Well people how many of us know that God is a giver of good. When we wait upon Him, we can expect to receive good from His hand. He is not going to give us anything that will hurt or harm us. God loves us and wants to see that we are well provided and cared for. Some of us can not wait on the goodness of Jesus and we go out and try to find our own good making a mess in the process. God has promised good unto us. His Word is true and reliable. His Word my hope secures (Amazing Grace). Hope is fastened, chained, sealed, and fortified in Jesus. Jesus is good. His Word is good. His Word is sweet like bread. To the Israelites bread came to mean life and sustenance. Bread was needed to sustain life. Jesus is needed to sustain spiritual life. Jesus gives us eternal life with the Father. God (Yahweh) is a giver of all good things.
