THE WORD FOR TODAY
Psalm 25-27 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Psalm 27:13 13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.
It’s scary to listen to, read, or watch the news lately. We are being bombarded with BAD NEWS…from the Gulf Oil Crisis to the latest flash flood in Arkansas and more in between. It’s not fun to listen to the news.
The Psalmist declared the sentiments of my heart when he wrote, “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.” It didn’t matter what was happening around him…he trusted in God. He declared a sure confidence that he would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
It’s easy to lose heart. It’s tempting to give up. The pull of discouragement, depression and despair are powerful forces in our daily life. But greater is HE that is in us that he that is the world.
Today…not matter the BAD NEWS…I will intentionally see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. It may be in the joy and laughter of the children at church camp. It will be in the prayers of saints on my behalf. I will see the goodness of the LORD in the friends that I enjoy spending time with. I will enjoy the goodness of the LORD in time with my family. I will certainly see the goodness of God in HIS Word that is more powerful than any news station in the world.
I will not allow the bad news of the day to rob me of the goodness of God in my life today.
Lord, rain down Your goodness in the land of the living today…we need YOU…help us we pray…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
