The Bible is full of inspiring verses that celebrate the goodness of God. His goodness shines through even in the most dire of circumstance. Praising God and celebrating His goodness throughout our day is a life-transforming activity. It teaches us to lift our thoughts from the trials and tribulations of life to wonder at the eternal goodness and mercy of our loving God. The book of Psalm stands out as a remarkable celebration of God’s goodness; one of my favourite Bible verses is in Psalm 107:
Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonders to the sons of men
For He has satisfied the thirsty soul,
And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good. (Psalm 107:8,9, ESV)
Here is a short, but by no means complete, list of Bible verses about God’s goodness for you to read and meditate on.
