It’s my No Fret chapter. GOD tells me (and you) to Fret Not. And there is much these days to Not Fret about.
Also in the Psalm, I found the words (verse 10): “yet a little while“. If you are like me, you have surely heard or said: “little while, my foot, it’s been years!” And it was then I was reminded and gratefully so! 2 Peter 3:8.
But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8 NKJV source
So Fret Not that folks are still lying; that folks are still plotting and carrying out unspeakable evil. GOD knows. In the scheme of it all, it has only been a couple of days.
He has not looked away.
He has not forgotten.
He has not winked.
2 Peter 3:8-9 (NKJV) 8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. source
As Psalm 37 tells us: 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 brings wicked schemes to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret—it only causes harm.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. source
And one more counsel from Psalm 37 (verse 3 and verse 27) for this post.
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. source
So, that is His counsel to me today.
Fret Not about ______________ and what she/he is doing; the lies they are telling. It won’t be long as HE counts long (and His timing is NEVER wrong). For now, you (that would be me) TRUST ME (that would be HIM) and DO GOOD. Dwell where you are and feed on MY Faithfulness . . . not that other stuff.
And how do I do good?
Verse 27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell forevermore. source
Let’s see depart from evil.
Take no part in it.
Pray against it.
Stand against it but love the people who are doing it.
Pray earnestly for them and wait for GOD, and take action as He provides.
Dwell. Abide. Occupy.
Till I (that would be HIM) come.
Abba, I offer this post for You to do with as You will; for You to bring those who need it, and when they come please speak and love on them so they KNOW You and trust You. Amen and amen in Yeshua’s name.
