Trust, Wait and Take Refuge

As I have been walking through this time of my life, I have been relying on God's Word to provide me with truth and direction. I was reading Psalms 37 and thought I should share the highlights. This is powerful stuff!

- Do not fret.
- Trust in the Lord.
- Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
- Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it!
- Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him.
- Do not fret.
- Do not fret (hmmmm...I am sensing a theme).
- Wait for the Lord.
- The Lord sustains the righteous.
- Those blessed by Him will inherit the land.
- The steps of a man are established by the Lord and He delights in his ways. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because the Lord is the One who holds his hand (Thank you Lord!).
- The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. The law of God is in his heart, his steps do not slip.
- Wait on the Lord and keep His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land.
- But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is our strength in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them because they take refuge in Him.

This is AWESOME encouragement to me! As I was reading this passage I was reminded that it is GOD who has the final say. He is the author if this story. This is HIS tapestry He is weaving. He holds all power and authority. Our part is to trust, wait and take refuge in Him.

Let it be God.

Let it be.
