Winsome Wednesday - Grabbing Hold of Psalm 37

I read Psalm 37 this morning and at first I just sort of scanned over it.  Then I reminded myself to actually focus on the words already!!!!  I found some seriously good gems there!  Some needed encouragement and direction for how to cope day to day....

Psalm 37 Nuggets:
  • Fret not yourself because of evil-doers (vs 1)
  • Trust in the Lord and do good (vs 3)
  • Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (vs 4)
  • Commit your way to the Lord (vs 5)
  • Be still and rest in the Lord (vs 7)
  • Wait patiently and lean on the Lord (vs 7)
  • Cease from anger and forsake wrath (vs 8)
  • Wait and hope and look for the Lord (vs 9)
  • The meek shall inherit the earth (vs 11)
  • The Lord upholds the righteous (vs 17)
  • The righteous shall not be put to shame (vs 19)
  • The righteous deal rightly and give (vs 21)
  • The steps of a righteous man are directed and established (vs 23)
  • Depart from evil and do good (vs 27)
  • The righteous shall inherit the land (vs 29)
  • The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom (vs 30)
  • The law of God is in His heart (vs 31)
  • Wait for and expect the Lord and keep and heed his way (vs 34)
  • The salvation of the righteous is of the Lord (vs 39)
  • He is their refuge and secure stronghold (vs 39)
  • The Lord helps them and delivers them (vs 40)

I hope this encourages you today as it has me.

God bless

  1. Tracy, yes indeed, this was most encouraging. I looked at your list and thought just about the verbs. What a textbook for living for Him:

    Fret not, trust, delight, commit, be still, rest, wait, lean, hope and look...

    For He is our salvation, our refuge, our deliverer. And we will inherit His Kingdom.

    THAT is Good News!
