DO NOT BE DISTRACTED!

Updated: Feb 10


As you continue setting, and evaluating, goals remember not to spend too much time in bitterness when you see the wicked flourishing!


When you see wicked people flourishing, do not become frustrated and angry, realizing that God will ultimately reward you for our faithfulness. Don’t let what it seems like cause you to be distracted. God sees everything. Press forward and run your race.


In Psalm 37 David points out what will eventually happen to those who consistently reject God and live evil lives:


They will be destroyed

They will be no more

They will be destroyed by their own weapons of destruction

Their arms are broken

They will perish, fade away

The children of the wicked will be destroyed

Transgressors will be eliminated

Their future will be destroyed


He also points out what will happen to those who accept God and consistently live obedient lives:


Inherit the land

The Lord’s support

His judgment on the wicked

He will not abandon us

We will be kept safe

We will watch the as the wicked are destroyed.

We will see the transgressors eliminated and their future destroyed


Although it may look like the wicked are flourishing there is a time of judgment when we will all be held accountable for how we lived. As believers we cannot allow our perception of flourishing on this earth cause us to lose sight of our eternal inheritance. What is going on here is temporary. We must keep our eyes on what is eternal.


I’m not there yet, nor have I become perfect; but I am charging on to gain anything and everything the Anointed One, Jesus, has in store for me—and nothing will stand in my way because He has grabbed me and won’t let me go. Brothers and sisters, as I said, I know I have not arrived; but there’s one thing I am doing: I’m leaving my old life behind, putting everything on the line for this mission. I am sprinting toward the only goal that counts: to cross the line, to win the prize, and to hear God’s call to resurrection life found exclusively in Jesus the Anointed. (Philippians 3:12-14 The Voice)
