34 Wait for the Lord and keep his way,
and he will exalt you to inherit the land.
You will watch when the wicked are destroyed.
35 I have seen a wicked, violent person
well-rooted, like a flourishing native tree.
36 Then I passed by and noticed he was gone;
I searched for him, but he could not be found.
37 Watch the blameless and observe the upright,
for the person of peace will have a future.,
38 But transgressors will all be eliminated;
the future of the wicked will be destroyed.
39 The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord,
their refuge in a time of distress.
40 The Lord helps and delivers them;
he will deliver them from the wicked and will save them
because they take refuge in him.
God’s eternal promises are sure. He will keep secure those who trust in Him. Waiting for the Lord is of no consequence when our confidence is in Him and His ways. He will bring us into an inheritance that will flourish in His peace and a future that is secure. All of this is from Him because He is trustworthy and He proves Himself as a refuge to those who run to Him.
- Thank God for being your refuge in your time of distress.
- Thank Him for the ways He has delivered you from wicked people and situations.
- Thank Him for a future that is secure because you live in His presence.
- Praise Him for being your hope and salvation.
