Psalm 27:13

I am still confident of this:  I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

I love this verse as it speaks to where we are now on earth.  We know Heaven and an eternity with Jesus awaits, but He has good things in store for us here as well.  We ought not to sulk about and be gloomy and simply wait to find joy when we cross over into glory.  He is just as much with us now on this journey in this earthly realm.  The next verse says, “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” (v. 14)  He has a plan for us here as well and wants us to enjoy Him through it.  It won’t always be joyful or feel good.  Many times, and for some, most of the time is difficult and just hard.  But He shows His own His goodness and gives His joy abundantly through the journey.  Don’t miss Him in the journey.  Keep your eyes and ears open for His goodness.  Ask Him to reveal all that He has for you in every moment.  Ask for more of Him.  He will not let you down!  “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”  Jeremiah 29:13
