The Goodness Of God
By J. Hudson Taylor
All God's dealings are full of blessing. He is good, and doeth good, good only, and continually. The believer who has taken the Lord as his Shepherd can assuredly say in the words of the psalmist: "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life" (Psa. 23:6). Hence we may be sure that days of adversity, as well as days of prosperity, are full of blessing. The believer does not need to wait until he sees the reason of God's afflictive dealings with him ere he be satisfied. He knows that all things work together for good to them that love God (Rom. 8:28).
