I Will See Your Goodness in My Lifetime! (FMF:: Provide)

I Will See Your Goodness (Provide)

//

I will see Your goodness IN MY LIFETIME.

Oh, how I love God’s Word and His sweet presence. It changes everything. Especially on days when the pressure seems insurmountable, just a few moments in His presence can turn everything around.

I will see Your goodness IN MY LIFETIME.

Last night, I remembered again how much I adore my Father and the people He’s placed around me. Imagine for a moment… fireplace burning, low lighting, rustic décor, hot coffee, great acoustics, three gifted guitarists, and 40 worshippers singing their hearts out. It was heaven.    

I will see Your goodness IN MY LIFETIME.

Our Worship Team has been meditating on Psalm 27. Do you remember it?

Proverbs 27—some of my favourite parts

The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in his temple.

For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at His sacred tent, I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.

I REMAIN 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.

 

What a powerful passage! Add to that the foundation of skilled players and lilting chord progressions, and you have the perfect canvas for melodies. New songs. Spiritual songs. God songs. //

I will see Your goodness.

I will see Your goodness, Lord.

I will see Your goodness IN MY LIFETIME.

 

I Love God’s Word!

It cuts right through the fog around my mind—past the urgent, past the worrisome—and brings truth to my dark places.

“I remain confident of this: I WILL see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”

That means here, on this earth, before I get to heaven. We don’t have to wait until we’re dead before we can see His goodness. His provision and favour are here for us TODAY. Here. Now. While we walk this earth.

My friends, what do you need?

God can provide your every need—healing, comfort, direction, purpose, provision. Even if it looks different than you expect, He is still so eager to step-in and care for His kids.

  1. Chew the Word… read it, write it, speak it, sing it, pray it. Not just once, but again and again, and let it wash you (i.e., Ephesians 5:26). Let His Word wash away your doubt and confusion, unbelief and fear.
  2. Then let worship rise from the deepest parts of you!

Do this and watch the mountains looming in front of you shrink away. Do this and feel your confidence grow.

 

I love God’s Word!

Signature, Shauna

      Thanks, Jess. What a great word… redirection. That’s exactly what happens, isn’t it? Redirected from what we think is real to seeing things through God’s perspective.
      I’m so glad you came to visit. Have a great week!

      Thanks, Rebekah! Yes, I’m so grateful that our Father provides everything we need, even if that provision is simply helping us to see life through His eyes.
      Heading over to read your post too. Have a great week!
