I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage;

yea, wait for the Lord!

Psalm 27: 13-14 (RSV)

  1. For me, the most important phrase in this quotation is “the land of the living”. It feels like such a word of permission to live our lives in the here and now, rather than passively waiting for some “better time” once life ends.

  2. I agree…

    I think this is what Jesus meant when he said: “The kingdom of God is at hand.” God’s kingdom is not something that we’ll experience in the future. It is close to us as our hands! That’s why Jesus also said: “The kingdom of God is among us.”
