Do Not Fret

Description

In this life, sometimes evil will prosper, but we can rest in the faithfulness of a God who does not overlook sin or neglect His children.

Read: Leviticus 6:1-7:27 & Mark 3:7-30 & Psalm 37:1-11 & Proverbs 10:3-4

Some people cheat and get away with it. Some people lie and are never caught. Others steal and remain unpunished. Even worse, many people who lie, cheat and steal actually prosper from their shameful endeavors. Honestly, just thinking about these injustices makes me angry with the offenders and frustrated that I even attempt to do the right thing.

Maybe David wrote Psalm 37 on a day when he felt the same anger and frustration. In the first 11 verses we are urged three times not to worry about the actions of the evildoers. Maybe David wrote this Psalm to remind himself of the reason he didn’t need to worry: God’s goodness and faithfulness. Among the suggestions against stress, we are exhorted to trust, wait, rest, enjoy and delight in the Lord.

In this life, sometimes the evil will prosper, but we can rest in the faithfulness of a God who does not overlook sin or neglect his children. Today, thank God that he is faithful and thank him for the guarantee that “the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace.”
