testimony of his goodness finds tangible expression in your gifts!

13 And so the ripple effect continues! The gospel you communicate has found a very articulate voice in your giving and produces a rich harvest of glory to God. Your union with them further communicates the all-inclusive nature of the koinonia we all participate in.   MIRROR

2 COR 5:21 This is the divine exchange: he who knew no sin embraced our distortion; he appeared to be without form; this was the mystery of Gods prophetic poetry. He was disguised in our distorted image and marred with our iniquities; he took our sorrows, our pain and our shame to his grave and birthed his righteousness in us. He took our sins and we became his innocence.  MIRROR

Titus 3:3 For we also were once thoughtless and senseless, obstinate and disobedient, deluded and misled; [we too were once] slaves to all sorts of cravings and pleasures, wasting our days in malice and jealousy and envy, hateful (hated, detestable) and hating one another.

4 But when the goodness and loving-kindness of God our Savior to man [as man] appeared,

6 Which He poured out [so] richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.

7 [And He did it in order] that we might be justified by His grace (by His favor, wholly undeserved), [that we might be acknowledged and counted as conformed to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action], and that we might become heirs of eternal life according to [our] hope. AMP

5 he saved us from all that. It was all his doing; we had nothing to do with it. He gave us a good bath, and we came out of it new people, washed inside and out by the Holy Spirit.

7 God's gift has restored our relationship with him and given us back our lives. And there's more life to come an eternity of life! MSG
