"I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of God
In the land of the living.

“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.

“Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!” ~ Psalm 27:13-14, NKJV

We Must Look to See the Goodness of God

Lord, thank You for being so good. Goodness is innate within You. It is who You are. I hold fast to this truth in light of this world that is spinning out of control. As I think on who You are, I find reassurance that, indeed, Your children will see the goodness of God in this land in which we live.

Strengthen our hearts as we wait on You, Lord.

Keep Your face ever before us as we consider Your ways.

As I think on who You are, I find reassurance that, indeed, Your children will see the goodness of God in this land in which we live.

I also ask that You infuse us with Your courage as we work hard to be a light in this present darkness. Nothing takes You by surprise. Nothing is beyond Your hand. Remind us of this as we determine to walk by faith and not by sight. We choose to keep our eyes focused on You, Lord.

I know many who are fearful. I know many who, not only stand by helplessly as depravity of heart fills our land, but who also are experiencing severe shaking in their own lives. The trials are fierce. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but You, Lord have promised to deliver us out of them all.

You have promised that will we see the goodness of God in the land of the living. We don’t need to wait on that time that we step across the threshold of eternity. We will see Your goodness now because You are with us.

Hide us in the cleft of the Rock while You — Your goodness — passes us by.

Thank You for Your faithfulness. Thank You for the hope You bring us — hope for a better day. We will wait on You with hope in our hearts, not focused on our circumstances, but focused on who You say You are.

There is Hope for a Better Day. We Shall See the Goodness of God

You are our God. You are sovereign, reigning supreme over all the earth. You are our Peace. And You are our God who sees us and knows all about it.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

In Jesus’s Name I pray,

Amen
