Too Blessed To Be Stressed~

If you are  anything like me~you  watch the news and read the Internet headlines each morning. I get concerned for my children and now my grandchildren. I see moral decay on every hand.  It appears at times that our world is spinning out of control and Satan has finally tipped the scale to his side!

Then the Lord speaks to me~Psalms 37! Even when it may look like evil will overpower righteousness, God promises never to abandon His children (verse 25). Though we may experience the heartaches of a sinful world, God promises to never forsake us. He even promises the blessings will extend to the next generation. Praise the Lord!

Just thought I would spread some faith over fear this morning~

  Psalms 37:1   Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

  Psalms 37:2   For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

  Psalms 37:3   Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

  Psalms 37:9   For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

  Psalms 37:10   For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

  Psalms 37:11   But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

  Psalms 37:12   The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

  Psalms 37:13   The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

  Psalms 37:14   The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

  Psalms 37:15   Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

  Psalms 37:16   A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

  Psalms 37:17   For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

  Psalms 37:19   They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

  Psalms 37:20   But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

  Psalms 37:21   The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

  Psalms 37:22   For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

  Psalms 37:23   The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

  Psalms 37:24   Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

  Psalms 37:25   I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

  Psalms 37:26   He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

  Psalms 37:27   Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

  Psalms 37:28   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.

  Psalms 37:34   Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

  Psalms 37:35   I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

  Psalms 37:36   Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

  Psalms 37:37   Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end ofthat man is peace.

  Psalms 37:38   But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

  Psalms 37:39   But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

Psalms 37:40   And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him. 

 God gently reminds me it is my job to be reaching the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Simply sharing the most wonderful gift I have ever been given~eternal life and a life walking with my Saviour right now here on earth. I want the whole world to know how wonderful life is when you are walking and talking with the Heavenly Father!

I get great peace reading these psalms.

Thanks for the reminder!

Amen. I think it is the FoxNews show Hannity that the host, at the end of every show, simply says "Let your heart not be troubled". It reminds me that God is in control, even after seeing the evil that abounds in this world.

So true! The WORD of Almighty God brings us such peace in these times. We as Christians should be spending more time in His word where we will find the peace and rest in Christ Jesus.
Thank you for sharing Psalm 37. It's a great one!!

Thank you so much for posting the scriptures. It is amazing how God leads us... I was just thinking about how the country is such a sorry state and not looking good for the future. Our pest control guy stopped by and was telling us about being ripped off by clients, we are going through the same ordeal with our business. It seems that only after the damage was done that we discovered we were just on the bottom of a long list of victims. I thought I would retreat to blog land and I guess God needed me to know he is in control and is reminding me that I need to only worry about how I react and he will take care of the rest. Thanks so much

Thank you for this. It's nice to be uplifted. I too feel such despair for what I see in the world (and I fear for my children). The wisdom of this world is sneaky, deceptive, destructive, and unfortunately, very attractive to young people. Luckily there are parents (and grandparents!) who are committed to leading children down the right path. Thank goodness "He is our strength in times of trouble".

I too, feel the same when I go out onto the streets... the same moral decay is here too. Then I read my Bible... passages like Psalm 37 and one of my favourites the opening verses of Psalm 119 v 2-3 especially.. 'Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, Who seek Him with the whole heart' They do no iniquity; They walk in His ways.' I claim these verses for my children as I pray for them and future generations.
