"Goodness" by Pastor Peter Thomas
Praise the Lord, Dear Reader:
God has been mighty good to me. Good is my God to me. I can say of a truth, God is good. Down through the years, I have found the Lord to be faithful. It is not because of any righteousness of mine. As I look back in retrospect, it had to have been a divine power that brought me thus far. The world has failed me, but God has kept me. Close ones have walked away from me, however, God has stood with me. Medical science tried its best with me, all to no avail, but God continues to be my healer. The devil had snared me, but God delivered me. The songwriter sung, “Through many dangers, toils, and snare, I have already come. T'is grace that brought me safe thus far. And grace will lead me on”. I was a sinner, but God redeemed my life from destruction. When I entertained falsehood, God brought me into the knowledge of the truth.
It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed. I thank the Lord this day and everyday. It is according to the multitude of his mercy and lovingkindness that I now write to you. Consider his goodness. I speak the life of God over my life. Of course, “the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” [John 6:63]. He is my light and my salvation (Psalms 27:1). Presenting to some, introducing to others, my One and only Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Have you tried him? If you have tried everything and everything has failed, try Jesus.
CONFESSIONS OF GOOD SCRIPTURES:
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.
 Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.
 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
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.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses' father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.
THE LORD HAS SPOKEN GOOD CONCERNING ME.
The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: ...
2 Thessalonians 1:7
And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
You have heard that God is very good to me. He is. Such as I have, I give to you, Acts 2:38.
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Trusting Mightily in the Lord,
