God's Goodness and His Provision

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing. (Psalm 34:8-10)

Take note that God declares Himself as good and then connects His goodness to the fact that He provides for His children.

If I neglected my family by never working or taking care of them then there is no one who would call me a good father or husband, and rightfully so. I would be considered a bad man. Even the Scriptures themselves would declare me worse than an infidel (1 Timothy 5:8).

The problem with most Christians is that we believe that God has double-standards and that He can act in ways that He would forbid us to act in while still claiming to be good. Beloved, God would not be good if He did not provide for His loved ones. Again, He connects His goodness to His provision and we have no right to disconnect it.

Our faith is strengthened by the fact that God is good, and we can taste and see this by trusting Him to take care of every need. Because he is good it is within His very nature to supply our need. If we are not seeing God’s provision then He is not at fault nor should He be blamed. The defect is with our faith.
