The Lord Will Give What is Good

Will You not Yourself revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?  Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, and grant us Your salvation.  I will hear what God the LORD will say; for He will speak peace to His people, to His godly  ones; but let them not turn back to folly.  Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in the land.  Lovingkindess and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.  Truth springs from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.  Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its produce.  Righteousness will go before Him and will make His footsteps in a way”  Psalm 85:7-13.

Do you hear the good news?  There isn’t anyone I know who isn’t facing at least one overwhelming circumstance.  I would be a very wealthy person if only I had a dime for every time this week I said, “That really, really sucks!” We’re all surrounded by seemingly impossible situations.  Don’t lose sight of Jesus.

Read the verses again–note how He makes impossible things possible.  He places nouns side-by-side in sentences as friends when they should only occupy the same space as enemies:  Lovingkindness and truth brought together.  God’s righteousness and our wretchedness kissing in peace.  Only Jesus.

What are looking at in your life that only Jesus can remedy?  Do not forget–“the Lord will give what is good.”  He’s done it before, trust Him for it now.
