Another addition of Bro, Wally Fry’s study of the prophet Elijah. I love Elijah.
It has been several days since I wrote a post for this site. I want to express my appreciation to those who have showed interest in these writings, thoughts, and the word of God. Thank you, and God bless you richly with all heavenly blessings in Christ Jesus.
I will be doing thoughts on the Psalms, taking up where I left off the last time in Psalms which was at Psalm 36..
“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.” Psalm 37:1-6 (KJB)
Do not worry about what those who are working evil are doing; rather watch your own heart, and mind. Pray for those who are doing evil, and live your life delighting in the LORD God, and His word. Those who do evil will perish just as the grass, and the flower.
Those of us who are trusting in the finished work of Jesus Christ are assured of eternal life with Him; and that is forever and forever. Let us keep our eyes on the Lord and His work. We are not to close our eyes and try to convince ourselves that there is no evil; that would be dangerous and foolish. Our lives of trust, faith, and delight in the LORD will be repelling to all that is evil.
There is a phrase in verse four above “…He shall give you the desires of your heart”. Now many think this means material blessings, health, wealth, survival, security, success. When we delight in the Lord those things will become very secondary in our thinking. Our desires, when we delight in the Lord will be what He desires. He gives us the desires of His heart – heavenly blessing; grace, mercy, peace, joy, and power in prayer; just to name a few.
When the Christian walks with God He brings forth righteousness as light, and everything to do with it will be seen by all who know you.
Trust in the LORD today; delight in Him, and He will bring it to pass.
