A fresh look at Psalm 37:3-5

This scripture has become my “life scripture”, of sorts. I find myself referring to it often. God has used it to teach me many lessons.

“Trust in the Lord and do good and you will live securely in the land;
Delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart;
Commit your way to Him, trust in Him and on your behalf He will act.” Psalm 37:3-5

As I meditate on this scripture I see three invitations from the Lord:
– to trust in Him and do good
– to delight in Him
– to commit my way to Him

and, with each invitation comes a promise:
– that I will live securely in the “land” (I will dwell in the kingdom and know assurance of my faith)
– that I will have the desires of my heart given to me by Him
– that He will act on my behalf

As I accept the invitations that He extends, He is faithful to deliver on His promises! That is how I have experienced this scripture over the last 8 years, since I became acquainted with it.

I continue to meditate on it and find in it a lot revealed about the Lord. Accept His invitations, know the joy of His promises fulfilled in your life!
