Proverbs 10:24

“What the wicked fears will come upon him, but the desire of the righteous will be granted.” (NASB)


“What the wicked (rasha`: ungodly, guilty one, guilty of sin) fears (megowrah: terror) will come upon him, but the desire (ta'avah: wish, longings of one's heart, objects of desire) of the righteous (tsaddiyq: just, lawful) will be granted (nathan: given, delivered, set, up appointed, bestowed, to be put upon).”


What the guilty and ungodly one fears will come upon him, but the longings of the lawful and just will be bestowed upon him.


The key in this verse is the distinguishing attributes of each man. One is in defiance of God’s laws, in need of vindication and is found fearful. The other is just, keeping the laws of God and his desires are granted. Interestingly, they both get what their hearts are set on. So my question for you is this – are you a confident son or daughter of God that lives righteous before God and men or are you a fearful worrier that is enamored with what horrible thing might await you around each corner? The Body of Christ is to be teeming with overcomers! It is time for those who are in Christ to rise up and see their victory! Today, long for His Kingdom to be released on earth as it is in Heaven, through you! Your future is in your hands.
