Word Study: Good

During my personal bible studies, I like to focus on one word and meditate on it. This week, I am meditating the word “Good”. The word “Good” is very common that at most times when someone asked how life is treating us, one would respond, “good” – even if they don’t feel good at all.

In Psalm:8, David is inviting us to come and see that the Lord is good; not the “good” definition of the world. He is inviting us to experience and encounter God’s divine goodness. The adjective good in the dictionary has several meanings and God’s goodness is never short of manifestation in a believer’s life; the goodness that surpasses our own understanding;  for His goodness and mercies are new every morning.

God is good all the time, we cannot take this away from His attributes. We may find ourselves in difficult situations, but God does not change. What we may view as something bad, may be viewed by God as something good for us, to mould us and transformed us to become more and more like Christ. God’s ways are higher than our ways, His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. But this one thing we can be sure of, despite the difficult times, we can take refuge to God, for He is good, all the time.
