Quotes About God’s Goodness

But as for me, how good is it to be near God! I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.

Psalm 73:28

For God is good – or rather, of all goodness He is the Fountainhead.

Athanasius of Alexandria

Mornings are considered the perfect time to pray. It is when you get a fresh start and just meditate on the goodness of God in your life.

Rebecca Small

If God has done what you think he should do, trust him. If God doesn’t do what you think he should do, trust him. If you pray and believe God for a miracle and he does it, trust him. If your worst nightmare comes true, believe he is sovereign. Believe he is good.

Craig Groeschel

Grace (the Gospel) is under attack today simply because it reveals the GOODNESS of God. Nothing reveals the GOODNESS of God more than grace.

John Paul Warren

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.

Nahum 1:7

The only real, practical measure of my apprehension for the goodness and mercy of God to me is the extent to which I am, in turn, prepared to show goodness and mercy to others.

Phillip Keller

A grateful heart is like a sponge that soaks up God’s goodness.

Joel Osteen

God’s goodness is but the inclination and resolve of His nature to promote the welfare and happiness of His creatures. This more general attribute of goodness may be manifested in the delay of penal judgment, in which case we speak of God’s longsuffering. God’s goodness as manifested in the restoration of the wretched is what the Bible calls mercy. Likewise, God’s goodness as manifested toward the guilty and undeserving is referred to in Scripture as grace.

Sam Storms

When a blind man says, ‘God is good,’ this should be an eye-opener to those who can see.

Anthony Liccione

God’s goodness is stronger than any evil!

Pope Francis

Remembering the goodness of God in the past, will help us in seasons where it’s harder to see Him.

Esther Fleece

The words ‘good’ and ‘love’ have become so trivialized in our culture – not that our definitions were so accurate to begin with – that, in times of distress or disappointment, we struggle to believe that God is either.

Ron Brackin

My dear children, I am very anxious that you should know something about the History of Jesus Christ. For everybody ought to know about Him. No one ever lived, who was so good, so kind, so gentle, and so sorry for all people who did wrong, or were in anyway ill or miserable, as he was.

Charles Dickens

My life is filled with great excitement for the goodness of the Lord.

Lailah GiftyAkita

To question the goodness of God is, in essence, to imply that man is more concerned about goodness than is God… To suggest that man is kinder than God is to subvert…the very nature of God… It is to deny God; and this is precisely the thrust of the temptation to question the goodness of God.

Philip Hughes

Because God is good, we have an infinite number of reasons to praise him in our homes.

Gloria Furman

We were created to be expressions of the goodness and wholeness of God.

Erwin McManus

God’s goodness is that He is the perfect sum, source, and standard (for Himself and His creatures) of that which is wholesome (conducive to well-being), virtuous, beneficial, and beautiful.

John MacArthur

Faith is a simple believing in and confidence in Love and His goodness toward us.

Catherine Toon

Living in joy is choosing to celebrate God’s grace and goodness and favor toward you. It’s taking pleasure in who God is for you, being confident in who you are in Him, and intentionally seeing others for the joy God has for them.

Rob Coscia

Pleasure is good in itself, and great pleasures are to be particularly valued, for they are signs of the goodness of God. The best pleasures are shared. Yet it is not necessary to our human flourishing that we have any of them in particular. The traditional Christian teaching is that the goodness of sexual union lies in marriage, but one who does not experience this good has no more a diminishment of human flourishing than a person who never jumps out of an airplane.

Victor Lee Austin

The difficulty over the question of eternal torments lies in how it is irreconcilable with the Goodness of God.

Samuel Clarke

God’s goodness is near us. It is not a goodness far away, but God follows us with His goodness in whatever situation we are. He attaches Himself to us, He has made Himself close, that He might be near us in goodness. He is a father, and everywhere to maintain us. He is a husband, and everywhere to help. He is a friend, and everywhere to comfort and counsel. His love is a near love. He has taken upon Himself the closest kinds of relationships, so that we may never lack God and the evidences of His love.

Richard Sibbes

The Bible tells us that God knows the end from the beginning, and He has predestined His good into your life.

Eddie Snipes

Believe! Believe in the limitless supply of God’s goodness. The universe is filled with more wonders than you can imagine.

Wilferd Peterson

There would be no manifestation of God’s grace or true goodness, if there was no sin to be pardoned, no misery to be saved from.

Jonathan Edwards

The pleasures of this world are rather from God’s goodness than our own merit. Benjamin Franklin
We have to grasp that God’s goodness is true and beautiful.

Matt Brown

Men are afraid to have good thoughts of God. They think it is a boldness to eye God as good, gracious, tender, kind, loving. I speak of saints. They can judge Him hard, austere, severe, almost implacable, and fierce (the very worst affections of the very worst of men, and most hated by God). Is not this soul-deceit from Satan? Was it not his design from the beginning to inject such thoughts of God? Assure yourself, then, there is nothing more acceptable to the Father than for us to keep up our hearts unto Him as the eternal fountain of all that rich grace which flows out to sinners in the blood of Jesus.

John Owen

Truly God is good to Israel, to those whose hearts are pure.

Psalm 73:1

What is “good?” “Good” is what God approves. We may ask then, why is what God approves good? We must answer, “Because He approves it.” That is to say, there is no higher standard of goodness than God’s own character and His approval of whatever is consistent with that character.

Wayne Grudem

How merciful is our God. How kind. How patient. How reluctant to judge and how desirous to save!

Gavin Cox

God is good to us, that’s true: But we think there are happier days for us In the life we’re going to.

Edward H. Donnelly

God’s mercy is His goodness toward those in distress, His grace in His goodness toward those who deserve only punishment, and His patience in His goodness toward those who continue to sin over a period of time.

Wayne Grudem

God is the absolute good (Mark 10:18; Luke 18:19). As such He cannot be pleased with anything short of absolute perfection. Hence, in an ultimate sense He can be pleased with only Himself. Consequently, when He loves His creatures, He loves them with a chief regard to Himself.

John MacArthur

God is goodness itself, in whom all goodness is involved. If therefore we love other things for the goodness which we see in them, why do we not love God, in whom is all goodness? All other things are but sparks of that fire, and drops of that sea. If you see any good in the creature, remember there is much more in the Creator. Leave therefore the streams, and go to the fountainhead of comfort.

Richard Sibbes
