Mid Afternoon Meditation 1-12-17

Don’t worry about the wicked
    or envy those who do wrong.
For like grass, they soon fade away.
    Like spring flowers, they soon wither.

Trust in the Lord and do good.
    Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you your heart’s desires. Psalm 37:1-4

What do you think God means when He says “you will live safely in the land and prosper?”

  1. Well, I can testify that God has kept me safe, and prospered me, in a “land” where wickedness and ungodliness have dwelt very close to me for 19 1/2 years. I may have often felt unnerved, even frightened–but no actual harm has come to me; and He has provided for all my needs, and prospered my faith especially. I wish I could tell you that it’s because I’ve always kept my eyes on the Lord–but that’s not accurate–and even if I’d managed that, then I might take the credit, when all the glory goes to our Faithful God 🙂
