Psalm 49 …Be not afraid when a man becomes rich, when the glory of his house increases. 17 For when he dies he will carry nothing away; his glory will not go down after him…..
Your meditational thought for today is from Psalm 49. There are times in all of our lives where we feel that the wicked seem to always prosper or get away with their scandalous ways. That is never the case. The wicked may appear to prosper, but there is a great equalizer that has been around since the fall of man, and that is, death. I came to learn a longtime ago, that for the wicked, this is as good as it gets for them.
Now, it is for us to pray for their salvation, because, none of us should ever wish eternal damnation on anyone. We must take time to remember for the believer, though we struggle from time to time, we are always encouraged by the fact that God has something for us in eternal glory that our earthly minds are not able to fully fathom. However, I do not want you to think that God is not doing anything for you now. Just look at the fact that He continues to sustain us, even in the midst of our struggles. He continues to provide for us day after day. He continues to protect us from dangers seen and unseen. And He continues to keep things from being worse than they could be. He is an all wise and all-sufficient loving God.
Blessings to you!
