Absence of Wicked Men
“For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.” Psalm 1:6 (NIV)
The good news about bad news is it will not last forever, because the wicked will not last forever. Soon the righteous will no longer be subjected to evil men who force their selfish will upon their neighbors through crime, violence, and false accusations. The deeds of the wicked will finally be absent from our conversations, our lives, and our world because in Heaven the former things will be no more.
We may be forced to endure undeserved hardship and dishonest ridicule but it can only last a season. Our earthly lives are but a vapor compared to the ceaseless eternal ages of peace that we will have in Heaven.
Let’s pray today that the injustice and wickedness of our world will not take our eyes off Heaven.
