Good Morning! Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Psalm 27:13-14, which says,
“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. (14) Wait on the LORD; and be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD.“
With so much happening to us on a daily basis, it could be easy to become overwhelmed and lose our courage to continue pressing forward. However, what we know about the LORD and the experiences we have had with Him should stimulate us to not become discouraged. Our knowledge of the LORD and His ability to sustain us in the midst of our trying circumstances, is vital to our peace.
David was confident that he would not be overcome by His circumstances, and that He would experience the LORD’s goodness. David issues three necessary imperatives in verse 14, he said that we must wait on the LORD with confidence. We must then, find courage and be strengthened and know the LORD will embolden us. He again commands us to wait on the LORD!
