Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah
God is a good God. But what exactly does it mean to say that God is good? More and more as I explored the meaning of this term in the Bible, one essential theme appeared to stand out: God’s goodness is accompanied by His generosity. It is true that His kindness encompasses much more than His generosity, yet it is undeniably characterized by His unlimited generosity toward us. He desires, by nature, to impart happiness and blessing to all of His creations. The Bible consistently portrays kindness as a fundamental characteristic of our Lord, and I wanted to highlight just 23 of those instances.
- Abounding in goodness and truth, the Lord God is kind and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in mercy and grace. The Lord is excellent, says Exodus 34:6
- Give thanks to the Lord, because He is good! Because God’s kindness continues forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34
- And they responded enthusiastically, praising and giving thanks to the Lord, singing, “For He is good, for His compassion continues eternally toward Israel,” according to the text. Ezra 3:11 says that the Lord is kind and upright. I know that love and mercy will follow me throughout the days of my life, and I will dwell in the home of the Lord for all of eternity, according to Psalm 25:8. It says in Psalm 23:6 that the Lord is kind to everyone and that His tender mercies are over all His handiwork. Psalm 145:9 says that there is only One who is good, and that is God. According to Mark 10:18, “Every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from on high, and comes from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change or shadow of turning.” James 1:17
- If you, who are wicked, are able to give good gifts to your children, imagine how much more your heavenly Father will do the same for those who ask Him to do so! The Bible says in Matthew 7:11 that I would have lost heart if I had not trusted that I would be able to see God’s goodness in the land of the living. My thoughts shall be on the beautiful beauty of Your majesty, and on Your amazing wonders, according to Psalm 27:13. Men will extol the power of Your mighty deeds, and I will extol the magnificence of Your glory. Their words will be filled with the recollection of Your great goodness, and their songs will be filled with the praise of Your justice. God loves righteousness and justice, and the land is overflowing with the goodness of the Lord, according to Psalm 145:5-7. O taste and see that the Lord is good
- Fortunate is the man who places his confidence in Him, says Psalm 33:5a. Psalm 34:8 says to express gratitude to God and to bless His name. Because the Lord is gracious, and His kindness endures forever. If only people might offer thanks to the Lord for His benevolence and for His wondrous works among the children of mankind, as expressed in Psalm 100:4-5! Because He fills the hungry spirit with goodness and satisfies the desiring soul with goodness. 107:8-9
- Just like a parent feels sorry for his children, the Lord feels sorry for people who fear Him. Because He is aware of our physical frame, and He is mindful of the fact that we are dust. Learn to accomplish Your will, for You are my God and Your Spirit is good, according to Psalm 103:13-14. Please lead me to the realm of uprightness and justice. According to Psalm 143:10, “The Lord is upright
- He is my rock, and in Him there is no wickedness.” 15: You are excellent, and you do good
- Teach me Your precepts, says Psalm 92:15 According to Psalm 119:68, You also gave them Your excellent Spirit to educate them, and You did not withhold Your manna from their lips, nor did You deprive them of water to quench their thirst. Hear me, O Lord, because Your lovingkindness is great
- Turn to me in accordance with the abundance of Your gentle mercies, which are many. Psalm 69:16 says that the Lord is gracious, a refuge in times of sorrow, and that He knows those who put their confidence in Him. In the face of the sons of mankind, Oh, how vast is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You have planned for those who place their confidence in You! Keep them hidden in a pavilion away from the machinations of men, away from the squabbling of tongues. You will keep them hidden in a pavilion away from the machinations of men. Verse 19 and 20 of Psalm 31
15All day long, my tongue will be filled with stories of your virtuous actions and rescuing acts—even though I have no idea how to recount them all. 16I will come and announce your wonderful actions, Sovereign LORD; I will come and proclaim your upright deeds, which are only yours to proclaim. 17God, you have educated me since I was a child, and I continue to proclaim your mighty acts to this day. Until I am old and gray, my God, please do not abandon me until I have spoken your greatness to the next generation, your magnificent deeds to those who are yet to come.
