1 Samuel 21, 22; 1 Corinthians 3; Ezekiel 1; Psalm 37

“…do not fret.” ~Psalm 37: 1, 7, 8

“Trust in the Lord” ~ Psalm 37: 3
“Delight in the Lord” ~ Psalm 37: 4
“Commit your way to the Lord” ~ Psalm 37: 5

I have had a really tough week.  It seems like the stress just keeps piling up and I can’t see an end in the near future.  I had one very restless night where I worried and got no sleep.  This psalm is a perfect reminder that we need not worry, but instead trust in the Lord.  Instead of worrying we can praise Him; delight in Him; trust Him.  He is in control of my life and this entire world.  The Lord will deliver me from this stressful time and instead of worrying I just need to praise Him.

I am reminded of an old song by the Imperials; Praise the Lord

Praise the Lord
He work through those who praise Him
Praise the Lord
For our God inhabits praise
Praise the Lord
For the chains that seem to bind you, serve only to remind you that they drop powerless behind you when you praise Him

Praise You, Lord!!  You are greater than all of my struggles and I do not need to worry!
