“LOOK AT THE PROUD, THEY TRUST IN THEMSELVES, AND THEIR LIVES ARE CROOKED. BUT THE RIGHTEOUS WILL LIVE BY THEIR FAITHFULNESS TO GOD.”
Happy Wednesday Saints.
It’s always tempting when we are faced with uncertainty to become impatient with the Lord’s provisions.
No matter what we are going through or who we are up against, God’s people must remain patient and faithful to the Lord.
Your opponents might be arrogant, self-reliant and crooked. Their twisted and perverse ways might seem to prosper and fill their own pockets. Their corrupt success can be discouraging to those who live to please the Lord. But it’s times like this that you need to stand in a strength that is not your own.
Psalm 73:26 says “MY FLESH AND MY HEART MAY FAIL, BUT GOD IS THE STRENGTH OF MY HEART AND MY PORTION FOREVER.”
As tempting as it may be to compromise one’s integrity, or give up fighting injustice, or to cease doing good – THE RIGHTEOUS WILL LIVE BY THEIR FAITHFULNESS TO GOD.
God’s people are faithful regardless of the circumstances. Their opponents might ridicule their spiritual and ethical behaviour, but God’s people can be at peace and leave any vindication to God.
Psalm 137:1-2 says “DO NOT FRET BECAUSE OF THOSE WHO ARE EVIL OR BE ENVIOUS OF THOSE WHO DO WRONG; FOR LIKE THE GRASS, THEY WILL SOON WITHER, LIKE GREEN PLANTS THEY WILL SOON DIE AWAY.”
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and be at peace today. Let Him be your strength and portion forever.
God bless and lots’a love,
