“1 A psalm of David. Don't worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. 2 For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither. 3 Trust in the LORD and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. 4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desires. 5 Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you. - Psalm 37:1-5 NLT
Hello family, There is a path that God has for each of us to walk. On this walk we will see many things that we desire that we see the unsaved (wicked) have that we don’t. David lays it out perfectly for us on how we should respond. “3 Trust in the LORD and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.” Don't go and try this worlds methods of getting things done! But look to God for your instruction.
This world may look like its on the right track but all that looks good ain't Good! We know and hear Gods voice when He tells us to do some thing. Don’t be disobedient and do the opposite! Or not move at all “17 Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it. - James 4:17 NLT” God gave us that instruction for a reason, it is in our best interest to obey.
“4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desires.” If we find our delight from God our focus will shift from our hearts desires. Our Focus will be on our great God. look at what He has done for you already, be thankful and praise Him! This will encourage you to follow Him all the more. And when He instructs you to do something you will be in position to hear Him and take the appropriate action. When we are obedient to the Lord he will bless us with our hearts desires.
“5 Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you.” Simply put, let the activities of your day be guided by the Lord. What ever you do, do it for His glory! Let everything you do be submitted under His direction. And he will give you the strength to accomplish them.
Much Love & God Bless