Who else can compare to you, God?
21You will restore my honor and provide peace to me once more.
23When I sing praise to you, my lips will scream with delight because I am the one whom you have delivered. 24All day long, my mouth will speak of your good deeds, for those who sought to hurt me have been humiliated and confounded by your actions.

“O give thanks to the LORD, for He is gracious; for His loving kindness endures forever.” “O give thanks to the LORD, for He is gracious.”
In the words of the apostle Paul, “Every good thing provided and every perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no fluctuation or changing shadow.”
“Or do you disdain the riches of His goodness, patience, and long suffering, not seeing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?” “Do you hate the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and long suffering?”
The Bible says, “And we know that God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.”
As Paul says in Romans 12:2, “And do not conform to this world, but be converted by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test what God’s will, that which is good and acceptable and perfect, is.”
Sermon: The Goodness of God – Psalm 145, 107
Psalm 145 and Psalm 107 are examples of scriptures.
Please lend me your ears for the following two stories, and see if you can identify the common factor that unites them all. The first of them is one of those rip-roaring-good parables that Jesus spoke about our heavenly Father in the Bible. Once upon a time, there was a wealthy guy who, one morning in the wee hours of the morning, decided to pay a visit to the marketplace, which was the old equivalent of a job center. While he was there, he recruited a group of men to work in his vineyard at a fee that had been agreed upon.
- In fact, according to Jesus’ account, the owner of the vineyard employed additional laborers right up to the time of the harvest.
- As the last rays of sunlight vanished from the sky, the employees gathered to get their wages.
- And it was at this point that Jesus dropped a bombshell into the narrative.
- It was the equivalent of one day’s earnings.
- A quiet murmur could be heard among those who had been employed first thing in the morning.
- We were dealt a bad hand.
- We completed the majority of the job today.
“However, you treated them as equals in the workplace!” It was Jesus who spoke these words into the owner of the vineyard’s mouth: “Didn’t we come to an agreement together on how much I would pay you?
But please do not criticize my desire to be kind!
Final examinations were scheduled for that day.
Everyone in the room was preparing for the exam at the last minute.
The most of it was well-known, but there were a few items that no one could recall hearing before.
The moment has come to put everything to the test.
I want you to hear this in Denise’s own words: “I couldn’t believe it!
My name was even written on the exam in red ink.” A wordless stir traveled like a wave over the class as each student looked at their completed exam.
You will receive an A on the final exam.
All the work you did in preparation for this test did not help you get the A.” (Denise Banderman, Hannibal, Missouri; cited in PreachingToday.com, “Professor Takes Students’ Test for Them”) Now, consider what you have heard.
There was the story of an already-completed exam that gave every student an undeserved “A.” What do these stories have in common?
Can I tell you something?
There isn’t a single person in this room who hasn’t experienced outrageous, lavish, unexpected, undeserved kindness.
They are poured out over us constantly.
If you want to see God for Who He really is, here’s a good starting point.
34:8) “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise!
For the Lord is good and His love is eternal, and His faithfulness endures to all generations.” (Ps.
“Show me as much as I can stand, Lord.” So what did God show him.
God showed Him something so wonderful and accessible that it caused the skin of Moses’ face to glow with the radiance of God’s presence. He showed him His goodness.
I. God’s goodness defined
It’s something we sing about and mention a lot. But do we really grasp the significance of this quality of God? This morning, please join me in contemplating the kindness of God. God’s kindness is defined in the Bible in two different ways. One is concerned with His personality, while the other is concerned with His conduct. When it states of God in Psalm 119:68, “You are good, and You do what is good.,” it expresses both aspects of his character. It is the first part of the passage that emphasizes the reality that God is, by his own nature, good.
- But, because we’re dealing about God here, the goodness that has been attributed to Him is elevated to the highest conceivable level of perfection.
