Daily Devotional – Be Still, Be Patient

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Psalm 37:1-9. With all that is going on, so often I find myself just wishing that the world would fade away from existence. Overwhelmed with the sin and actions of this world leave me kicking and screaming.

“Do not fret because of those who are evil
    or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,
    like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good;
    dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight 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 righteous reward shine like the dawn,
    your vindication like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord
    and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
    when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
    do not fret—it leads only to evil.
For those who are evil will be destroyed,
    but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.”

I so often react to life’s situations!

God has called us to not fret or worry in the face of adversity. It doesn’t matter how daunting the situation or enemy that is in your face, our Father tells us to be patient. He calls us to come into His presence and just soak Him up.

Our heavenly Father can see far beyond our focused vision and He has secured the outcome. Not only has Jesus secured the victory, but our Father is constantly working all situations for His glory and our benefit.

No matter where you stand today, even if it feels that you have no support and strength. Know that the lover of your soul and creator who loves you far more than we could ever understand. Let us step back from our retaliation, and be still!  

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you that You are always in control and working. I place my hope and trust in You to be the just judge that protects and fights for me. 

In Your Name,

Amen
