Psalm 37:37 Watch the blameless and observe the upright, because the person of peace will have a future.
Psalm 37:38 But transgressors will all be eliminated; the future of the wicked will be destroyed.
trusting for a future
The psalmist invites us to watch what is going on. If we pinpoint our observations too closely, we might miss reality. Reality is determined not by our present circumstances, but by our future. If we dare to trust God, we will see how faithful he is. If we turn our back on him because the dark side seems to be presently winning, we will miss that future.
Lord, we choose to stand by you in the present, so that we can have a future.