- He is good in and of himself.
- We consider goodness to be an additional characteristic.
- God is not just the greatest of all beings; He is also the most excellent.
- (Matthew 10:18) All types of things are deemed nice by us – “This steak is delicious.
- That was an excellent film.” However, whatever we refer to as “good” on this planet is contaminated and flawed.
- Nevertheless, how can one discern a person’s genuine character?
As a result, the second strand in the description of God’s goodness focuses on what He really accomplishes.
God’s disposition is to provide to human beings in excess of their merit, all of the time.
You can’t believe that when He looks at you, despite the fact that you’ve got a lot of baggage, a lot of garbage, a lot of hang-ups, He says, “I’d like to be generous with you in return.
God is on your side.
He’s right there, hatching a plan to do you good.
But it’s possible that you won’t be able to make it this morning.
Perhaps your circumstances are so ordinary, your life so difficult, and your alternatives so limited that the phrase “God is good” rings hollow in your ears. Allow me to assist you in seeing through the spectacles that the Bible provides.
II. How God reveals His goodness
Allow me to share with you three distinct routes via which God communicates His benevolence to us.
A. Natural blessings
This is the most basic level at which He communicates His kindness, yet it is the one that we are most prone to overlooking or dismissing. David, on the other hand, saw it plainly. Psalm 145 is a song of praise that celebrates God’s kindness as it is shown in the created order, and it was inspired by God to be written. In verses 3 and 4, he exclaims, “Yahweh is magnificent and much exalted; the depths of His glory are unfathomable. Your handiwork will be passed down from one generation to the next, and Your magnificent deeds will be proclaimed.” In addition, verses 7-9 outline what the elder generation would say to the younger generation: “They will bear witness to Your great goodness and will gladly sing of Your righteousness as a result of their experiences.
” Anyone and everyone is encompassed by the term “everyone.” You certainly are.
The next verses (15-17) tell us more about His goodness: “All eyes are on You, and You ensure that they receive their meals on time.
When it comes to His ways, the Lord is righteous, and He is kind in all that He does.” Every connection, every job, every tree, every delicious bite of food that we enjoy, every bird’s song, every friend, every flower, and every field are all reminders of His love for us and His compassion for the world.
B. Kind interventions
Psalm 107 is entirely devoted to this subject, and it begins with a joyful declaration: “Don’t forget to give thanks to the Lord because He is good, and His steadfast love endures forever. Let the Lord’s redeemed people announce that He has rescued them from the clutches of their adversary.” The psalmist then goes on to explain four distinct circumstances in which God kindly intervenes to demonstrate His greatness. I don’t have time to go into detail on each one, so I’ll just mention a few: God comes to the aid of those who are anxiously looking for anything or someone who can satisfy their spiritual needs.
- God intervenes in the lives of individuals who have rebelled against God’s Word and have suffered as a result of their actions.
- God intervenes on the behalf of His goodness in the lives of stupid people who have given themselves over to sin and are experiencing the death-dealing consequences of their actions in their relationships and in their daily lives.
- He cures them and restores them to health by reversing the destructive effects of sin in their life.
- In times of need, when the storms threaten to drown us and we’re at our wit’s end, we may call out to Him and see Him tell the storms to be still because he is good and He is faithful.
He’s been there for you in ways you’ll never be able to comprehend. Whatever position you find yourself in this morning, God is the most appropriate person to turn to for help. You cannot find a more dependable source of deliverance or blessing than in Him, for He is good at all times.
C. Through God’s Son, Jesus
God was happy to have all of His fullness dwell in Him, as stated in Colossians 1:15, and God was glad to have all of His fullness dwell in Him, as stated in Colossians 2:14. (v. 19). Jesus is the manifestation of God’s goodness in the flesh. Using three different methods, he emphasized God’s desire to pour down blessings, assistance, and deliverance on us. 1. He accepted the punishment that our crimes deserved and bore it upon Himself. “God demonstrates His own love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners,” according to Romans 5:8.
