Whenever adverse circumstances, negative situations and painful conditions arise in our midst, we must believe to see, not see to believe, that our Lord will mightily move in our lives. You must remember that wherever a believer is, he or she can always find a way to the throne of grace by prayer and trust God for His Divine Intervention.
A special word of assurance and encouragement can be found in Psalms 27:13, where David said, “I would have fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.”
Evil had raised its hand as many false witnesses rose up against him and threatened to destroy both his life and the lives of his friends. The opposition was so numerous, mighty, and fierce that it everything physically appeared helpless, hopeless, useless and that death was at hand.
Yet David said that his only support was his faith in God and his belief that he would yet be permitted to see the goodness of God upon the earth. Here David does not speak of a faith that he once had, but of the faith, confidence and assurance that he now has.
What was this confidence grounded in? He believed, trusted and relied on The Word and The Promises of God. And with this deep internal conviction, he had the fullest belief that God would intervene to save, heal, provide and change his present circumstances by delivering him out of the hands of his enemies.
His faith in God was sufficient enough to calm his mind and sustain him under those stressful and heart-wrenching conditions. This psalm clearly revealed David’s state of heart and mind despite the efforts of his enemies to destroy him. David firmly believed in God’s Presence, and by seeking His Face, he was trusting God for His Divine Guidance and His Almighty Invisible Protection.
In times of affliction, perplexity and discouragement, you too can have this same assurance because of God’s Love, Grace, and Power promised to all believers through His Word and by His Holy Spirit.
As you look to Our Mighty Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, through fervent prayer and faith, you too can be delivered from the hands of the enemy that’s oppressing you. So, remain encouraged and wait on the Lord with great expectation and the full assurance that God will also intervene mightily in your life.
THEREFORE, HAVE FAITH IN GOD!
