Many righteous people saw the wicked prospering at their expense. They were filled with anger and worry. But the anger and worry only led them deeper into trouble.
We survey the past year and see many difficult and is discouraging events. We cry out for help. All the while we notice that the wicked seem to be prospering. Anger fills our heart. “It’s not fair. Why, God, do you permit these things to happen?” worry consumes us. “What will I do now? How can I make ends meet?” Anger and worry only lead us deeper into trouble. We feel helpless.
But the Psalmist suggests that we trust the Lord for help. He knows that God alone gives the victory. True happiness comes from the Lord, not the desires of our hearts. Ultimately the wicked will destroy themselves whiles the Lord upholds the righteous. We wait patiently for the Lord to act.
God, our help in ages of the past and our hope for years to come, sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to live on this earth and die for the world’s sins. He gives us an inheritance that will not fade. He freely gives us the trust in His promises. Anger and worry aside, we trust the Lord for help now and eternally.
