Here’s one voice joining that of the Psalmist urging you to trust in the Lord, regardless of the evil around you or the opposition you’re facing! Don’t be frustrated… Wait for the Lord to act – He will! In the meantime, continue doing what is right and trust Him! He is faithful! Ultimately you will be vindicated!
That’s the message of Psalm 37:1-11 – It’s God’s word, you can depend on it!
“Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off…In just a little while, the wicked will be no more! But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace.”
A good word from my time of “Coffee with the Lord” this Wednesday morning!
