34 Wait on the Lord,Psalm 37:34-40
And keep His way,
And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power,
And spreading himself like a native green tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright;
For the future of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together;
The future of the wicked shall be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the Lord shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him.
- Lord, I will wait on You.
- When my impatience tries to drive me forward ahead of Your will, I will wait.
- I will keep Your ways and try in all I do to honor You.
- If I fail, help me to see my error and mend my ways.
- Lord, I want to be on the side that rises above the fray with You, not sitting below in the mourning place.
- I know that the wicked do not succeed forever. They may prosper for a time and spread their influence, but they will not live forever. Eventually, they will fail and be cut off.
- Lord, let people be able to see Your glory in my life. Let them recognize Your character and integrity in all that I do. Let my friends, family, and acquaintances see that I am full of peace and that I walk secure in You.
- I know that the evil will be destroyed. Those that transgress Your law will not stand, but will be destroyed.
- My salvation is from You, O LORD. You are my strength, my security.
- Help me, Lord, in all my days of uncertainty. Deliver me from evil and it effects. Save me, for I trust in You!
