I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13 NKJV
David makes an exuberant declaration of his faith in God!
David’s heart was full of the grace of God. The Lord’s love transformed David into the man with a heart after God’s own heart. God uses the Psalms to share the things He put into David’s heart with us.
This is the day for me to make an exuberant declaration of my faith in Jesus. God’s grace sustained me during trials, tribulations, and heartache. The mercy of God delivered me from sin, sorrow, and shame.
God has had me on an incredible journey. It has not been easy. It has been beautiful. God allowed trials and hardship into my life. He allowed me to suffer the consequences of my sins, failures, and mistakes. Jesus humbled me ways I never thought possible.
I would have abandoned my faith if I had not believed one day I would stand in the presence of my Savior in the land of eternal life!
I am thankful for every trial God allowed into my life. I am thankful He allowed me to suffer consequences for my choices. I know Jesus will use every trial and hardship I endure for His glory and my good.
Jesus sustained me by the power of His transforming grace. Jesus is molding me and shaping me into the man He created me to be. God has a plan and a purpose for my life!
I do not know what tomorrow will bring. I do not know where my journey may take me. I do know where it will end. I will dwell in God’s presence forever. I will receive incorruptible blessings that I cannot comprehend today!
The journey God has chosen for you will include heartache and hardship. You may suffer seasons of trial and sorrow. God loves you. Jesus has a plan and a purpose for your life. Jesus will use everything He allows into your life for His glory and to bless you.
Jesus will mold you and shape you into the person He created you to be. Jesus will sustain you by the power of His transforming grace. I do not know where your journey with Jesus will lead you. I do know you will spend eternity in God’s presence if you trust Him with your life today!
Do not lose heart. Make an exuberant declaration of your faith in Jesus. You will see the goodness of God in the land of the living with your own eyes!
Do not lose heart as you journey through life in a fallen world. Allow Jesus to form His heart in you so other people can see the goodness of God and join you in the land of living where Jesus reigns in perfect peace and justice!
