“Do not worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither.”- Psalms 37:1-2
I heard a preacher once say, growth and swelling are not the same thing. Sure in both situations something is growing. But swelling in the body is linked to inflammation which is no bueno. Sometimes we look at growth happening in others who are “doing the wrong thing” and we get envious or frustrated with God.
Sure something gets bigger with inflammation, but it’s linked to inflection, or for my fellow allergy sufferers, to coming into contact with something your body rejects. Inflammation brings eventual pain and can be fatal in some circumstances.
Growth sometimes is slow, but it should happen naturally.
Don’t worry about what’s happening for others. God sees you, he knows when’s the right time to give you whatever you’re praying for.
