Psalm 37 – Don’t Worry About A Thing

They look to be prospering. They get high positions and wield the power like they are to rule forever. The poor and needy look to be the first to suffer. 

It’s unfair. It’s not right. It’s upsetting. It’s aggravating. 

No wonder we are prone to fret, get anxious, worry and that leads to taking matters into our own hands. Railing against the wrong in a manner that only exacerbates the wrong. Thinking we can do better and only making matters worse. 

Trust in God can be hard when injustice appears so rife, but it remains the best course of action. It is not inaction or being passive. It is actively leaning and resting in the God of Justice and learning to be and do good. That way we see things from His perspective and see our way through challenging times. 

Only from that reassurance and trust can we learn to take the good advice: don’t worry about a  thing, because every little thing is going to be alright. 

For His Name’s Sake 

Shalom
