Beware of the trap of the enemy

 

“Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked,”
  Psalm 73:1-3 KJV.

Beware of the trap of the enemy, of casting your eyes on the prosperity of the ones who love not God, when all the while you are suffering.  For you are not seeing the whole truth.

It LOOKS as though they have no trouble or difficulty, all you see is only what the natural eye sees.  If you could see the truth, if you could see what God sees, surely you would turn away in disgust and say, ‘Oh Lord, whatever the cost I will follow you, Keep me from turning to the right or left because of what I can only see with my eyes.

Circumcise my vision to see only You, and show me your heart, the heart of the ONE I love. Keep me from disappointment and discouragement, and teach me to walk in Your ways everlasting.

Read Psalm 37.

  1. Thank you,
    These days one really need to meditate at Psalm 37,
    because the wickedness and the unrighteousness
    in the world and among the world leaders is now so widespread so one can hardly not (without God’s Word)
    stand to be at this earth.
