Fret not thyself

Fret means to be worried or anxious. Unfortunately many of us find ourselves in fretful situations. I too admit being over anxious at times. I was encouraged in and after prayer on Sunday reading Psalms chapter 37. The entire chapter is worth the reading, but I have posted just a portion of it in this post.

Psalm 37:1-5
1     Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2    For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3    Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4    Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5    Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

No matter the situation, don’t fret. God has everything under control.

That’s the way He does; just about the time it gets the very darkest of hour, then Jesus comes along. We fret and worry, we Christians. And the baby gets sick, or something happens, or somebody don’t show up, we’re just so nervous and upset. We should just set quiet. He’s the One Who commanded it. We’re living under His dispensation, living under His grace. Just set still. He’ll be along after while. Don’t worry. He’ll open up a healing service somewhere, or you’d be guided to somebody who prays for the sick when you got sickness. If not, He’ll just put it upon your heart so bad, you’ll just kneel down in the room and ask Him about it yourself. That’s right. So just remember, He works all things together for good.
