Wisdom Matters (Day 32)


Sometimes, when we are experiencing spiritual discouragement, it is easy to long for a guilt-free, pleasure-oriented, godless life.

Listen to today’s Truth…

Choose to hope in God today.

Read the following Scripture…

Proverbs 23:17-18 says, “Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.”  

Consider these thoughts…

Sometimes, when we are disappointed in our Christian walk, we begin to envy those that live as if there is no God.
The key to this situation hope. Those that envy sinners are those that have begun to lose hope in the goodness of God.
Lift up your heads, Saints. There is still a future hope for you. Envying those that live apart from God is envying death. The fact that you still live means that God is not done with your story yet.

Apply the truth! The following are optional things to do…

  • Spend time today thanking God for all the ways He has blessed you.
  • Bless and encourage those that do not know God around you today.

Pray…

  • For the unbelievers in your life.
  • For a deeper pleasure and joy in His Presence.
