The Lord is good (see below). I know the Lord is good because He takes care of my every need (Philippians 4:19; cf. Psalm 23:1)
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures for ever (Psalm 106:1-NIV).
Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant (Psalm 135:3-NIV).
Let us give thanks for the Lord’s goodness toward us.

To that remark, I say, “Amen” and “Amen.”
I have a great need for Christ; I have a great Christ for my need.
