I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord! Psalms 27:13-14 NKJ
As I sit here thinking about life and the issues people face in their lives, I could lose heart. Every day another family is dealing with a tragedy; some of them cause an immense amount of pain and hurt. There are so many situations every day that want to rob us of the joy of the Lord. When the road is rough and the going gets tough, don’t focus on the road, instead focus on the goodness of God.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 says, “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.” So yes we will have days when the cares of this life are overwhelming, but God makes the difference. Don’t waste time focusing on what’s wrong, take some time and focus on the goodness of God. We will see His goodness in our lives if we wait on Him. Waiting will strengthen our heart.
Thought for Today: If you want to see change in your life, stay with God
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
