Psalm 27:13
“I will remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” 
David was confident–not only that God was good, but that he would see the goodness of God. He was confident not only that he would someday see the goodness of God in heaven, but also that he would see the goodness of God “…in the land of the living”. 
I am confident that God is good, and I am confident that I will see His goodness–indeed, I do see His goodness each day! On tough days though, I can slip into a mindset of thinking of God’s goodness in a more general or ethereal way: “Someday I’ll see God’s goodness–maybe in heaven…”  I need to maintain my confidence in the goodness of my heavenly Father. He is good, and He loves me…and I will see the goodness of God in the land of the living–in this life. His goodness may not always appear in the way I hope it will, but I will see the goodness of God. 
God, thank you for your goodness and your love for me. Not just a vague or general goodness, but specific and present goodness which affects my life and changes my present season.
