Psalm 37:7 - Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
In a world where evil seems to have become common place, we are commanded in this text to rest in God (Word), wait patiently for Him and fear not.
David knew the hands of evil first hand. He was hated by King Saul who made may attempts on his life to kill him, but God never allowed it to happen. God has a plan and purpose for David's life. David had already been anointed and appointed by God as Israel's next King, therefore, evil may have reigned for a little while, but it did not prevail.
Perhaps on today, you may find yourself being treated evil by someone. I say to you, "fear not", nor attempt to take revenge, but trust God. Scripture declares in vs #2 For evildoers shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
In other words, a day is coming where God is gonna deal with evil that is brought against you. Regardless of what you see or what the enemy of your mind may be telling you, scripture declares that God will deal with evildoers. Vs #5 -Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Do not worry or fear when it appears that evil is prospering, when it appears that evildoers are getting away with their schemes. Who knows creation better than God, the Creator? God says that evil will be dealt with and you and I have to believe that, regardless of what is in front of us.
Do not let evildoers get under your skin because it will only cause you to either do wrong or have wrong thinking. Again, I say, "trust God"! It is God who promises to avenge you. Be content in knowing that God will deal with evildoers. Sharpen your mind with the Word of God, which has the power through the Holy Spirit to sustain you.
Listen to what scripture declares concerning those who are evildoers in vs#10- Evil men will soon disappear; you will stare at the spot where they once were, but they will be gone.
Psalm 37:35-36 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. 36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
There is no guarantee in life against persecution, but there is a guarantee from God that evil will be dealt with.
One of the most difficult things to do in the midst of persecution from evildoers is to wait on God, but wait, rest, fear not, trust Him and cease from anger is exactly what God is calling us to do on today.
Remember vs#9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
Wait on the Lord and keep His commandments. Stay in the way of His Word and prayer for evil shall one day cease against you. God said it and I believe it!
Fret not yourself of him or her who appear to prosper in doing evil. At God's appointed time, evil will be dealt with. You have one promise after another throughout scripture to prove it.
David is our proof on today, he was eventually crowed King in spite of the attacks that came against him prior to his Kingship.
Jesus is our proof. Persecuted beyond human comprehension and He sits on the right hand of God the Father as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Wait on God saints!
Numbers 23:19 - God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
Are you in the midst of persecution because of evildoers? Wait on God!
The promises of God are yea and amen in Christ Jesus.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for He declares that vengeance is mine says the Lord.
I love you all.
