Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:3-5 (NKJV)
I think the most important thing to draw from this passage is that it includes every situation. Some days we are all on top of the world and some days we are very low. Whether it be financial stress or relational problems there is an importance wherever you are in life.
The very first text says “Trust in the Lord and do good”. This is key. Above all else God must be trusted. We can not always see the end result of every situation. You have to trust, through the pain or the pleasure, God is using each segment of life as a teachable moment.
I know right now many of the readers of this blog are experiencing some sort of financial stress. God is saying to you that all you have to do is trust Him and He will give you the desires of your heart. This is key though. The desires of your heart are not always pure. So we sit around and wait for our own selfish desires. If you are calling on God to change your situation and nothing is happening you need to reexamine your heart. God will answer prayer in His time and for His glory.
