I have been bad about reading the Bible lately so I saw it staring at me in our living room and grabbed it.
It flipped open to this Psalm today and it’s a good one!
Do not fret because of evil men
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.
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.
May God give you the courage to trust him enough to do the “good” he is asking you to do! I can tell you the good God asked me to do but what I am finding out is this, it is different for everyone. It is still scary, not easy, and usually against what “feels” normal or even right but it is different. You and God have to figure this out. The Bible says we work out our own Salvation with fear and trembling.
For Esther it was planning two dinners parties
For Gideon it was giving 300 men a chance of a lifetime
For David it was killing Goliath
For Rahab it was hiding some very courageous spies
For Hosea it was marrying a prostitute
For Moses it was standing before Pharoah delivering him some very bad news
To do the good God is asking you to do takes crazy trust. We sing about it all the time, talk about it all the time, write songs about it, but now you have the opportunity to act on it and get a front row seat! You get to watch God do what he does best, rescue!!! You get to see him do this with your very own eyes! You are so lucky!!!!
…trust him and he will do this!
