How good do you believe and know God is? What does Scripture say about his goodness to his people? Are we willing to surrender to him and the rest he offers?

How Good Is Your God?

In his goodness, God grants everyone the opportunity to enter into his rest

“Do you believe in the goodness of God? In other words, what do you believe is God’s predisposition towards me? What do you feel is God’s posture towards you? My guess is that we may fall into one of two camps. On the one hand we are actually indifferent at that question, on the other hand some of us may be despondent at that question.”
