Help for Today—Hope for the FUTURE – S2-DE14

Lady V’s Weekly Devotional 

“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed, that I would see the goodness of the LORD, in the land of the living.” 

“Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!” 

Psalm 27:13-14, NKJV 

Devotional 

I recall growing up hearing the older folks singing about life’s troubles, and getting to the sweet ole by-and-byIt gave me the impression that the only time God would show HIS goodness was after death and not in this life—which is simply not true

In Revelation chapter 21, we read a description of the New Jerusalem, which is the new city of God and HIS future home for HIS people. It is, no doubt, the goodness of the LORD for the FUTURE.  

And, in John, chapter 14, Jesus says, “Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and I will take you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also” (John 14:1-3, AMP).

Now, that’s Good News! The Word of God lets believers know that Jesus is confirming that eternal life with HIM, is secured by believing in HIM. And not only that, there is special preparation going into our joining Jesus in eternity. 

But, let’s look to HIS goodness for TODAY. In Psalm 27:13-14, here we find David, going through some type of trouble.

Finding Peace in Uncertain Times – S2E13

In uncertain times, anxiety can cause some people to lose peace of mind. That’s why finding peace in uncertain times is so important. For instance, in January 2020 we wouldn’t have expected that by March our way of life would change.

In a matter of a few months, COVID-19 has made its mark on countries around the world. And as a result, families have experienced devastating losses. Such as the loss of a family member, a business, a job, or finances.
