Midweek Message May 11, 2016

I love the opening verses of Psalm 37 because they all begin with action verbs and, collectively, they cover the essence of the faith-filled life.  Take a look: Trust in The Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture (Psalm 37:3) Trust in, believe in, connect deeply with, walk with, hold onto, and love – The Lord; make Him first in your/my life.  And do good. It’s saying the same thing as the two great commandments, but just uses different words:  Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and your neighbor as yourself:  Trust God and do good (to others).The result:  you will dwell in the land (the land of knowing you are doing the right thing and are in the right relationship!) and enjoy safe pasture (think Psalm 23 – The Lord is my Shepherd… green pastures). Four ideas that will serve you well today:  Trust, do good, dwell, enjoy.  Say them again and say them often.  Trust, do good, dwell, enjoy – all day, every day.
