People who wait on God will not be put to shame under whatever condition. They will also be confident in their future, and they will have enough courage to do God’s will. The psalmist explained this better when he stated,
“Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret—it only causes harm. For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth” (Psalm 37:3-9).
All believers should trust God, and no one should envy the ungodly people. A person who reserves his or her trust in God should be assured of a better future. Meanwhile, people who lack trust in God may remain the devil’s prey. The enemy may turn their life into an operation field where he carries out his dirty plots. Therefore, everyone is encouraged to be God’s friend and trust him so that they can avoid the devil’s preying – and so that they can prosper as well.
Dear God, I understand that anyone who trusts you will be strong and have prosperity; therefore, I choose to trust you. I believe you and I believe your Son, Jesus Christ. I am utilizing this opportunity to ask for the grace to trust you more. I want to faithfully serve you, and I want to make you happy with my deeds. Please help me and give me your grace. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
