I will see the goodness of the Lord

1 11 2011

I remain confident of this:   I will see the goodness of the LORD  in the land of the living.  Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart  and wait for the LORD.” (Psalm 28:13-14)

Sometime in the midst of adversity it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Still no solutions, still no finish line, but we keep pressing on toward our goal. As I have been reading Psalms throughout this month, God has been consistently speaking to me, reassuring me daily that He is still Lord, He is in control and He will walk with me through the good times and bad. But it is not just God who is at work. I also have a responsibility in this. God sent Jesus to redeem us and bring us into a relationship with Himself, he saved us before we ever loved Him. It is because of this gift of grace that I am compelled to worship God and it is the reason I trust Him. He saved me and I owe everything that I am to Him. It is all for his glory. That makes it my responsibility to live a story that brings glory and honor to God. In order to  do this I must believe in His goodness with confidence. I know that God works for the good of those who love Him, and I am confident in His purpose not just for my life or my adversity, but in His purpose for the whole world. I am just one small piece of a much larger puzzle, and I am thankful for my tiny place.

 

God doesn’t promise to be a genie and magically make our troubles disappear. He also doesn’t promise that life will be easy. But He does promise that He will never leave, and because of that, I am confident that there is an end to this adversity even when I can’t see it. That is what faith is all about.

 

In His love,

Stacey
