Today’s Reading: Jeremiah 26:1‐27:22, 2 Thessalonians 3:1‐18, Psalm 85:1‐13, Proverbs 25:16
Context: David is praying that God will restore (v4) and revive (v6) Israel again. He ends claiming that God will be consistent with his character and do it.
Psalm 85:12 “Yes, the Lord will give what is good,
and our land will yield its increase.”
- Yes – he is answering himself
- The Lord will give what is good
- Our land will yield its increase (harvest in the NIV)
While we were dating, Rebecca felt like God gave her this verse in affirmation of our future. Last Christmas I had it framed and it is now hanging above our bed. Over the last few months, we again find ourselves in a period of life that involves some unknowns…
Apply: I want to “listen to what he will say” (v8) and stay near to him (v9) during this season. He will give what is good and our land will yield its harvest.
How does the character of God give you hope in the different seasons of life?
