Daily Wisdom 268: Proverbs 12:21

Proverbs 12:21 (NKJV) — 21 No grave trouble will overtake the righteous, But the wicked shall be filled with evil.

No grave trouble for the righteous. Righteous persons can be assured that nothing will happen to them that God does not permit, and if God permits something, the end results will not be evil. Some situations may be painful or even tragic, but those who are righteous know that ultimately God will work all things together for their good (Romans 8:28). Those who are wicked, however, will experience one troublesome event after another with no assurance that good will ultimately prevail. Their lives are full of evil and calamity.

Those who are people of faith but who have suffered painful experiences may be interested in my book If God Loves Me, Why Am I Hurting? The book is available at pentecostalpublishing.com, amazon.com, and as an Apple Book.
