“Better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked; for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous.” Psalm 37:16-17
“The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in HIm; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.” Psalm 37:23-24
If we read the whole chapter of Psalm 37, we will see David’s comparisons between the wicked and the righteous. He addressed the seeming success of the wicked ones. And the righteous people should not be envious of the evil’s happiness because their end is destruction. But, those who trust in the Lord will remain.
How many of us have been jealous of the good fortune of our enemies? It is only natural that we wonder why immoral people prosper while some godly people don’t.
But, Psalm 37 teaches us that though the wicked may flourish, it is only temporary. Moreover, it indicates that trust in God, delighting in Him, and continual hope in His name bring abundant blessings.
The ultimate assurance for those who obey God will know eternal peace that is most worthwhile than all the possessions of the earth.
