Wait but Don’t Give Up


Psalm 27:13-14  I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD

Our hope is in Him and we can be confident that if we wait on God and we totally put our trust in Him we will see His goodness.  It is easy to get discouraged when we feel as though we have waited and waited and we aren’t seeing the results we have prayed for, BUT know this; the answer you are looking for if you are truly trusting and seeking the will of God is just around the corner!

Don’t give up!  You will see the goodness of God if you can just persevere! I would encourage you as this verse says to be strong today and wait for the Lord.  He will come through.  Maybe you are waiting for your husband to give his heart wholeheartedly over to God or maybe you are waiting for the right man to be your husband, maybe you are waiting to have a child or maybe you are waiting for your child to “know” God; whatever it is, don’t give up now! Be strong, take your stand, and tell Satan and all of his lies to take a hike!  God loves you and wants his best for you!  Trust Him; give it all to Him again today!

Be encouraged and speak the truth over the situation, claim the first part of this verse  and when you get discouraged just say:  I remain confident of this; I WILL see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!  In other words before I die, I will see His goodness in my life.  Don’t speak defeat over the situation!  Declare victory today and look for His answers! Pray for the Lord to give you a verse for your situation if you need extra encouragement!

Wait for the Lord, don’t give up now!  The best is yet to come – start preparing for it now so you are not taken by surprise when it gets here!

    Thanks. Wonderful devotion to start my busy day. Its interesting that so often we think of victory when we get into Heaven. I love that it says we will see goodness in the “land of the living.”

      Me too Tami! That verse is very encouraging just like you said that all victories don’t have to wait until we get to heaven we will see some here as well!
