When Will There Be Any Good News?

VF01“I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness, while I am here in the land of the living.”  Psalm 27:13

I spend very little time listening to the “news” which really should be called the “olds.”  It’s the same old junk!  In the midst of all of that we are hearing and seeing, I agree with the Psalmist–I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

I am happy to report there is good news!  There are people today who are making a decision to trust Christ as Lord and Savior.  There are people rejoicing because they have been miraculously healed of disease.  There are still many couples in love with each other after years of being together.  People are being set free to live healthy lives because they have learned how to forgive!  There are babies who will grow up to be great leaders of God because their mothers chose to give them life!

Yes, I can see God’s goodness in the land of the living.  There’s more!

There are many people who are giving money to help the homeless and the hungry.  Dream Centers are springing up all over this nation to reach those who have been labeled as the unreachable.  Ministries are helping to free women who have been imprisoned by sex slavery.  Many are walking out of a past of sexual abuse and into the wholeness offered by God.  There are men discipling young men who have no father figure in their lives.  People in horrible circumstances are seeing God make a way where there seems to be no way.

How do I know these things?  Because in the last several months, I have personally witnessed all of these things happening!  Praise God that I can see Good News in a land that is continually concentrating on bad news.  I can see God’s goodness in the land of the living.  Rejoice! There is good news!  The Spirit of God is at work today!

And the best news of all … Jesus Christ will return as Lord and King, and those who have accepted Him as Savior will live with Him forever!  I will be so glad to see Him. That is good news!

When will there be any good news?  There already is!

One thought on “When Will There Be Any Good News?

  1. I was so touched lately by a friend of mine who shared about how God was working in her life. She is a pastor’s kid (yes still a kid even though she’s in her 30s) and she loves the Lord, but I had been concerned for her lately. She just seemed weighed down by life.

    Her and I are a bit of an odd couple. She speaks her mind and is often very humorous, but tends to be more of an internal processor when it come to the things of God. Whereas, I will brag on God if He put my type of toilet paper on sale or inspired one of my kids to clean their room without me asking them (you know that has to be the leading of the Lord,) but lately that some of the only times I open my mouth at all.

    So to hear her share so publically, and to make herself so vulnerable as to let people know how much it moved her that God was working on her behalf touched me more than God’s ability to move mountains for me. She is still dealing with some pretty weighty stuff, but she has a renewed faith in the Lord, and for that I am thankful.

    He is SO good, and there most certainly is GOOD NEWS now. It may not always be easy, but He is always there!
