Psalm 37:7

On Friday I talked about God sending His comfort at just the right time.  If you missed it you can read it here.  A scripture was sent to me in an email on Friday and I have been keeping that scripture in my heart.  So this week I am going to memorize the entire scripture and pray on it daily. 

"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes." Psalm 37:7

It is always so easy to become angry or jealous when we see other people getting what we want.  Watching my husband get frustrated because his number was not selected was hard.  But we have to remember that God's timing is perfect and He has plans for us.  Sometimes we may not understand those plans or wonder why it is taking so long but knowing that God wants us to be still and wait for him brings much peace.  Because I know what God has planned for me is going to be much bigger than I can imagine.  Our faith becomes stronger because we are leaning on Him and giving everything to Him.  We need to keep our eyes on the prize and that is our walk with God.  We have to stop looking at what others have and what we do not.  We need to be happy with what we already have.  We may not get what the world says we need but having my Salvation is all I want. 


  1. Excellent post! This is so true. We live in a "keeping up with the Jones's" world, and sometimes it's hard to keep what is truly important in mind. Thanks for sharing!

  2. It is heartbreaking to watch your husband work so hard but not be acknowledged - we are in a similar position. At least we can be sure that God recognises him and has good plans for him.

  3. We are going through similar things right now too. Thank you for the reminder. Psalm 37 is a chapter I turn to often.


  4. Oh yes, it is a true grace to know how to be still before the Lord and trust his wisdom and find on joy and contentment in knowing Him the source of true wealth. Blessings on you and your family!
