"Trust in the Lord and do good;
    dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
    your vindication like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord
    and wait patiently for him..."


  1. What a great Psalm! I needed this today and it is truly awesome how God puts these passages in front of us to hold our thoughts and to keep us patient.

  2. The term "safe pasture" jumped out at me. If you have herd or flock animals you know that having a safe pasture is important. Not only do you have to watch out for " wolves" or coyotes in our case but also sink holes, poisiousness plants , fences that need fixed, etc. God does all that for us on a daily basis and we dont even acknowledge or realize it. Having a safe pasture for us to dwell in is so important. Praise God for His love and care.

  3. I'm a person who loves the challenge of studying the Bible, so am loving this devotion. thanks to all who comment as your comments have been very encouraging to me.

  4. What an amazing Psalm to study... thank you! It is truly amazing how our Lord knows what we need and when we need it. He is in control of our lives and and I am grateful for that.

  7. “Toughness” is the attribute or strength that allows you to face obstacles both physically and mentally, “toughness” is our armor.
