Fret or Faith

Which action words can you relate to? Make it personal, take your time and meditate on the Word of God. Do you want your breakthrough? Then…,

“Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Did you hear that, God does not want us to fret, it’s not good.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret—it only causes harm.

Again that’s the third time, it’s said not to fret. It’s not good for our health or relationships.

For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more. But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming. The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand. Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace. But the transgressors shall be destroyed together; The future of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, And save them, Because they trust in Him.”

Psalms 37:1-13, 23-24, 37-40 NKJV

Can you relate to fretting, trusting, envying, falling, resting, delighting or inheriting as it states above?

Why would God the Creator of heaven and earth say “do not fret,”3 times and surround it with solutions?

He knows our limitations and how much we can bear. To each one of us was given a measure of faith.

Let’s surrender our fretting for faith and watch the substance of things hoped for, come to pass.

More joy and smiles from our hearts will overflow and your situation will now be a miracle.

Lord please heal my heart, I surrender my fretting, envious ways and impatience. I am intentionally trusting and waiting on you, because Your word says it I believe it. In Jesus Name Amen
