Goodness of God

Bethel Music (Jenn Johnson, Jason Ingram, Ben Fielding, Ed Cash, and Brian Johnson)


All throughout scripture, we read of God’s goodness in beautifully penned phrases. Here are a few of my favorites:


Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34


Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6


I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13


I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works. Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, and I will declare Your greatness. They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness, and shall sing of Your righteousness. Psalm 145:5-7


It’s not just that God does good things for us - which He does! But, who God is IS good. He is good. He is good and worthy to be praised. He is good and can be trusted. He is good and His goodness pursues us, not wanting anyone to be without Him (2 Peter 3:9). He is good and gives good gifts to His children (Matthew 7:7-11). Despite any mood, trial, or changing circumstance, this eternal God is eternally good.

Stop today and spend time reflecting on His goodness. This good God lavishes His love on us, calling us His own children (1 John 3:1). Nothing we could ever do could possibly separate us from His love; HIs goodness (Romans 8:38-39). This compels me to worship Him! Out of the deepest parts of my heart, I can truly sing, “All my life, You have been faithful. All my life, You have been so, so good. With every breath that I am able, I will sing of the goodness of God.”


I love You, Lord

Oh, Your mercy never fails me

All my days I’ve been held in Your hands

From the moment that I wake up, until I lay my head

I will sing of the goodness of God


I love Your voice

You have led me through the fire

In darkest night, You’ve been close like no other

I’ve known you as a Father, I’ve known you as a Friend

And I have lived in the goodness of God


All my life You have been faithful

All my life, You have been so, so good

With ev’ry breath that I am able

I will sing of goodness of God


Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me

Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me

With my life laid down, I’m surrendered now

I give You everything

‘Cuz Your goodness is running after me
