TEXT: PSALM 136:1-6
(1) O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
(2) O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.
(3) O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.
(4) To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.
5 To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.
6 To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.
KEY VERSE: GENESIS 3:21
Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
Goodness is one of the attributes of God that has been clearly made manifest in Scriptures. Right from the time of creation, God demonstrated His goodness to man; Adam and Eve, the only creatures whom the Lord made in His own image deliberately disobeyed Him. The immediate consequences of the fall of man were the consciousness of his physical nakedness and the shame thereof, fear of God’s judgment and hiding of self from God.
God saw that man has brought shame upon himself. He demonstrated His goodness by covering man’s nakedness. However, the goodness and judgment of God go hand in hand. Romans 11:22 says, “Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.” Never take God’s goodness for granted and remain a sinner. He will cut you off from eternal life.
In our text, however, it is obvious that the goodness of God finds expression in His mercy. It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness (Lamentation 3:22-23). God renews His mercy plan for unbelievers and backsliders daily and waits patiently for any who will wisely take advantage of this provision to enjoy forgiveness of sins and cleansing from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
He foreordained man for salvation and holy living from the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:3-6). God’s protection and preservation of man and much more are all proofs of His goodness. In view of this, you should be able to delete whatever picture of God the devil might have painted in your mind. He painted God as unfair to Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:1-5) but presented himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14). God is forever good to you and to all.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Repent now while the goodness and mercy of God last.
