Don’t follow after the wicked ones or be jealous of their wealth. Don’t think for a moment they’re better off than you. They and their short-lived success will soon shrivel up and quickly fade away like grass clippings in the hot sun. Keep trusting in the Lord and do what is right in his eyes. Fix your heart on the promises of God and you will be secure, feasting on his faithfulness. Psalm 37:1-3 TPT
If ever there was a time we needed to hear these verses, it’s today. There are a whole lot of wicked and wealthy leaders who are making decisions that are hurting the people of this nation. But let’s be clear–they are not better off than you are, not by a long shot! You are a child of the Living God but their god is their money which will soon be taken from them.
How do I know this? Because God said that the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just and that is you and me. The just will live by faith, faith in the Son of God. That is also you and me. And those who hope in the Lord will not be ashamed, their enemies won’t triumph over them.
That’s good news, my friend! Keep trusting in the Lord. Keep doing right things, keep your eyes on Him and let Him do the heavy lifting. Our job is to trust, His job is to keep His Word. Fix your heart on the promise of God. That word fix means to become set; assume a rigid or solid form. Be solid in your trust. Don’t let what you see in the natural cause you to be weary or unstable.
When you do this, you will feast on His faithfulness. Not just one day, but forever! You’ll become so satisfied doing His will, you won’t even want to entertain or be jealous of those who do evil. Your heart will be satisfied with the good things God has provided, for He will always take care of you when you take care of what is His.
