• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outleet and safe community to be apart of.

God Is Good—All The Time!

‘Examine and see how good the Lord is. Happy is the person who trusts Him.’ Psalm 34:8 NCV

The psalmist said, ‘Examine and see how good the Lord is.’ Pay particular attention to the words ‘examine’ and ‘good’. What you believe about God manifests itself in the way you live. What does it mean to be ‘good’? It means living up to the best you know. And since God is omniscient (all-knowing), He knows what your best is!

His goodness is beyond all question. Because God is good—not nice nor tolerant, but really, practically, consistently good—your cup of well-being, security, peace, confidence and joy can be overflowing! A good God cannot break His promise, abandon His children, or fail to love and bless them. You can be sure that in every circumstance He will treat you in the best possible way. When your life seems to be falling apart, sometimes it’s difficult to see God’s goodness or feel that things will get better. That’s when you must use the faith God has already given you, and by an act of your will, trust Him (see Romans 12:3).

A wise pastor was asked by a troubled parishioner, ‘Pastor, does the world look like a wreck to you too?’

He replied, ‘Yes, like the wreck of a bursting seed!’

Without undergoing the ‘wreck’ stage, during which its world literally falls apart, the acorn could never give life to an oak tree. So embrace God’s will in this trial because it’s ‘good, acceptable and perfect’ (Romans 12:2 ESV), regardless of how it feels to you right now. Ultimately, you’ll ‘see how good the Lord is. Happy is the person who trusts in him’!
