(Pro 10:30 KJV) The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
I find this verse an herb of encouragement in the soup of despair. We think we live in difficult times. Obviously that is only comparing it to some idealistic romance we have in our head. Compared to most of the world, we are in paradise. Compared to historical conditions, we are living like emperors. We still get discouraged.
Keep in mind that being discouraged is a long way from being defeated.
(2Co 4:8-9 KJV) We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;So? Cheer up. Lean on God. Listen to His voice. Read His word. It will make a difference in your day.
