1 Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. 2 But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. 3 They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. 4 But not the wicked! They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind. 5 They will be condemned at the time of judgment. Sinners will have no place among the godly. 6 For the LORD watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.
It seems God keeps reminding us over and over again in the Bible not to be jealous of seeing how the ungodly people are living like kings on the earth.
It is obvious in this scripture that their life will end up in destruction. Would you want your life to end up in destruction? No? Then stop looking at the wicked’s life and start looking at the great life that God has already prepared for you! Jesus Christ has already purchased through the cross a great life for you, to make sure you can have it!
So stop looking at others and claim your own great life from God now! God has enabled you to bear fruit in any season of your life. God has enabled you to prosper in ALL that you do. ALL means all. Not just to prosper financially. That is not ALL. God wants you to prosper financially, in your health, in your relationships, in ALL!
The great life God has for you is already there just waiting for you to claim. When envy starts to creep in, destroy its clutches by meditating and delighting on God’s promises, on God’s Word, on God’s work, on God’s presence and love for you. Continue to do the good works God has prepared for you to do. Honor God and make disciples! The Holy Spirit will surely come and give you streams of living water, security, comfort, confidence, peace and joy!
