Why Worry?

Psalm37 God is in control and He alone knows the heart of both the righteous and the wicked. We look about and see the unrighteous and their sins and we are beside our selves wondering what is next. As it was then, so it will be now. There will always be those who reject God and live according to their own thoughts and actions. The psalmist says, yes there will be those who live according to the ways of the evil one, but you are protected by the loving hand of God. 

One verse jumps out of this psalm: Do not fret. That only leads to trouble.

We live in a community that has a website to share thoughts and seek help for many different things, but one thing is disturbing. People seem to share the troubles they face more often than the praises that come their way. They fret over things that are foolish and not worthy of their time. So this is a wise saying…do not fret! God is in control! 

Vs 25 is a key thought: I have never seen the godly abandoned. God knows who are His and He will not leave us or forsake us. He knows each hair on our heads and He has determined our day and our destiny. Today seek His way and you will be blessed. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. That which has come to you has been ordained in eternity past so DO NOT FRET!
