The house of the wicked will be destroyed, but the tent of the upright will flourish. Pro 14:11
Many a times we feel people who do wrong things like harm others are enjoying the pleasures of the earth. They seem happy and satisfied in the kind of life they live and their cunning and arrogant character is fed. They seem to succeed in all they do while the upright and the righteous seem to suffer.
The word of God says the house of the wicked will be destroyed. Whatever may seem to be with the wicked their house will be destroyed meaning all that they think they have will be gone in a blink of the eye. All the fortune they have stored up will be gone. All the family they have will desert them. They will fall from their place in no time because their trust is not on the Lord. They have not put their foundation on the Rock. Their foundations are shaky. No matter what they do to keep it from being destroyed, it will not be of any use.
The righteous or the upright will flourish because their trust is in the Lord. They may seem to suffer in this world but their tent will not be destroyed, it will flourish. Not only in this world will they flourish but they will live through happily even in eternity. They will have no fear about anything. The people who trust in the Lord need fear no bad news. All they do will be blessed. God will prosper their house and all they things they do will prosper. The business they do, their family, their relationship, their friends and all.
So friends fear nothing, trusting in the Lord is all you need to do to be called upright. Abraham trusted the Lord and it was considered as righteous for him. That's all is what we need to do and we will flourish!!
