God's Goodness

"Gos's gifts are always better than Satan's bargains." Warren Wiersbe

1. The Unfailing COMPASSION of God.

A. His AWESOME love.
"The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all he has made." Psalm 145:8

B. His ABUNDANT mercy.
"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion therefore I will wait for him, to the one who seeks him.' Lam. 3:22-23

C. His AMAZING grace.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.

D. His ABSOLUTE faithfulness.
The Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3
2. The Unchangeable CHARACTER of God.

"I the Lord do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed." Malachi 3:6

"God is not a man, that he shold lie, not a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?" Numbers 23:19

"We have little control over the circumstances of life. We can't control the weather or the economy, and we can't control what other people say about or do to us. There is only one area where we have control--we can rule the kingdom inside. The heart of every problem is the problem in the heart." Warren Wiersbe

"When it seems as if God is far away, remind yourself that He is near. Nearness is not a matter of geography. God is everywhere. Nearness is likeness. The more we become like the Lord, the nearer He is to us." Warren Wiersbe
