Psalm 37:18-19

Psalm 37:18 Yahveh watches over the blameless all their days, and their inheritance will last permanently.

Psalm 37:19 They will not be disgraced in times of adversity; they will be satisfied in days of hunger.

Faith that outlasts bad times

The psalmist didn’t say that the blameless would never lose something that mattered to them. He said that they would not lose their inheritance permanently.

The psalmist didn’t say that the blameless would never see adversity. Adversity is a given in this evil age, but disgrace is not. Hunger may happen, but satisfaction in the goodness of the Lord will never be lacking.

Lord, thank you for a faith that outlasts bad times.
