Psalm 37:1-7 (NKJV)
Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.
Trust in the LORD, and do good;
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.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.
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 brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret-it only causes harm.
Let me now give you the CliffsNotes version:
Be happy in God.
Commit to him.
Rest in the Lord.
Don't get all worked up.
It comes right back to don't fret - don't worry. Just let God have today.
Let him be in control. Give yourself to him and rest knowing he is in control.
