Reading along with us in Psalm 31-40? Here’s today’s reading:

For they will soon fade like the grass

Trust in the Lord, and do good;
    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;

  1. This is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. So full of sound advice in confronting a world that is evil and precious, precious promises if we will only entrust ourselves to God. God is always higher and better and that’s why He can always overcome evil when and how He sees fit and therefore we do not need to resort to our devices of fear, anger or retaliation. Trust, delight, commit and be still are good words to use in considering our response to God. May that be true of all of us!
