Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13).
In Psalm 27, David wonders what would have happened if he had not believed he would see the goodness of God. No matter what comes your way. Let this seed drop and take root. You have to believe you’re going to see God’s goodness again. You’ve got to believe you’re going to see God turn it around. Believe you’re going to see God open up new doors.
When you are filled with hope, you have a new mind set. When you feel like dying, you’ve got to think about living. When you feel like giving up, you’ve got to talk about pressing forward. When you don’t see any way out, you’ve got to talk about how God can and will make a way. And know this, the enemy always fights you the hardest when he knows God has something great in store for you. When the bottom falls out and it looks like you’ve hit an all-time low and it couldn’t get any worse, that’s not the time to get bitter, or sour. That’s the time to think better, to think greater! That’s the time to put your shoulders back and boldly declare, “My time is coming. I am a victor and not a victim.”
