Trust, commit and be still

Psalms‬ ‭37:3-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬ says, “Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun. Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.”

In this passage we see a number of things that God tell us to do and we see a number of positive outcomes.

1. Trust in the Lord and do good. Then we will live in safety and prosper (v3)

2. Take delight in the Lord. Then he will give us the desires of our hearts (v4)

3. Commit all to the Lord and trust Him. Then He will help (v5)

4. Be still in God’s presence. Then He will act on your behalf (v7)

In these points we see that if we look to God and put our hope and trust in Him, He will bless us with good things.


Dear God, I give my life completely to You. I commit everything I am and have to You. Help me to continue to trust in You, take delight in You, and be still in Your presence. Amen.
