Current events have, for me anyway, highlighted evil doers. And not only that, it can seem that they’re winning.
Too often I focus on bad times, horrible events, evil deeds.
It is easy for me to fret about it.
Do not fret
But God tells me not to fret.
Do not fret because of evildoers. (Psalm 37:1)
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing. (Psalm 37:8)
God will deal with evil
God tells me He will deal with evil.
For evildoers will be cut off. (Psalm 37:9)
What to do instead
Focus on God instead of looking at troubling people and events.
Trust. Do good. Cultivate faithfulness. (Psalm 37:3)
Delight in the Lord. (Psalm 37:4)
Wait. (Psalm 37:7)
Listen to what God says. (Psalm 73:17-19)
Remember God’s promises to the righteous.
Wait! Give God time!
Praise His faithfulness!
