I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Psalms 37:18,19“The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.”
From the above context we learn that God knows how long the upright will live, and all that will happen to them. God’s eyes are upon all the allotted days of their life; and nothing can shorten the days appointed to them. The wicked expect to live, hope to live, make their arrangements to live; but their eyes cannot rest on the future, and they cannot see the end – cannot tell precisely when they will be cut off. Some unexpected calamity – something which they cannot foresee may come upon them, and cut short their days long before the expected time. But this cannot happen to the upright. For God’s eyes are on the righteous. Nothing can prevent them from reaching their goals.
When trouble and calamity come, in seasons of famine or want, they will find their expectations, arising from confidence in God, fully met. And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. Their needs shall be supplied. God will provide for them. But the wicked and evildoers shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; indeed, you will look diligently for his place, but it shall be no more. The Psalmist David says, I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a native green tree, yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more; indeed I sought him, but he could not be found. This is the end of the wicked who rise up against the upright.
