When Evil Prevails
“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.” Psalm 37:7 (NIV)
Do not let the evil doer steal your peace and shake your faith when they prevail in their wicked ways. The wicked may taunt you with their wealth and achievements, but they will face the judgment of God. You may lack and want, but the Lord knows and His plan for your future exceeds your best imagination, so when evil men confront, be still and wait for the Lord to revenge.
If you find yourself struggling with maintaining righteousness despite being subjected to the ridicule of those prevailing in wickedness, remind yourself that their worldly assent is all they have but you have eternal Heaven in your future.
Let’s pray today that we may stand strong in the Lord and not lose heart when evil men prevail.
