Jefferson Vann shares a devotional thought about Psalm 37:10-11
Psalm 37:10 A little while, and the wicked person will be no more; though you look out for him, he will not be there.
Psalm 37:11 But the humble will inherit the land and will enjoy abundant prosperity.
not be there
The Bible nowhere promises the wicked an eternal life. Nor does it suggest that in the afterlife a person can change his mind and reverse his fate. Instead, the Bible clearly tells us that God will win the battle with rebellion by destroying it. At some point in the future, the wicked person will be no more.
Those who humble themselves and repent will inherit the land – a phrase that speaks to an eternal destiny that the wicked will not share.
Lord, thank you for the promise of eternal life – a promise that is exclusively ours in Christ.
