Ever lose focus?  It's easy to do, ins't it? 

Sometimes when we go into a trial we lose focus.  It is so easy to put our eyes on our circumstances instead of our beautiful, loving LORD.

What are some things that cause us to lose focus?
 _______, _______, _______.  You fill in the blanks.

Psalm 37:1-11 lays out exactly what to do while God handles "them".

  • Do not fret -- Be not envious (God is going to handle "them")
  • Trust -- Do good
  • Delight -- He will
  • Commit
  • He Will
  • Rest -- Wait -- Do not fret
  • Cease  -- Forsake wrath -- Do not fret
  • Wait -- You will inherit
  • God will handle "them"
  • Will inherit -- Will have abundant prosperity

Psalm 37 (New American Standard Bible)

Psalm 37:1-11

1 Do not fret because of evildoers,

Be not envious toward wrongdoers.

2For they will wither quickly like the grass

And fade like the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD and do good;

Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.

4 Delight yourself in the LORD;

And He will give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the LORD,

Trust also in Him, and He will do it.

6He will bring forth your righteousness as the light

And your judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him;

Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,

Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.

8Cease from anger and forsake wrath;

Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.

9For evildoers will be cut off,

But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land.

10Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;

And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.

11But the humble will inherit the land

And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.
