Stand in the face of trials


The Great Day of His Wrath

The Great Day of His Wrath (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

There are times when we become angry due to the way the world lived around us. Sometimes we are drawn into the conflict and begin to fight according to the flesh. It is good to be angry against the world but to sin we must refrain, for God is our defense and our keeper.

Soon the unrighteous will be cut off from the earth, they will be cast out of it, but those who obey the Lord grieving in their spirit waiting for the day of redemption shall find rest on the Day of the Lord. We have a promise from our Father. Trust in Him and keep His word despite all that is happing around us. Blessed are they that are persecuted for doing what is right, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Psalms 37:1-9 A Psalm of David. Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
