Do Not Fret, And Be Not Envious Of Those Who Do Wrong
Are many people not upset with their existing condition today? Inflation is taking the toil, bills are skyrocketing. You look at your peers, they seem to be doing better, are they not? You feel those who don’t deserve it are getting it. So, yes! Many, and probably you, might be extremely upset over your circumstances right now.
Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong. (Psalm 37:1)
Are many people not upset with their existing condition today? Inflation is taking the toil, bills are skyrocketing. You look at your peers, they seem to be doing better, are they not? You feel those who don’t deserve it are getting it. So, yes! Many, and probably you, might be extremely upset over your circumstances right now. It may be some slight disappointment, ungratefulness, or discourtesy.
If worry and being upset were ever justified, it would have been a kind of crypto-mining today, to solve the many circumstances of our lives.
Today's world seems to make those who do wrong ascend to the highest places of power and influence, to tyrannize their brothers who are less fortunate. Sinful men and women strutted through the land with arrogant pride and basked in the light of great prosperity, while good people became fearful, worried, and upset about the status quo. Brethren, do not fret and never get unduly upset! Stay cool! Hold your peace. For a good reason, worrying will not help you, but instead, heats up your bearings and does not generate any steam to keep you going and sailing towards your goal.
Worrying has never helped and will not propel your life locomotive to keep on moving in the right direction. Worrying and envy are hindrances to your progress. And getting upset is like, when dry surfaces are grinding against each other, you find bruises and friction. Suddenly your life is no longer running smoothly. Please, take this moment to appreciate the Grace of God over your life, and let go of all the envious attitudes and emotions.
No point getting upset because the things of the world add no eternal mileage to the most important eternal journey ahead of us. Be content in what God has committed to you, if you cannot get what you like, love what you can get. We have been called to a higher life, we cannot afford to be upset and envious of others. Live in peace, and stand out among the outstanding.
Be rest assured that you have a God whose grace is strength and life, His love is bloom and flower. Trust Him, for He makes the restless heart, still; don’t fret and worry, for peace is God’s own smile.
Do not struggle to be free, rest, within His tender power, His life is in your life, and from Him, you may not flee. Just pray, have faith, love, and calmly trust in your waiting… and when His help shows up, you will laugh loud last, knowing His intervention comes with the redeeming of times. Do not hesitate to share with family, friends, and colleagues. I'm praying for you always.
God Bless You. D.L. Marshall
