Faith Filled Friday: The Evildoers

October 25, 2019

In Bible Study class today Juanita pointed out that verses 1 through 8 applied to what a Christian should do. God takes care of his own and we should not fret nor worry over every little thing. I am very good at fretting and worrying. I’ve had a lot of years to perfect the art of worry. Letting go and being forgiving have been more difficult to learn.
Another part of the chapter I liked were verses 9 through 18. These verses are letting us know that the devil and his followers will get their due. Verse 13 tells us that God laughs at them, but I’m not certain I should be so gleeful about it. I do feel sorry for those that will spend eternity in hell.
Remember that the –eth ending on a word means ongoing, continually. – Connie

Psalm 37: 1-18
1. Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3. Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shall thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4. Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass,
6. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
10. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12. The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13. The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
14. The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15. Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16. A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.
18. The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
