Psalm 37:4-6

Sam Petitfils

"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: he will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun."  Psalm 37:4-6

Today, we look at more key words and phrases.  The first is found in verse 4, "delight yourself in the Lord."  When we find no delight in this world, when we face disappointment and discouragement, we have One we can look to for peace.  Here God invites us to "delight" in One who will never disappoint us.

Next, "commit" your way to Him.  Whatever obstacles and challenges you may face should be committed to the Lord.  Then look at God's promise in verse 6, "He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun."

You might be tempted to take matters into your own hands, especially when you've been hurt or slandered by others.  But, remember that God cares about justice more than we do.  When we commit our cause over to Him, He has a way of righting the wrong, usually in this life.  On the other hand, when we strike back, we almost always complicate matters worse.

Application

1.  When you feel alone and have the odds stacked against you, turn things over to God and ask for His help.

2.  Someone has said, "When you strike back at you enemy, you dig two graves: your enemy's and your own."

3.  Be very patient and wait on God's help.  Soon, He will act on your behalf if you place your trust in Him.

4.  To "commit" means literally to "roll your way upon the Lord" as one puts a heavy burden on the shoulders of someone stronger.  God is strong enough for the greatest of your burdens.


Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Verse

O soul, are you weary and troubled, no light in the darkness you see

There's light for a look at the Savior, and life more abundant and free

Chorus

Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace
