Reading this morning, i have come across a scripture that really spoke to me and encouraged me so i want to share it with you.
13-14 I'm sure now I'll see God's goodness
in the exuberant earth.
Stay with God!
Take heart. Don't quit.
I'll say it again:
Stay with God.
This entire psalm is awesome and just makes David appear so transparent to God. He is rejoicing in the goodness of God regardless of his circumstances.
after all David has been through and to be able to say that
- 'I am sure i'll see Gods goodness in this earth" - he is very confident in God, not doubting, not wavering in Gods abilities. He has seen many victories while going experiencing many failures but at the end of the day, he says i am sure! Are you sure about the goodness of God? that you will see it now? we can often believe it for someone else, or the future because we are afraid of disappointment and failure, but God is faithful and when we seek Him, and when we have faith in Him, and not doubt His work, and believe that He is a re warder of those that diligently seek Him, we WILL see Gods goodness in this land NOW!
- Take Heart- David encourages us to not lose heart, not to give up, to keep going on even when its tough. The strong don't give up. and sometimes we need to take our heart to God and surrender all to Him, lay it out there, and let him fix it, and make it stronger. So today, don't give in, don't give up, and take heart! you can do it!
- Don't quit- i heard once if you are tired of starting over, than don't quit. This is so key to having success in any area of our lives, quitters don't win, and winners never quit. when you know you are in the will of God, and doing what He wants, you will encounter battles, struggles, mountains and turmoil at times, that is a given because we have an enemy that does not like you to succeed and if he can get you to quit, he has won! So today, make up your mind to not quit, but keep moving forward in your adventure, your journey, your life. you will make a difference. just give it some time and remember that you will SEE the goodness of God in the land of the living..that is here and now! believe it my friend.
- lastly, we are encouraged to stay with God! i believe David knew what it was like to walk away from God, to sin, to fail, but then his heart would never allow him to quit! His passion for God kept him sticking with whom he knew was his only hope, his answer, his life! we too need to stay with God, no matter what. The same God that created you, is the same God who will maintain you so don't quit and don't fall our of fellowship with God. He is so in love with you, He is your source, your life, Your all! So i encourage you today to STAY WITH GOD! he has never left you, and never will! you are too important to Him. He loves you so much!
