It can be a real challenge to wait on the Lord patiently, especially in the face of wicked, evil people. It can appear that those wrongdoers always come out on top.

Sometimes it seems like it doesn”t pay to be good! When the evil prosper and the good suffer, we may be tempted to doubt the goodness of God. You might even be tempted to say “Forget it!” and join the evildoers.

Those people may drive the nicest cars and own the most toys, but they are like grass that is green one day, but faded and dry the next.

Isn't it better to choose love and peace, kindness and patience, and self-control? It might not be very glamorous, but is has it's own beauty because it's the right thing to do, and because God has asked us to reflect his nature, not the nature of the evil one.

It's essentially an exercise in submission: submitting to God's will for you, even when it seems crazy.

You can be like David. Put on trust, put on obedience, put on patience, put on humility. Be delighted in the Lord!
