Malachi 3:15 See how happy those arrogant people are. Everyone who does wrong is successful, and when they put God to the test, they always get away with it.”
The words of the Prophet Malachi might resonate well with many because the idea the the ‘good’ suffer and the ‘bad’ have it easy is shared by a lot of believers. For many, it appears it is a lot harder to be good and succeed than if one threw caution to the wind, abandoned God and his precepts and just jumped into the pool of the world around us.
For although there are somethings which promise immediate success, instant gratification or certain contentment; in the sight of God, they are unacceptable approaches. It almost seems as if the believer has to therefore try the harder than others to make the same headway. But God sets the record straight and says that is not the case.
My dear, those who remain faithful, can look forward to receiving their reward. Those who stay true, can expect to externally remembered by God. And when God remembers, like he did Noah, Abraham, Sarah and the thief on the cross; wonderful things follow. So beloved, rest assured, God remembers.
