When you see wicked people flourishing, do not become frustrated and angry, realize that God will ultimately reward you for your 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 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 to 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)

This life and the troubles associated with it are temporary. Focus on the promise of eternity and eternal things.

"For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!], Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting." (2 Corinthians 4:17-18 AMPC)

Be Encouraged! ❤
