Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in
their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
It is very easy to compare the success of others to your life. Especially if you are in a difficult
season of life. The distractions of the world and the comparisons to others can leave you feeling
disappointed with your life.
These words of David have been of great comfort to many who have been overwhelmed by the
apparent success of others. David reminds those to patiently wait on the Lord and keep your
eyes focused on Him. Comparison is the way of the enemy and he would love to have you
believe you are living a life of despair.
In this scripture you are to rest in Him and that he will fight your battles and ultimately succeed.
In order to rest in Him, you must slow down to quiet your mind and attune to His will.
