The Goodness of God

  • I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13 WEB.

    David was now a wanted man and on the run for his life. He was once a hero in the eyes of the people. Now the ones who David had trusted sought to kill him. David was on the run when he wrote Psalm 27. Either from his father-in-law Saul, when Doeg the Edomite reported him. Or from his own son Absalom, who attempted to overthrow David and become King.

    When everything was against him, David strengthened his faith in God. He remembered the things that the Lord had done for him in the past (Psalms 27:2). Then he confessed that he was going to see the goodness of God again. "I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!"

    Sometimes you can do everything right, but everything will go wrong. Those who once loved you now seem to hate you. When you pray, you may hear only silence. Be assured that the Lord is still there, and nothing is hidden from His sight.

    Yes, it may look dark and hopeless, but that isn't the end of your story. It's only a valley, and there will be another mountain top. Real faith is tested when you continue to live right and seek God, while all hell breaks loose around you. That's how the apostles did it.

    Remember what the Lord has done for you. Don't get beaten down in the trials of life. God has brought you this far, and He is going to bring you the rest of the way. Stay the course, and you will overcome. Take courage, and know that the Lord is going to fix this somehow. Say it out loud: "I don't know how, but somehow God is going to bring me through this."

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You lead me out of darkness and into Your presence. Please come into my heart and help me make the right decisions today. I choose to make You the Lord of my life. Bring to my remembrance the things that You have already done for me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: Ladies, today is Thankful Thursday at the "Ladies in Distress" group (our RHM women's group)!
