Psalm 37:1-2 Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be jealous of those who do injustice.
2 For they will quickly wither like the grass, and fade like the green herbs.
Throughout scripture God comforts us with these words "do not fear, fret not thyself of evildoers and do not be envious of those that daily works evil deeds" for God already knows who they are and He has a plan for them too.
1 Corinthians 6:9a- Don't you realize that those who do evil will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves.
God promises us, people of God that one day we will look for those that willfully do evil and we will not be able to find them.
God's Word metaphorically describes "evildoers" as a flower that appears in full bloom one day and the next day they have withered like the grass and faded away like the green herbs.
We are told in scripture that "evil doers" will be dealt with by God. Veangence is mine says the Lord.
People of God, do not fear them nor be jealous of them in thinking that they are getting away with evil doings for scripture declares that they are not.
Regardless of what our eyes may see or our ears may hear, we MUST believe the report of the Lord which is found in His Word called the Bible.
The call to the believers today is to "STAND FIRM" in the Word of God! Standing firm on the Word of God and what we know to be true in it.
Regardless of how foolish or naive you may look to the enemy, stand firm people of God.
The truth of the matter is the Holy Spirit has already revealed them to us through scripture. Therefore, fret not and envy not for the deeds of evil doers are not only clearly seen by God, but He has given us vision to see them too through His Holy Spirit.
People of God, evil appears to be on every hand? Trust God and do good, commit your way unto the Lord, rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him.
We are reminded in this text in vs#12-13-The wicked plot against the righteous, and grind their teeth against them. 13 The Lord will laugh at him, for He sees that his day is coming.
Yes, payday is coming for all of us. 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.
People of God, do not fear nor be envious of evil doers but stand firm in what you know to be true in the Word of God in the midst of evildoers for scripture declares that one day you shall look for them and they shall be no more.
As we look around in our world today, we see acts of evil, evidence of evil and evil doers in just about every realm of life.
The enemy of our mind (doubt and fear) wants us to believe that evil is winning and flourishing with the natural eyes, but God through His Word and Spirit reminds us that evil and it's doers will one day be done away with.
Finding yourself in the midst of a fiery furnace called "evil or evildoers"? Trust God and lean not unto your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.
Throughout scripture we see how God's people back then and now had and still have to deal with people that willfully do evil against us, BUT GOD!
God will avenge His people for He Himself declares in Romans 12:19-Dear friends, don’t try to get even. Let God take revenge. In the Scriptures the Lord says,“I am the one to take revenge and pay them back.” In other words, "Vengeance is mine says the Lord"!
People of God, the Lord our God says this concerning us in Isaiah 54:17-No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment, thou shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication is from Me, says the Lord.
God never said that the "weapon called evil" won't form against us, but He did say "IT WILL NOT PROSPER"!
This is a place to take a praise break right here for God is declaring that the battle is already over before it even begins.
The enemy of God and His people was defeated over 2k years ago at a place called "Calvary" where our Savior shed His blood once and for all.
Psalm 37:35-36 I have seen the wicked in great power and spreading himself like a luxuriant tree. 36 Yet he passed away, and he was not; I sought him, but he could not be found.
People of God, even in the midst of evil and evildoers, be of good courage and rest in the peace of God in knowing that EVERYTHING is in God's view and under His control.
Jesus foreknew what was to come for all of us, therefore, He Himself told us in John 16:33-I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But be of good cheer. I have overcome the world.”
People of God, let today be a day of new beginnings for you. A day that you have purposed in your heart to stand firm with God, even in the midst of evil and evildoers.
It is time to put on the whole armor of God that is found in Ephesians 6.
People of God, do not be shaken nor moved by what you see, but by what you know to be true in the Word of God.
When you have done all you can, "STAND STILL." As Moses told God's people when the evildoers of Pharoah's army was coming against them, I say the same to all of us on today "STAND STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD"!
God drowned the enemies of His people in the red sea as they chased after God's people. Our God is the same God yesterday, today and forever for He Himself declares that He changes not.
If God worked and moved on behalf of His people then, He is still the same God who is able to defend us today against evil and evildoers.
Evil on every hand? Trust God, get in the Word of God, meditate on it day and night, continue to pray and seek God's face, "Stand Still" with confidence that God will show up on your behalf and without a doubt, you WILL see the salvation of the Lord.
BE ENCOURAGED ON TODAY, GOD'S PEOPLE!
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for our God, the Lord God declares to His people on today that "VENGEANCE IS MINE!"
