“I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living” (Ps. 27:13, HCSB).
What does it mean to you, to see the Lord’s goodness? Probably the first thing that pops into most of our minds would be, to see a specific outcome in our current circumstances… one that would reflect how kind and loving He is, one that would be evidence of what amazingly good care He takes of us.
Yes. Solutions to our current problems, resolutions to our current difficulties, and fulfillment of our current longings… all of these would be concrete ways that we could see His goodness in the land of the living. However, I believe there is an even deeper nuance here that Holy Spirit wants to bring out for us.
