Don't lose heart

Psalm 27:13-14
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!

Every day I run into people that are trying so hard to not lose heart. Whether it’s people I come in contact with at work, in the grocery store line, my family, my friends and yes even at church so many of us are waiting to see the goodness of The Lord in one area of our life or another. Just this morning a dear friend shared with me something that has come along and shaken her to the core. This situation is one that I have never personally been in but know so many that have. All I knew to tell her was don't lose heart!! 

So many people want to go along and act like everything is just fine and dandy in their life. The truth is we ALL have struggles. But The Word of God tells us that HE will strengthen our heart. There have been times in my life that I really wanted to give up on my dreams. Toss in the towel! There are still times that I wonder if He can hear my prayers. Is He listening to them? Does He even care? It’s sad to say that at times I let the enemy in and listen real close to all the lies he has to tell me. BUT, I have The Word of God in me that knows the truth!! GOD NEVER lies to us! GOD NEVER forsakes us! HE IS fighting for us!!!! He DOES listen! HE DOES CARE!!! 

His word tells us in Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." As I have said before it does NOT say all things are good. But, our God is faithful. 

So today, let me encourage you to NEVER lose heart! Wait on Him!! Be courageous!! Let Him strengthen your heart!! We WILL see His goodness in the land of the living!!!
