God Provides What I Need When His Timing Is Right

In review of Psalm 37:3 it says, “Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.”

Bottom Line:
To be safe, trust in the Lord and do good.

What does this mean to me:
When I trust in the Lord and do good, I’ll live safely and prosper.

Psalm 37 is about trusting in the Lord and waiting patiently for him to act. I should never envy evil people, even though some may be extremely popular or excessively rich. No matter how much they have, their possessions will fade and vanish like grass that withers and dies. Those who follow God live differently from the wicked and, in the end, will have far greater treasures in heaven. I need to keep in mind that what an unbeliever gets on earth may last a lifetime, if they are lucky. What a believer gets from following God will last forever.

What I’m reminded of is to just trust God. I may not always get my way, but He will work things together for my very best in the long run.

Whether I want to believe it or not, an answer of “no” or “slow” to my request is very best answer for me. I’m only thinking in the moment, however God sees the entire picture.. not just the tiny snapshot that I see from my vantage point.

This morning as I work through my devotional, I’m encouraged to start a prayer journal and write down the things I would like for Him to do in my life, the areas I would like for Him to supernaturally touch. What places need supernatural intervention and inspiration.

Then make a prayer list and start sending my petitions to the throne room of God. He is waiting. Then, mark the dates beside your requests and have faith that in the season, the Lord will answer my prayers.
