God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning–the sixth day. Genesis 1:31
Businesses and people are making things every day all around the world. New products of nearly everything imaginable are being created for people to use.
As these are being made, some come out very good and become popular. Other things are not so good to even horrible and fail at gaining the desire of the people. When things fail or are not so good, some will attempt to improve them, sometimes succeeding, sometimes failing in the end.
Genesis begins with God creating everything that is. As He finishes creating everything on the sixth day, He sees that everything is not just good, but very good.
The world tends to think that God made some mistakes. It is common to hear people say that God made a mistake or was cruel when a baby is born with a deformity. Or that He made a mistake in allowing a person to get sick or die.
God makes everything in perfection, but many people forget that man messes things up. It is because of man’s sin that sickness, pain, and death occur on a regular basis.
All the sin of man does not negate the perfection of God’s work. Everything that God does is very good. It is done with a focus of giving life, the best life to each and every person.
Some will choose to believe God and follow His path to eternal and perfect life. They will see the goodness of God’s choices and path for their lives and walk in it.
Many will choose to reject God, believing that they know a better way to life and in the end will only bring death and destruction.
Despite all of the challenges in your life, God loves you and wants only the best for you. Just as much as God is out to build you up, the world is out to destroy you and tear you down.
Rather than blaming God for what the world is doing, trust God and follow Him. Know that He will never do anything that is not very good in light of eternity. Things may be painful in the moment, but it is only a very short momentary second in the face of eternal life with God someday.
Know that all that God does is very good.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will trust God’s work in your life; that you will see the goodness of all that God does; and that you will become more like Jesus every day.
