Psalm 27:13 says “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
With all the ungodly things that is happening in our world and it’s been happening since the fall of Adam. We talk to our friends and hear about how they themselves are fighting in situations that seems hopeless. We have churches today where members are back-biting, complaining about the foolishness of how they want to be the leader, and because of that they frown pick up and leave the church. We have family members who simple just can’t get along with each other, so much un-forgiveness and pain that they refuse to be healed.
Our world as we see it has broken so many of God’s Law’s that I can’t even begin to count them. And yet in all of this chaos I can say this ” I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. The Psalmist had seen much evil and hatred and his heart was overwhelmed with ” why” are these things happening? What makes a person do such things? And just like the Psalmist he said “Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, for false witnesses have risen against me, and such as breathe out violence. I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.
Family we have such an assurance in God’s word, yes there is evil in the world but there is also so much goodness in the world as well. Let’s not just focus on the evil for when we do we are doing just what the enemy wants. Let’s focus on this scripture today. Wait for the Lord, be strong and let your heart take courage, AMEN?
