Hang on!

Psalm 37:12-13 – “The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but The Lord laughs at the wicked for he knows their day is coming.”
So, do you ever get frustrated and think “this is not fair! Here I am doing everything I am supposed to do and getting nowhere. And over there so-and-so is making out like a bandit while doing nothing!”
I had a history teacher in high school that was a Cajun. She would always say to us, “Scholars, it is time to get some knowledge”, when she was ready to start class. When we would complain about things, she would smile, put her hand on our shoulder and say, “Life’s rough, then you die.”
Harsh, but sometimes you need a jolt of reality to get you out of your pity party.
David had the same problems we have today. People were out to destroy him. Sometimes we have to accept that there are people in the world that just refuse to do the right thing. And they don’t see a problem with that. But the problem they have is jealousy. That jealousy is caused by the peace they see in those who choose to do the right thing. They want to destroy that peace. They will plot and scheme until the whole world is as miserable as they are. Sick, right?
But here is the bright side princess, God laughs at their foolish decisions. He knows what is coming. When things are not going your way, when you feel like one more thing will push you over the edge, hang on. You have read the end of the book and you know where all of this is going. We are just called to faithfully hang on and let God do His thing.
Remember this: John 16:33 – “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

  1. The encouragement here is very strong. I seek to add similar content through my blot. There are enough instances of people sharing their trouble and not nearly enough like yours with answers. Thanks for carrying the light faithfully forward. God will bless you for this!
