We Should Love and Trust God Because of His Goodness
Adventure 3: The Goodness of God
How can you please God, Who is perfectly good?
By grace, through faith, I can trust God, obey His Word, and love Him more than I love anything or anyone else. Deuteronomy 13:3b-4 – The LORD your God is testing you to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall walk after the LORD your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him.
This Truth Makes
If we do not or cannot believe that God is perfectly good, then we will try to find something or someone else to trust to meet our needs and desires. God repeatedly commands us to trust in Him, and He shows us His perfectly good character to help us understand that there is no one better than Him in whom to place our trust.
God is worthy to be trusted. In fact, nobody
or no thing is more worthy than God. The wisest thing in the whole wide world anyone can do is to trust the Lord. Have you done that? Are you doing that?
Psalm 34:22 – The LORD redeems the soul of His servants, And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.
Psalm 37:5 – Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.
