I have the same problem as a lot of Christians. God decides to bless me with something in life and I (figuratively and sometimes literally) raise my hands and shout “Hallelujah!”, “God is good!”
But then….maybe God decides to either remove that blessing or not continue blessing me….and my hands slowly fall back to my sides. God doesn’t seem so good anymore.
We’re getting it all wrong. Why do we base God’s goodness on whether He blesses us or not?
