Today Reminder – 06 March 2014 (Day 4 – My Strength)

A reminder for today
Don't worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither. (Psalm 37:1-2)

It is funny how we can so easily be influenced by society. We look at people and what they do and we start to envy them. Does that happen to you? Do you look at other and think “Wow, why can’t I look like that?” or “Why don’t I also just skip work?” or “Nobody will know, anyway they do it!”

I have written to you before that the enemy is not interested in those on the wrong path. He wants to trick us and make us fall. So he will do anything to make his ways look appealing and unfortunately he will use anything. One thing he has perfected is the media. Television can make the wrong path look so good and right and confuse so many. 

The worst is when you and I that are trying our best to do the right thing have to stand and watch when the wicked gets away with so many wrongs. It can upset me at times and really make me negative. 

Here it is clear in Psalm 37 that we should not worry about them and envy them, for they will soon fade away. Our time is short and to spend it being upset or envious on the wrong crowd is a waste. Take that energy and put it into your time with the Lord. Let  Him change your negative thoughts into life giving positive thoughts and remember that in the end they will fade and you will remain, because in Jesus you are eternal. 

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
