Prosperity of the wicked and the Affliction of the Righteous


Psalm 37:1-8

There are several explicit statements that begin the thirty seventh Psalm The first eight verses really define what a Christian should be.

  1. Fret Not
  2. Trust in the Lord
  3. Delight thyself also in the Lord
  4. Commit thy way unto the Lord
  5. Rest in the Lord
  6. Cease from anger and forsake wrath.

Let me cover this real quick.

  1. Do not let the success of the wicked bother you, because their end is terrible.
  2. Trust in the Lord because He will always stand with His faithful servants to protect and bless them.
  3. Be happy that you are a child of the King and receive His blessings and an inheritance that fadeth not away.
  4. Give yourself completely to the Lord. Allow Him to direct your path through the pitfalls of this degenerate world.
  5. Take a break in the Lord, not from the Lord. Get away from the noise and bustle of the world. Settle into the arms of the Lord and find rest and peace.
  6. Quit being mad at everyone. Realize your own faults and failures and you can better understand that others are not perfect. Get over yourself.
