The Desires of your Heart

Psalm 37 v 1-9

1 Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong;

2 for like the grass they will soon wither,

like the green plants they will soon die away.

3 Trust in the Lord and do good;

dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

4 Delight yourself in the Lord and do good;

and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the Lord;

trust in him and he will do this:

6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,

the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;

do not fret when men succeed in their ways,

when they carry out their wicked schemes.

8 Refrain from anger and turn away from wrath;

do not fret - it leads only to evil.

9 For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
