Job 34, 35
Focus Verse: Of a truth, God will not do wickedly, and the Almighty will not pervert justice. – Job 34:12

God is good.

The idea of engaging in wickedness is far from Him. The thought of doing wrong never crosses His mind. Not only does God not want to do wickedly or act unjustly; He will not do so, cannot do so.

Even when you do wrong, God is good.

Even when bad things happen, God is good.

Even when injustice takes place and darkness blots out light, God is good.

Even when you cannot see His glory or feel His grace or experience His goodness, God is still good.

Everything that God has ever done, is doing now, and will do in the future, is a result of His goodness. His afflictions are not meant to harm, but to heal. His wrath is wrapped in love. His judgment is a reflection of His righteous character. God is so good that He brings good out of evil, beautifulness out of brokenness, peace out of pain.

God is good all the time. And all the time, God is good.

Truly, God will not do wrong. The Almighty will not twist justice.
