Confident in God's goodness

I wanted to share a couple of things that's been stirring around in me and hopefully give all of us more things to pray for when we are praying for Dave and Ginnie.

Psalm 27:13,14
I am CONFIDENT I will see the Lord's GOODNESS while I am here in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

The word wait here means "to expect". Expecting God's goodness is of utmost importance. We can't just know He's good, we've got to expect His goodness in our lives. The word confident here means "firm".

You know, honestly speaking, some days our confidence in God's goodness is not as high as other days. I was praying about this and I ran across Isaiah 40:28-31

God doesn't come and go. God lasts...He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in the prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles. They run and don't get tired, they walk and don't lag behind. Isaiah 40:28-31

God lasts!! I love that!

When our strength gives out, God's lasts! Why??? BECAUSE HE IS GOOD!!

Yes, there will be very difficult days, even days we may question our confidence. But God always answers us with the same message: "NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME".
Impossibilities are God's specialty. God will always exceed our expectations....because He is good!

Thank you for your prayers!!
