The Lord tests us – the wicked get fire and brimstone.

The wicked take aim at the heart of those who are God’s – those who have the spirit of God in them and who seek righteousness.

Our lives might be difficult – God might test us.

But this is much better than how God deals with the wicked – God hates the wicked.

Psalm 11

1 In the LORD I take refuge ; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain ; 2 For, behold, the wicked bend the bow, They make ready their arrow upon the string To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 3 If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do ?” 4 The LORD is in His holy temple ; the LORD’S throne is in heaven ; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men. 5 The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates. 6 Upon the wicked He will rain snares ; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup. 7 For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness ; The upright will behold His face.
