God Is Truly Good

An Everlasting Covenant To Do Us Good

And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, promising not to stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me. I will rejoice in doing good to them and I will faithfully and wholeheartedly replant them in this land.” (Jeremiah 32:40-41, NLT)

He will not withhold to us what is good

For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11, KJV)

Everything that is given to us by God is good

Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God above…” (James 1:17, NLT)

Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it.” (1 Timothy 4:4, NLT)

Everything that He allows to happen is with a good purpose

I have sent them into captivity for their own good. I will see that they are well treated, and I will bring them back again here” (Jeremiah 24:6, NLT)

But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.” (John 16:7, NIV)

Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” (Hebrews 12:10-11, NIV)

We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. Job is an example of a man who endured patiently. From his experience we see how the Lord’s plan finally ended in good, for he is full of tenderness and mercy.” (James 5:11, NLT)

Because all things work together for good to those who love God.

But Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid of me. Am I God, that I can punish you? 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people. (Genesis 50:20, NLT)

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28, NLT)

“Truly, God is good to Israel [His people]” (Psalm 73:1)
