I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

Psalm 27:13

As I talked about in my last blog, God is a good God and that will never change. God desires to be good to his children. We do not have to wait until we get to heaven to experience his goodness. This verse says, “…in the land of the living,” here and now! Be confident in God, that he is good and that he wants to be good to us. Why do we lose that confidence in him so often? Confidence is based on trust and trust takes time and effort to build, right? But if we aren’t putting any time or effort into our relationship with God how are we ever going to trust him or trust that he wants to be good to us? I know we want instant gratification, but this takes time. Any relationship takes time and effort, so start putting some into your relationship with God and stop relying on him to do all the work. One-sided relationships are very difficult to maintain. But regardless of our effort God still loves us and still wants to be good to us.

How has God shown you his goodness?

Take some time to sit and reflect on your life and see where God’s hand has been along your journey.

I would love to hear where you have seen his goodness in your life!
