Fret Not – He is Faithful!

June 11, 2014

Psalm 37:1-3 AMP
1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be envious against those who work unrighteousness (that which is not upright or in right standing with God).
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.

The cure for fretting = feed on His faithfulness!

From NetBible Ps 37:1

  • fret[02734] = be angry, burn, be displeased, grieve

From NetBible Ps 37:3

  • feed[07462] = pasture, tend, graze
  • faithfulness[0530] = firmness, fidelity, steadfastness, truth

Psalm 100:3,5 AMP
3 Know (perceive, recognize, and understand with approval) that the Lord is God! It is He Who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]! We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Psalm 91:1-4 AMP
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!
3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
4 [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

From NetBible Ps 91:4

  • faithfulness[0571] = truth, firmness, sureness, reliability, trustworthiness
  • buckler = protective wall

4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name!
5 For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

Fret Not!

Psalm 37:8 … Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret–– it only causes harm.

Fret Not!

Feed on His faithfulness

He orders the steps of the righteous
He upholds them with His hand
His saints are preserved forever
He is their strength in times of trouble
Because they trust in Him.

Commit your way to the LORD
Rest{Be still} in the LORD and wait patiently for Him
Trust in the LORD, and do good!

Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV … Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Father, when I start to ‘fret’ or become anxious help me to remember to feed on Your faithfulness. Thank You that as I come to You in prayer with thanksgiving, Your peace will guard my heart and mind thru Christ Jesus, Your son. Thanks be to God that this peace beyond understanding helps me to rest in Christ Jesus and wait patiently for Him!

Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. -Ps 37:3

Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it{act on your behalf}. -Ps37:5

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 carries out wicked schemes. -Ps 37:7

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. -Ps 37:23-24

The LORD loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. -Ps 37:28

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.-Ps 37:39-40
