Psalm 37 (By David, Contemporary English Version)

Trust the LORD

1 Don’t be annoyed by anyone who does wrong, and don’t envy them. 2 They will soon disappear like grass without rain. 3 Trust the LORD and live right! The land will be yours, and you will be safe. 4 Do what the LORD wants, and he will give you your heart’s desire. 5 Let the LORD lead you and trust him to help. 6 Then it will be as clear as the noonday sun that you were right. 7 Be patient and trust the LORD. Don’t let it bother you when all goes well for those who do sinful things. 8 Don’t be angry or furious. Anger can lead to sin. 9 All sinners will disappear, but if you trust the LORD, the land will be yours. 10 Sinners will soon disappear, never to be found, 11 but the poor will take the land and enjoy a big harvest. 12 Merciless people make plots against good people and snarl like animals, 13 but the Lord laughs and knows their time is coming soon. 14 The wicked kill with swords and shoot arrows to murder the poor and the needy and all who do right.  15 But they will be killed by their own swords, and their arrows will be broken. 16 It is better to live right and be poor than to be sinful and rich. 17 The wicked will lose all of their power, but the LORD gives strength to everyone who is good. 18 Those who obey the LORD are daily in his care, and what he has given them will be theirs forever. 19 They won’t be in trouble when times are bad, and they will have plenty when food is scarce. 20 Wicked people are enemies of the LORD and will vanish like smoke from a field on fire. 21 An evil person borrows and never pays back; a good person is generous and never stops giving. 22 Everyone the LORD blesses will receive the land; everyone the LORD curses will be destroyed. 23 If you do what the LORD wants, he will make certain each step you take is sure. 24 The LORD will hold your hand, and if you stumble, you still won’t fall. 25 As long as I can remember, good people have never been left helpless, and their children have never gone begging for food. 26 They gladly give and lend, and their children turn out good. 27 If you stop sinning and start doing right, you will keep living and be secure forever. 28 The LORD loves justice, and he won’t ever desert his faithful people. He always protects them, but destroys the children of the wicked. 29 God’s people will own the land and live here forever. 30 Words of wisdom come when good people speak for justice. 31 They remember God’s teachings, and they never take a wrong step. 32 The wicked try to trap and kill good people, 33 but the LORD is on their side, and he will defend them when they are on trial. 34 Trust the LORD and follow him. He will give you the land, and you will see the wicked destroyed. 35I have seen brutal people abuse others and grow strong like trees in rich soil. 36 Suddenly they disappeared! I looked, but they were gone and no longer there. 37 Think of the bright future waiting for all the families of honest and innocent and peace-loving people. 38 But not a trace will be left of the wicked or their families. 39 The LORD protects his people, and they can come to him in times of trouble. 40 The LORD helps them and saves them from the wicked because they run to him.

What does God want? – Micah 6:8 He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

What does God give? – John 3:13-19 13 No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. 14 And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. 17 Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.

And finally

How to get it done – Philippians 4:1313 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

“Let go and let God” is not merely a pleasant aphorism. It is the well-known secret of astoundingly successful people.

Be successful. Give it to God. Trust that HE can handle it because
