See The Goodness

See The Goodness By Kirk Hunt

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living.

Psalms 27:13 NKJV


The road stretches out before me, narrow and barren.  For a moment I consider not continuing.  It is then that I remember His many promises, breathed in my soul by the Holy Spirit and confirmed in Scripture.  I will walk on and see the goodness.

Even King David could not settle all of his problems and issues with swords or proclamations.  He had to work our his own salvation with fear and trembling.  Just like you and I.  There were days he had to wait to see God’s goodness, in faith and belief.

It is not always easy; doing right, the right way.  Laboring and staying faithful for promises you see only faith.  Still, now is not the time to lose heart or hope. 

Sometimes, as now, there are storms and difficulties.  His promises remain certain.  There will be better, even in the turbulence.  His joy is in you, not in the circumstances.

Do not let anyone, even yourself, tell you that you lack faith or courage.  Faith does not ignore the difficulties.  Courage does not lessen the blows. 

Your advantage is that you know it will be worth it.  God’s goodness will be there and then, and eventually it will be here and now.  Keep walking the long narrow road to God.  Along the way you will find yourself living in the land of God’s goodness.

Think:       No matter what I see now, I will live to see God’s goodness in the future.

Pray:         “Lord, help me to have faith in Your promises, even in storms.”

In The Morning


In The Morning By Kirk Hunt

But I will sing of Your power;
Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning;
For You have been my defense
And refuge in the day of my trouble.

Psalm 59:16 NKJV


It is always better in the morning. You have survived the darkness of your troubles. The light of day is almost always a comfort after a difficult night.


Perhaps last year was not your best. Still, here you are, in a new year. God has defended you and protected you from your troubles.


No matter what happened in the night of the last year, you are here now. He has blessed you with new opportunities and possibilities. Be grateful and thankful.


Get yourself together for the new year. Assess where you are. Make plans based on your currently reality. Work your plans like a champion.


Scripture does not promise you an easy ride. Scripture does promise you God’s goodness, power and grace. Sing your song in gratitude and praise.


Even if you do not feel like it this minute, sing. God’s goodness brought you here. God’s power keeps you here. God’s grace will carry you there.


You have arrived in a new year. God continues to look out for you and watch over you. Bless Him for giving a new morning and a new year.


Think:            This is the morning of a new year. How will I use it for God?


Pray:               “Lord, thank You for Your continuing care and protection in a new year.”
