Envious of the Wicked

Psalm 73:2-3
2 But as for me, my feet came close to stumbling, My steps had almost slipped. 3 For I was envious of the arrogant As I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

The Psalmist looked at the wicked, at those who do not follow God and became envious of them.  Sometimes we seem to think that the wicked prosper, that they are not chastened for their sins.  While we face punishment for our wrong doings, the wicked seem to get away from it.  How can that be?

It is really not the case.  God will punish the wicked for their deeds.  He will eventually bring them to justice.  They will be punished in this life and eternity.  They will not get away with their sins.

God does punishes His children as a Father.  He corrects us, that we might walk in the way that is right.  He corrects us, which is good thing.  A loving Father teaches his children how to do things the right way.  God is no different.

Thank you God, that wicked really do not prosper.  They will face the judge and justice will be served.  Thank you for the work of Christ and Your grace which allows me to be saved from the justice, which I deserve.  Help those who are reading this, who do not know you, come to know you.  I thank you that You love them and call them to Yourself.  Lead them to You, Oh God.  Amen.
