God is GOOD

God has a signature mark and it is ‘GOOD’. Jeremiah 29:11 describes God’s plan for us as GOOD, and this is echoed in the pages of Scripture.  

The account in Genesis 1 is on creation, and God’s signature mark is consistent:

Day 1 — on the first day God created the light … and God saw the light, that it was GOOD

Day 2 — God created the earth and the seas … and God saw that it was GOOD

Day 3 – God created the grass and trees … and God saw that it was GOOD.

Day 4 – God created the sun and the moon… and God saw that it was GOOD.

Day 5 — God created the creatures of sea and air … and God saw that it was GOOD.

Day 6 — God created the beasts … and God saw that it was GOOD. God created humans on the same day and they were made in His image.

Verse 31 summarizes, “And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very GOOD.”

 God’s slogan is IT IS GOOD. Goodness stems from His character, His flawlessness, His inability to be anything other than good. The word ‘good’ means of ‘of a favorable character or tendency.’  Hence it is consistent with God’s nature to have plans for us that are GOOD.
