Morning all! Ps 27.13 says “Yet I am confident I will see the LORD’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.”
As we begin a new year, we have no way of predicting exactly what it will bring. Amidst all our plans for how we want this year to look, as mere humans, some of what happens will be completely out of our control. This verse reminds us that we can be confident in at least one thing: we will surely see God’s goodness. Being confident in God’s goodness means that regardless of the trials and disappointments that come our way, we’ll remain committed to the belief that God will see us through. It means that irrespective of whether or not the year has gotten off to a shaky start, we are dedicated to completely trusting in His promises so that despite our circumstances, we choose to focus on God and God alone. It’s impossible for God to break His word so if He promises goodness, we need to believe He’s more than capable of making it happen. As we journey through this year, let’s make a conscious decision to put more confidence in God than we do our situation – just wait and see what He will do!
Happy New Year and Happy Wednesday!
