How long is forever?
Think about what that means. There is not an ending to forever. It goes on and on and on.
Psalm 37:27-31 says, “Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever. For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed; the offspring of the wicked will perish.The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever. The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom, and their tongues speak what is just. The law of their God is in their hearts; their feet do not slip.”
Twice in this passage God tells us that if we do good, if we fall into the category of the righteous, we will dwell in the land forever.
So, what does it mean to do good?
In our own strength, we cannot. We cannot do good, because we are NOT good. But Jesus is. If we allow Him to lead us and guide us, then the things that are done are His works and they ARE good. If we have asked Jesus to be our Savior, then we are covered in His righteousness. That means our future looks bright indeed because it’s forever.
Dear Jesus, please lead and guide me to do what You want today for my life.
