13I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living!
14 Wait for the LORD;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the LORD! – Psalm 27:13-14
This psalm starts with the encouragement that God is our stronghold and we have no reason to fear. One of our main reasons for doubt or fear is the feeling that we will never see the good things of God here on this earth. I can’t promise you that you will get everything you ever wanted on this earth, but I can assure you that you will see the goodness of God.
But David doesn’t give us an easy route to this either. He says to wait. I know, it’s a four letter word for many of us. We hate waiting. But be strong and take courage, the goodness of God is worth waiting for.
