The Goodness of God

 

This morning Glennis read Psalms 27 to me. She was especially built up by verses 13 and 14, “I would have fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of God in the land of the living. Wait death-valley-pics15.jpgon the Lord: be of good courage, and He will strengthen thy heart, wait I say on the Lord.God has given to us a confident expectation in Him fulfilling a promise of healing He made to me in Oct. 1997 with a verse from Nehemiah (2:4). And again in March 1998, in Arizona, where He appeared to me in a vision. As we wait on the Lord, He has been strengthening our hearts or “inner man” This blessing of knowing Christ in our spirit man, can often times only be achieved when our “outer man” is tried or has to go through severe prolonged suffering or tribulation.  We don’t even realize how attached we are to our physical bodies or this world, until God brings us to a valley of decision. In this valley we can choose to praise Him and thank Him for the work that He is doing in our lives because of our trials, or we can choose to forfeit any spiritual growth He intended for us, by being unthankful and withholding praise to Him because of our inability to see with “spiritual eyes” God at work in our valley.
