Here is the Daily Dose for Wednesday, October 23, 2019.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like the shifting shadows. James 1:17
God IS Good
“What kind of day is he having?” That was the question we would ask our boss’s assistant any time we had to go into his office. You needed to know the answer to that question before walking into his office because you never knew who was on the other side of the door. You see, our boss was the classic Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde. There were times that he was the absolute best boss ever. He was inspirational, kind, generous and supportive. But, there were other times when you could hear him from down the hall, berating another employee over some mistake or issue that may or may not have been in their control, but he was letting them have it anyway. The funny thing was, you could be dealing with Dr. Jeckle or Mr. Hyde not on any given day, but in any given hour on the same day. Hence, the question, “What kind of day is he having?”
Some people change like the wind. You never know if you are dealing with Jeckle or Hyde when dealing with them. If the conditions are right you get one personality, and if the conditions are wrong you get another personality. What makes these people especially difficult to deal with is the uncertainty of what they may do. So you are always anxious, always on edge, and always watching carefully for signs of who you are dealing with now. Not knowing who you are dealing with means you don’t know what you are going to get from them. Will it be love and happiness or will it be pain and anguish?
The glorious thing about God is, God is good. Read that again, God is good. At all times, in all ways and in all situations, God is good. When you know that God is good you always know what to expect from him, goodness. Every time something good comes into your life you know it came from God because God is good. God does not have bad days, off days, mood swings or shifting sands, so you always know what you are going to get when you go to him, goodness. So no matter your circumstance or your situation take it to God and it will turn out for your good simply because God is good.
