believing the best about the Best!

Sometimes our doubts shout lies about God. Sometimes our minds find questions about His ways. Sometimes our hearts part from His truth. Sometimes our fears smear spiritual reality. And so, we find ourselves confused, careless and even callous, all because of a big misunderstanding on our part.

This is why it is always absolutely necessary to decide to believe the best about God. Why? Because He is the best of beings! [Jonathan Edwards]

Think about it. Even during the worst of times, we try to believe the best about certain people. Why? Because we remember the qualities in them that we love. We naturally appreciate and admire generosity, truth and goodness. If we do this with fallen human creatures (who show these qualities imperfectly), how much more should we do this with our holy Creator (Who possesses and proves these qualities perfectly)?

So, we must fight the night with the light, the dark with the spark of His truth! How? By considering His character! Here's just three to start a countless list of "His best" qualities -

He owes no man anything, but gives generously to all. He loves to share!
"Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?" Romans 11:35
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights." James 1:17

He is always right, and He always does the right thing. He's always fair!
"Should not the Judge of all the earth do what is right?" Genesis 18:25
"For the word of the LORD is right and true." Psalm 33:4

He is always good, and He is good to all. He loves to care!
"You are good, and what You do is good." Psalm 119:68
"The LORD is good to all, and His mercy is over all that He has made." Psalm 145:9
