Psalm 27:13 [NLT]
"Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living."
Some scholars believe David penned this Psalm in his older age after he was nearly killed facing yet another giant (2 Samuel 21:17). When we think of David we often think of the younger version confidently taking down Goliath and praising God for it. But, David faced a second giant and this time needed the help of his younger mighty men to rescue him.
Though David had found himself in a season of weakness, exhaustion and possible embarrassment he still by faith believed God had good things ahead for him. Until we take our last breath here on earth God has good things for us too! Yes, we might face trials but ultimately, like David, we must trust that we will see the Lord’s goodness while we’re here in the land of the living.
