Through the ages—it seems even more so today—the question has been asked; why do evil and wicked people prosper? I’m learning to not be bothered by such things. I have all I need, and what someone else has—whether they deserve it or not—has absolutely no bearing on my peace and joy.
And, to be honest with you, the latter part of this verse is of no comfort to me. Knowing evil and wicked people will not spend eternity with the Lord does not bring me joy. My hope is that all men and women will come to believe in Jesus and be saved.
We should not fret or be envious regarding the success of anyone. We should pray for their salvation, and know that no matter what they might do or accomplish, God is using them in His plan.
Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of the wicked, for the evil man has no future hope, and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out. Proverbs 24:19-20
