Do you ever feel like the “bad” is winning all around you while the “good” struggles?

Perhaps some days you wonder if it’s even worth the effort to seek what’s right. The Bible tells us God is mindful and working in the lives of those who serve Him. For example, take a look at what David wrote:

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD and He delights in His way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the LORD upholds him with His hand.” –Psalm 37:23-24 NKJV

David knew a lot about success and failure. He knew what it was to win big, and to struggle. Before his reign as king, there was a long period of time between the prophet anointing him, and the actual crowning moment. And along with waiting, he had to keep moving around to avoid King Saul’s attempts to kill him. There must have been many days where it seemed like the “bad” was winning, and God was busy elsewhere. However, he knew the Lord to be faithful and trusted Him even in the details.

Will you trust Him today even if it seems like the “bad” is winning? Will you faithfully walk the path He’s laid out for you, even if it feels lonely? The Lord is faithful and to know Him is the true definition of “winning”!
