"The goodness of God endureth continually."
The goodness of God refers to the perfection of His nature. "God is light and in Him is no darkness at all" (I John 1:5).
There is such an absolute perfection in God's nature and being that nothing is lacking or defective in it. Nothing can ever be added to it to make it better.
Thomas Manton said: God is originally good, good of Himself, which nothing else is: for all creatures are good onlyby participation and communication from God. He is essentially good; not a pre-added quality but goodness itself. The good in any creature is a pre-added quality, whereas in God it is His essence.
God is eternally and immutably good, for He cannot be less good than He is; as there can be no addition made to God in any way.
Open your Bible and begin reading in the Gospel of John. Ask God to make His Word plain to your heart. Ask Him to become your Good Shepherd, to forgive your sins and enable you to love and obey Him with all your heart. Ask Him to show you His goodness through your days.
