Psalm 37:18 “The days of the blameless are known to the LORD,and their inheritance will endure forever.“
The Lord had promised Abraham to give Cannan as inheritance. People had gone into slavery, Moses brought them out and promise was fulfilled through Joshua. And in this psalm David is explaining who will receive the inheritance. Are we also waiting for the fulfilment of a promise?
Is your vision yet to come true? Your call, desires still not fulfilled? Is there someone’s salvation you are waiting taking too long? Is a healing delayed? Are you worried about a confirmation? Are you waiting for a permanent place to settle down? Had been waiting for a life partner too long? Waiting for a job? Looking out for higher studies? Or anything else; that you are yet to see the fulfilment.
Trust and Obey: Psalm 37:3 “Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.” First step to receive your promise is trust the Lord to fulfil what the Lord spoke to you. There is no place for fear or worry when we trust the Lord completely.
Hope: Psalm 37:9 “those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.”. Just blindly hope in God who never disappoints His children who put their hope in Him. Remember Abraham hoped against hope (I believe Abraham had to hope what his mind could not understand even)
Be Meek: Psalm 37:11 “The meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace” To be meek is to be willing for the Lord to teach. Are we having a listening ear to the voice of the Almighty?
Be Blessed: Psalm 37:22 “those the LORD blesses will inherit the land,” Lord blessed all those who are His children. Those who receive Jesus as their personal savoir and accept Him as the Lord of their life, they are the children of God. Be obedient children.
Stop Sinning: Psalm 37:27 “Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever” Stop continuing to live in sin. Run from youthful lust. Tell No to sin. Fear of God is to hate evil.
Live Righteous: Psalm 37:29 “the righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever“. Walk in the ways of the Lord. Every step taken will be as per the direction from almighty.
Wait and Keep: Psalm 37:34 “Wait for the LORD and keep his way. He will exalt you to inherit the land” Be prepared for the second coming of Jesus. Wait to be taken to God and His kingdom established. Paul said for me to live is Christ.
