This summer I did a Bible Study that taught me a lot about how God speaks to me. I began to pray that God would speak to me about some very specific things going on in my life. One Saturday I had a very specific request that I needed an answer for pretty quickly. And I prayed that God would give me scripture to pray and meditate on. The scripture he gave me that day was Psalm 27:13-14, “I am still confident of this. . . I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” And isn’t it just so God that the very scripture he gave me to pray, contained the answer to the request I had. The answer was to WAIT. Oh, is that ever hard for me to do. On that Saturday I wrote down that scripture on an index card and put in on the dashboard of my car. It is still there and I still look at the scripture and pray it back to God.
Today in my Bible Study, that scripture came up again and I was reminded of the importance of waiting for God and his timing for things in my life. For me over the past five months, waiting for God has meant spending lots of time on my knees and on my face before God. Pouring out my heart and soul to him with a number of things. I don’t know what you are facing today, but I do know that God tells us in his word to “be CONFIDENT of this. . . we WILL see the GOODNESS of the Lord. . . ” God is good all the time. All the time, God is good. Are you confident that you will see God’s goodness in your life? I’d love to hear what good and great things God is doing in your life.
