Land of the Living

The title of today’s devotion is “Land of the Living.” You will not find those same words in many Bible translations. Verse 13 says, “I truly believe that I will see the Lord’s goodness before I die.” A footnote for that verse tells us that the words “before I die” really mean “in the land of the living.”
Psalm 27 was written by King David. David was probably facing hard times in his life. He felt all alone. His enemies were attacking him. But David trusted God. He knew that God would continue to be with him. David knew that God would bless him and take care of him. David was sure he would see God’s goodness.
Maybe you are facing some hard times in your life right now. Maybe you are going through sickness, financial troubles or a divorce. If you are trusting and obeying God, you can be sure you will see God’s goodness in your life.
Be like David today. Depend on God every day.
