by Joel Osteen
"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living" (Psalm 27:13, NIV).
David was going through a tough time when he made the declaration in todayís verse. Things werenít going his way. But he said in effect, ďIím not worried. Iím not upset. I am confident I will see Godís goodness.Ē In other words, ďThis situation Iím in may be rough, but thatís not going to steal my vision. Thatís not going to cause me to give up on my dreams. I am confident that this year, I will see Godís favor in a new way.Ē
Thatís what our attitude needs to be today because what you focus on is what you will see. No matter what the medical report says, no matter what your finances look like, no matter how bad that relationship may seem, be confident that you will see His goodness! He is the all-powerful, omniscient, Creator of the universe, and He holds you in the palm of His hand. Nothing is too difficult for Him. Take hold of this truth by faith and focus on His goodness today. Allow His peace to settle in your heart and mind as you move forward in His blessing all the days of your life!
Father in heaven, thank You for Your goodness in my life. I choose to focus on You today no matter what my circumstances may look like. Give me Your peace as I keep my mind stayed on You. In Jesusí Name. Amen.
