“[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed
that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!
Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good
courage and let your heart be stout and enduring.
Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord. “
Psalms 27:13, 14
It’s so easy to expect good things when everything is going well
for you. It’s actually hard to be negative when doors in your
life are opened and everyone loves you but what happens when
things go wrong??
What if nothing is working in your life?
What if everyone hates you?
What if things are falling apart?
It’s in those times, when expecting goodness isn’t so easy.
I have had a couple of rough weeks and to be honest it’s been
hard to expect the Lord’s goodness. Things have not been going
the way I wanted them to. . I have been public enemy number
one at times. In those circumstances it’s been hard to be
In my sad state it was easy to start thinking negatively.
It was so easy to tear myself down.
But that was not where God wanted me to stay.
He wanted me to focus on His goodness.
The enemy wants us depressed. He wants us to feel hopeless.
He wants us to believe nothing good will happen in our lives.
He wants us to believe God doesn’t care about us.
He wants us to experience God’s goodness period!
But the Lord wants us believe we will see His goodness in the
land of the living!
What are you believing today?
Do you believe you are finished?
Do you believe nothing good will happen for you?
Do you believe your circumstances won’t change?
The word for us today is to wait, hope for and expect the Lord!
It’s not easy to do those things but we have to be brave and
We must expect the Lord’s goodness!
The author writes,
“what, what would have become of me had I not believed that
I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living?”
We can’t let the bad circumstances steal our hope?
We can’t allow the fear in the world to shape our expectations.
We can’t let the bad things that happen to us in life take God
out of the picture.
No matter how bad things are God wants us to believe we
will see his goodness!
He wants us to believe things will get better.
He wants us to believe that bad situation will turn around.
My encouragement to you is to expect the Lord’s goodness
in the land of the living!
Wait, hope for and expect the Lord!
He wants us to expect His goodness because He will
turn the bad to good. He will turn that bad situation into
good. He will not let that
winter last forever. He will answer our prayers.
He will give us that breakthrough we are trusting Him
What will you do today???
Bless you friends!
