Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! Psalm 37:1
David reminds us not to worry about the actions of those who do evil or to become envious when they appear to succeed. David also said that he would have lost hope if he did not hold unto the promise of God that he would see good things while he was alive. Psalm 27:13
David again said that his feet almost stumbled and his steps nearly slipped. Because he was envious of the arrogant, when he saw the prosperity of the wicked. Psalm 73:2-3
It is easy to become daunted when we see people around us who are cutting corners, acting deceitfully who seem to prevail and make progress. It can be difficult to work hard and feel like all your efforts go unnoticed while others do wrong and still get ahead.
David said that the wicked may spring up like the grass but that they would soon be cut down and wither like the herb. Psalm 37:2 David reminds us that the wicked would soon be cut off because God loves justice. He encourages us to delight in the Lord and he would give us the desires of our hearts. To wait patiently for the Lord and to be of good courage as God will reward us for being faithful.
God is using this test to refine you and to prepare you for greater things. Trust in him and do not fret or grow weary. Friends may fail and acquaintances grow weary but God will not forsake you. He will never leave you alone but will accomplish his plans and purpose towards you.
