Your daily dose of Proverbs:
"No harm befalls the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble" - 12:21.
This verse does not mean the righteous never have any struggles, but their struggles are not due to their wicked deeds. God uses their struggles to build character and to teach them important life lessons, while the trouble of the wicked is often to confront sin and lead them to repentance. Are you rejoicing in your trials, knowing that God is in control of your life? Is God using your trouble to get your attention about some matter in your walk with Him or others? If you are going through tough times and wonder why the wicked are not, read Psalm 94 to be encouraged today.
