The promise that God is good is repeated many times in Scripture. It is a repeated theme through the whole Bible. Here are a few examples:

“Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 5:16 (NIV2011)

Oh, that their hearts would be inclined to fear me and keep all my commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children forever! Deuteronomy 5:29 (NIV2011)

Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the LORD, the God of your ancestors, promised you. Deuteronomy 6:3 (NIV2011)

He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that in the end it might go well with you. Deuteronomy 8:16 (NIV2011)

Yet because the wicked do not fear God, it will not go well with them, and their days will not lengthen like a shadow. Ecclesiastes 8:13 (NIV2011)

Do you believe—really believe—that if you give part of your money away that it will go well with you? If not, the solution is not to try really hard to be generous. You must change your beliefs. You must be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Do you believe—really believe—that there is a throne in Heaven and Someone is sitting on it. (Revelation 4:2). Or, do you believe the world is running amuck. If you really believe the latter, trying really hard not to worry won’t help.
