Nigeria News: Why Do the Wicked Prosper? – Psalm 37

nigeria news

Nigeria News: In the word today injustice rains over justice which makes us angry; many times we ask why do some people grow wealthy by cheating others, while others work hard every day just to get by.

How can an evil man be healed of a disease, while a godly one withers away to death? It is easy to be angry when it seems that life is not fair.

David reminds us in Psalm 37 that anger and jealousy over injustice only lead us into sin. Instead David encourages us to trust God, commit your way unto Him, walk daily with Him, and you will receive His blessing.

Do you trust God, even when nothing seems to be going the way you would like it to?

Anger leads us into sin. Have you ever unleashed your anger about a situation by using words and actions that do not reflect God’s love and forgiveness? Verse 34 encourages us to “wait for the Lord.” Take a deep breath. Count to 10. Do whatever it takes to control impulsive anger. #nigeria-news

Can you remember a situation or circumstance where you or a friend did something bad in order to get ahead in some way? Was the “reward” worth it over time?

Why does it seem that sometimes evil is rewarded and good is punished? Can you trust God for final justice?

Nigeria News wants you to know that someone you know is struggling with an overwhelming situation. Maybe they are depressed, or having health problems, or struggling with a marital situation. They likely feel angry, upset and helpless. Share Psalm 37 as you pray with them.

Let go. Worry, anger, frustration eat away at our spirit. God desires that you have a bountiful life, trusting in His Word, His way. Surrender to Him, and allow Him to work in your heart.

In Romans 12:17-21, Paul exhorts us to “overcome evil with good.” Let your life be a reflection of Christ’s love and sacrifice, remembering that God will be the victor.
