For his pleasure, God creates and sustains all things bright and good. His nature is lovingkindness and this permeates all his actions. The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. His works float on streams of his love, as flowers drifting gently on a current of divine benevolence to man. I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
God is the only source of “good ” in the universe. He is the source of every blessing that his creatures crave. Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. All his works are devised to extend the reach of his love. Every action in the created realm blushes with the goodness of God. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
The goodness of God hovers upon man as a doting nanny. What is man, that thou art mindful of him? His heart is fervent to reveal his grand and glorious blessings to all who ask. For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
Those who come to God will find his lovingkindness. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. He is the source of every treasure, the dispenser of joy and wealth. The LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good.
God is the guarantee of your success and the assurance of your everlasting peace. He is your loving Father. He is the source of your earthly life and the designer of your destiny. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God.
Consider Psalm 103, where God describes the glorious abundance of his goodness toward you.
BENEFITS. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Cloaked in the blessings and traumas of life, are the benefits of God. While traversing the twisting turns of each day, your Heavenly Father calls to you. Remember his love and keep it before your eyes. God is the source of every good thing, and he intends all things for your eternal profit.
FORGIVENESS. Who forgiveth all thine iniquities. By the wisdom of God, all flesh has sinned and come short of his glory. This shortfall can be thought of as a deficit, a specific amount by which you were made to lack from the perfection of God. By the forgiveness of God, he has decreed that you shall one day make up this deficit. What you now lack, you will soon have, and obtaining it, you will arrive at the glory of God. This is forgiveness. It is the satisfaction of your deficiency, the reversal of your lack. It is God who unconditionally forgives the failings of your humiliation, and still promises to raise you to the level of his glory.
HEALING. Who healeth all thy diseases. The disease of death thrives in the carnal mind and Adamic body. This enemy is destroyed as your mind is renewed into the anointing of Christ. As the life of Jesus Christ matures in you, you will be healed from every disease. Your spirit will be made complete and will pulse with vibrant, outflowing vitality, made immortal by the goodness of God.
REDEMPTION. Who redeemeth thy life from destruction. The Adamic experience is a dip into death for the future rulers of the universe. To be lifted from the destruction of this carnal death is the treasure of redemption. His sweeping plan will ultimately lift you out from iniquity and death, and set you into the highest of celestial heavens.
LOVINGKINDNESS. Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies. The crown of lovingkindness is the crown God wears. He is even now preparing you to wear this same crown. Your momentary earthly processings are the steps to this possession. The lovingkindness and mercy that God has, indeed even all his character, will one day be yours. These are the treasures that shall adorn the heads of those who become his Sons.
GOOD THINGS. Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. You begin your Adamic existence as the most destitute and needy creature in the universe. But God intends to satisfy your lack, so that you will be renewed and strong, overcoming and soaring. When you complete the process to Sonship you will radiate the goodness of God. You will dwell in a youth of infinite regeneration, as an effulgent source of life and joy.
RIGHTEOUSNESS. The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. In the garden of Eden, God subjected every man to sin and death. But this very oppression is the guarantee of their future righteousness. The judgment and character of God are reserved only for those who have been oppressed by Adamic failure. The time for earthly trials will soon come to an awesome conclusion, and the sons of Adam will be transformed into the righteousness of God.
MERCY & GRACE. The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. Mercy and grace are twins, which flow in abundance from the limitless ocean of God’s goodness. They are the agents of God, the active proponents that will actualize your life and secure the destiny that God has planned for you.
If the goodness of God were limited to earthly blessings, he would be a glorious and wonderful benefactor. But the awesome lovingkindness of God goes far beyond this. His goodness is exceedingly greater than you are capable of imagining. Try to think up the most outrageous delight that you can, and the reality of God’s goodness for you is exceedingly beyond that. As it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. God’s goodness toward you transcends the created realm. He intends for you to become not just part of the kingdom, but part of the King. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne.
The ultimate goodness of God is the secret plan of Sonship. By this little known design, God intends to give you his character, his wisdom, his power, and his immortality. God has arranged the heavens and the earth so that he might literally reproduce himself in you. Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons.
God is even now working a brilliant scheme to bring forth a cadre of new spirit beings- Sons who are born in his own image and likeness. There can be no greater blessing in existence, and this is the goodness of God. Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.
