Meditations in the Psalms

March 19th

Psalm 37:34-40

It is good once in awhile to sit back and list the blessings of the righteous and the judgment coming upon the wicked. Never think that it is better or more rewarding to walk in the way of the ungodly – to think, speak, and act as our secular culture portrays. God’s blessings are upon the righteous; He promises to be our strength “in the time of trouble (v. 39).”

  1. Our dependence upon the Lord will be rewarded – verse 34
  2. The destiny of the righteous and the wicked – verses 35-38
  3. The deliverance which the Lord promises the righteous – verses 39-40

What a wonderful phrase for our meditation – “the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD!” He is our strength, our salvation, and our supply – all promised as verse 40 says “because they trust in Him.”

Verse for Meditation

Verse 39 – “But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: He is their strength in the time of trouble.”

Meditation Prayer

“No matter what trouble is in my life, You are the One, Lord, Who rescues me, and gives me strength to go on.”
