The LORD  Laughs  at Him

All around the world,  Christians suffer for their faith.     They face martyrdom,  mocking,  beating,  unjust judicial decisions,  slander,  imprisonment,  and rejection  of every sort.     At times like these,  King David says  in Psalm 37:1,

Fret not yourselves  because of evildoers,
Be not envious  toward wrongdoers.

David goes on  to remind God’s children  of God’s trustworthiness  and ability  to carry us through every situation,  as we trust Him  and wait patiently  for His work  to be done.     He wants us  to remember  in Psalm 37:12-17,

The wicked plots  against the righteous
And gnashes  at him  with his teeth.
The LORD laughs  at him,
For He sees his day  is coming.
The wicked  have drawn  the sword  and bent  their bow
To cast down  the afflicted  and the needy,
To slay those  who are upright  in conduct.
Their sword  will enter their own heart,
And their bows  will be broken.
Better is the little  of the righteous
Than the abundance  of many wicked.
For the arms  of the wicked  will be broken,
But  the LORD sustains  the righteous.

From our earthly perspective,  it appears  that evil  is the winner  in all their “wicked plots  against the righteous”.     But,  in spite  of all the evils  they carry out,  “The LORD laughs  at him”.     God  knows  the judgments  He will carry out  on the wicked.     They won’t be getting away with anything.     Actually,  their continual evils  are only increasing  their  eternal punishments.     They are silly and senseless  in their wicked efforts,  but cannot understand that.     They can’t take anything  with them and will die in eternal defeat.

We can  trust the LORD  and,  “Fret not yourselves because  of evildoers”,  because we know,  “the LORD laughs  at him”.

As our Savior sustains us,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for Your constant care.”

Love,
Margaret
