Just as evil doers are destined to “wither” and “fade,” those who do good in the sight of God and who trust in His word will prosper. They will “cultivate faithfulness.” This is encouraging news to the believer. We live in a world where it seems sometimes that “good guys finish last.” The truth is actually much more exciting than that. Those who trust God will “dwell [endure] in the land”. In other words, in God’s world, good guys last.
And we pray:
Lord, You have promised that if I trust in You and do good in Your sight, that I will prosper. You will ensure that my life will be full and that I will endure. My trust will be rewarded with good things. I thank You for Your promises and Your faithfulness in keeping them. Amen.
