Psalm 37:7 –
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for him: fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.
Relying on God is man’s greatest wisdom. The Bible teaches about relying on God and the Gospel helps you learn to rely on God in any difficulty and danger and gives you confidence and power.
Instead of worrying and envying, in the book of Psalm David counseled us to trust God and work for His glory. When we look at the prosperity of the wicked we are often distracted.
I remember the days when I failed in several businesses.
I started international courier cargo in 2013 and failed.
I started Marine container leasing in 2014 and failed.
I started a civil construction company in 2014 and again failed.
I started a business in Inland water transportation 2014 and failed.
I started a Stock broking company and then failed again in 2016 while I was trying to establish my contract labor company for construction business.
I failed and became miserable with all debts in 2017.
I saw many who were behind me and saw me as competitors who are well established today and living the best of their life.
But there was something I strongly believed was that I must live and work as God had planned for me. I strongly believe that I will succeed but must follow God’s plan. I met with a severe accident on 19 November 2019 and was unconscious for 3 days. My family members were informed but God had a plan, since then and till now I am driving things with the Glory of God the Father, in times of pandemic every nation has its own conditions and repercussions to address the issue, but we need to understand how God wants us to behave with each other. I have now new people in my life who are helping me find a new job, there are people who are trying to understand my business concept there are people who followed me and looking for opportunities to fix me so that I can move to US as I was cheated by an attorney from New York for H1-B VISA. The Bible teaches us and counsels us of God, to leave all worry and envy and enjoy the blessings God gave us. This means to cheer the heart and mind by considering and by faith receiving multiple blessings of God……
The reason many believers do not delight in God is that they do not know him very well, and the reason they do not know him very well is that they do not spend time with him. Do not think first of the desires of thy heart but think first of delighting thyself in thy God. If thou hast accepted him as thy Lord, he is thine; so, delight in him, and then he will give thee the desires of thy heart.”
If you have God for your ‘enduring substance,’ you can face all varieties of conditions, and be calm, I have no business, for instance, to expect God to save me from the natural consequences of my own worldliness. If I have taken up a course from eager desires for earthly good without due regard to His will, I have no right, when things begin to go awry, to turn round to God and say, ‘Lord! I Wait upon Thee to Save Me.’
He who has delighted in the Lord, and committed his way unto Him, can venture to front whatever may be coming. The person can claim from his faithful Father the protection and the peace which He has bound Himself to give.
This will be blessed then to leave all the possible to-morrow with a very quiet heart in His hands!
In His Glory
