In Jesus Name,
Someone asks a question: Why do the wicked ones have everything they need and prosper, while many believers are in need. This question was asked almost 3000 years ago by the king and prophet David. He pondered that in spite all those people were continiously talking wickedly, not knowing God and denying Him, but still in all that had everything that one needed, they lived in prosperity and comfort. David spoke about these people in Psalm 73:3-12 For I was envious of the boastful, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For there are no pangs in their death, but their strength is firm. They are not in trouble as other men, nor are they plagued like other men. Therefore pride serves as their necklace; violence covers them like a garment. Their eyes bulge with abundance; they have more than heart could wish. They scoff and speak wickedly concerning oppression; they speak loftily. They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walks through the earth. Therefore his people return here, and waters of a full cup are drained by them. And they say, “How does God know? And is there knowledge in the Most High?” Behold, these are the ungodly, who are always at ease; They increase in riches.

God did not leave this question unanswered, but rather allowed David to see the end of those wicked people and their destruction, as he writes in Psalm 73,17-20: Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I understood their end. Surely You set them in slippery places; you cast them down to destruction. Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors. As a dream when one awakes, so, Lord, when You awake, you shall despise their image. And this motivated David and gave him a clear vision in his walk with God and in the fear of God, as he said in Psalm 73:28: But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Your works.

The name of our God is a strong tower, we run into it and be saved. (Proverbs 18:10) He protects and surrounds us and saves us from all troubles and hardships. Jesus is His name and He is the almighty God. es
