“[What, would have become of me] had I not believed to see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living

 Wait and hope for and expect the Lord;

be brave and of good courage,

and let your heart be stout and enduring. 

Yes, wait and hope for and expect the Lord.” 

Psalm 27: 13-14 AMP

This scripture was a real turning point in my life.  A friend gave me a CD with some songs her sister had written and sang on it.  This scripture was the lyrics to one of those songs.  I listened to it for days, wanting to believe that I would see God’s goodness, when all I felt was pain.  Meditating on this scripture, I went from not believing it was even true, to hoping that it was.  That, in time, turned to knowing that God was able to make it true.  To where I am today; that it is true, that God is able to make it a reality, that God wants it to be a reality in my life, to my personal everyday reality!

Wait, hope for, and expect God’s goodness in your life.  You can’t ever work for it, you can’t ever disappoint Him so as to lose it, and He will never take it away.  His goodness is His gift to us.  His goodness is Jesus and the increasing revelation of WHO He is and WHAT He has done for us individually and corporately!  Add to your waiting, hope, and to your hope add expectation. 

He will not disappoint!