- His death on the cross for us is the unmistakable embodiment of unmerited goodness.
- I’m not deserving of it.
- God, on the other hand, is good.
- As a result, He sends His Son to die in our place, so granting eternal life to everyone who believe in Him.
- He incorporates a slew of other things in the gift of Himself that we can only imagine.
- Every every tiny element that will assist you in living a godly life through thick and thin is included in that gift as a thank you.
- Jesus reveals God’s goodness to us in fresh and unexpected ways.
- That is, all of God’s excellent and perfect gifts are made available to us as a result of our connection with Jesus.
III. Respond to God’s goodness?
God’s benevolence necessitates a reaction on our part. Allow me to outline three particular measures we must do in order to transform our lives and begin to truly feel the blessings of God’s generosity. 1.
A. Repent of unbelief and ingratitude
“Or do you scorn the richness of His kindness, restraint, and tolerance, failing to recognize that God’s compassion is designed to lead you to repentance?” asks the apostle Paul in Romans 2:4. Paul is expressing himself as follows: “Do you believe that all of the blessings that come your way are due to the fact that you are an extraordinarily lovely person who has been included on God’s unique list? No, His generosity was intended to draw you closer to Him.” Receiving what He has given you without placing your confidence in Christ is equivalent to saying, “I’ll take what I can get.” “All of this was foreshadowed, thank you very much.
So please don’t stop.” We are interested in the gifts, not the Giver.
And, eventually, the gravy train will come to a crashing halt. Stop. Take a look about you. Recognize the Lord’s hand at work in your life and turn to Him right now. Put an end to your stealing from God and learn to express gratitude to Him.
B. Rest in His goodness when adversity comes
Things go wrong for good people and righteous people in our society, and both are equally likely to happen. Our circumstances might have disagreements with us about how good God is at times. It is possible that God’s ideal plan for us will entail our suffering through hardships and losses, pain, and even death. But please understand that he is there for you. According to Psalm 31:19-20, “Who can measure the depth of Your mercy that You have stored up for those who fear You, and that You have achieved in the eyes of everyone for those who seek shelter in You?
Take shelter in Him, and you will be safe.
He is up to more than you realize, and He has secret assistance that can only be accessed when you surrender your will to Him.
C. Step out in faith
You are free to take ever-increasing leaps of faith when you think that God is always good and does good in all circumstances. We have a wonderful print of Jeremiah 29:11 in our living room, which serves as a constant reminder of God’s intentions for myself and my family: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare, not for calamity, to give you a future and a hope.” Believe this and you will be liberated from your fear of taking risks for the cause of Christ.
- “He does not withhold good from people who spend their lives in accordance with their principles.” When you go out with God, you never have to worry about missing out.
- In 1997, when John was five years old, he was diagnosed with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy, which is a genetically inherited, degenerative, and severely disabling condition.
- Every year, John Gilbert suffered a loss of some sort.
- However, there was one particular instance that jumped out.
- When the auction began, one specific item drew John’s attention: a basketball that had been signed by all of the Sacramento Kings’ players.
- When his mother realized they didn’t have the means to cover any bids, she hastily took the item off the table.
- This was an incredible sum when compared to the other objects up for sale and especially when contrasted to the ball’s actual value.
While the man walked up to the front, he did not immediately return to his seat; instead, he walked across the room and gently placed the basketball into the thin, small hands of the boy who would never dribble that ball down the court, never throw it to a teammate, never fire it from the foul line, but who would cherish it for the rest of his life.
I recall hearing gasps from all across the room, followed by loud ovation and tears in the eyes of the audience.
When was the last time you received a present that you could never have purchased for yourself?
” Everybody’s Normal Until You Get to Know Them (Zondervan, 2003), p. 197; contributed by Gino Grunberg of Gig Harbor, Washington) And everyone in this room would be required to respond affirmatively to that question.
