Thursday's Word

Psalm 37:1-9, 27-29

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

Thanks, I needed that. Lots of things to fret about these days.

Rev. Paul said...

You're welcome, sir. I think we all need it, today.

I tend to fret about the condition of our country and all of the bad stuff going on. I had forgotten about this wonderful promise to us. I will continue to prepare for bad times, but without the fear. Thank you.

Rev. Paul said...

That's exactly it, Vicki - you got it. :)

That one about covers it all!

Rev. Paul said...

Agreed, GT. It's why Jesus said to "be anxious for nothing."
