I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

Fret Not Nor Be Envious Of Others

Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
How much time do we spend worrying about others or being envious of something other people may have in a day? These things are not worth taking our mind away from what really matters, the love of God. Put all things before God through Jesus Christ and then just accept that His will be done. Gods' will may not always be what we would like to have happen but believe me when I say that ALL things work for the glory of Gods' kingdom. We must not lean on our own understanding because that is of the flesh and not the spirit, unless God gives you the understanding of what is happening. God will do what He will do in order to bring His chosen to Him. Now think about that. I cannot say what God will do but I will say that if it even means for Him to take a loved one away in order for someone to come to Him, if it is Gods' will, it will be done. That seems very extreme to most but we are talking about ones salvation for eternity here and Gods will will be done and no one can stop that. God is a just, merciful, and loving God. He wants what is best for His children just as we who have children want the best for them also. We need to get back to worshiping God in heart, mind and spirit with all our strength and quit wasting our time on envy and fret over others. This is the work of the devil to take time away from us worshipping our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. If someone is always worrying about what someone else is doing or saying to or about others or what they have, this can consume them just as hate can do. I hope and pray that you can see what I am trying to get across here because this is very important. God wants our time spent on Him not on others. God will take care of it, period. Pray to God in the name of His Son Jesus Christ and He will here you. Cast all you burdens on Him. Philippians 4:4-7 "Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. 5: Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
Give Praise To The Lord Our God.

Psalms 37:1-40
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.
6: And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7: Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8: Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9: For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10: For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11: But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12: The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13: The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
14: The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15: Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16: A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17: For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
18: The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
19: They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20: But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
21: The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
22: For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
23: The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
24: Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
25: I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26: He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
27: Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28: For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29: The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
30: The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
31: The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32: The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33: The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34: Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
35: I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36: Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37: Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
38: But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39: But the salvation of the righteous is of 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.
