Psalm 34:21 Evil will slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
We are living in a world where “evil” has become common place.
No thought against it, just a constant moving forward with it. Oh, what a terrible place to be in your mind.
In a battle with the enemy? Trouble on every hand? Does the enemy attack appears to be relentless? No need to fear, worry not fight, but trust God instead.
Believe it or not, but evildoers will eventually destroys themselves.
The ungodly only need enough rope to hang themselves. Their own iniquities shall be their punishment. Yes, wickedness is it's own executioner.
The evildoers wickedness, though designed against others, shall destroy him or herself.
Fear no evil for thou art with you says the Lord.
Isaiah 43:2-3 When you pass through waters, I will be with you. And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nro shall the flame kindle on you. .3 For I am the Lord your God.
Those who fear the Lord are not only assured of God’s protection in the adversities of life, but are also kept from divine affliction and wrath.
The Psalmist in this text gives a contrast between the righteous and the wicked for He said the wicked will be slain by evil, they will be destroyed by their own wickedness, they suffer affliction and God's wrath and because of their hate for the righteous, they will be condemned.
Here is what scripture says concerning those who chose to reject the Lord's wisdom and choose their own evil way instead. Let's listen to Proverbs 1: 28-32 You will ask for my help, but I won't listen, you will search, but you won't find me. 29-No, you would not learn, and you refused to respect the Lord. 30 You rejected my advice and paid no attention when I warned you.
31 “Now you will eat the fruit of what you have done, until you are stuffed full with your own schemes. 32 Sin and self-satisfaction bring destruction and death to stupid fools.
We are reminded in Psalm 37:1- Don’t worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. 2-For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither.
Psalm 37:7-Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
God does not promise us immunity from trouble or schemes of the evil one, but He promises to be with us in them. Psalm 34:19-Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all.
The Lord cares about his people. He delivers them from their troubles.
Proverbs 21:15-When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.
Let not evil be your pathway in life, but let the love of God, peace of God and the light of God shine in and through you so that God will receive the glory out of our lives.
Regardless of what type of evil circumstance or evildoer you may be dealing with on today, remember, Scripture declares in 2 Corinthians 5:10-For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.
When you have done all you can, "Stand”on the promises of God's Word. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.
Yes, evil has escalated to a higher level in the world today, but evil will not prevail because the Lord our God forever reigns.
Know this:what the enemy meant for evil, God will work it for your good.
Stay encouraged on today, keep God's Word hid in your hearts so that you may not sin against Him, keep trusting and keep believing for God's Word is true and will go forth and accomplish that which God has sent it to do concerning you and I.
Remember, evil will eventually destroy itself. Psalm 34:21 Evil will slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
