Corrie Ten Boom once remarked about the goodness of God, saying
"God is good when He sends good weather, but God was also good when He allowed my sister, Betsie,to starve to death in a German concentration camp."
She remember when she was discouraged and told her sister that she felt God had forgotten them.
"No, Corrie," said Betsie,
"He has not forgotten us. Remember His Word: "For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him."
In that moment, Betsie taught Corrie about the reverential reflection of God's goodness, even in her darkest hour.
Often, we mistakenly believe that our circumstances reflect God's goodness and that if times are tough, God has turned away from us, but scripture tells us that He"..is the same yesterday, today and forever' (Hebrews 13:8);
His goodness is certainly no exception.
Whether you are struggling through a low point in life or experiencing showers of blessing, take time to meditate on Scripture that tells of His goodness and love, for it will surely strengthen and sustain you.
