Psalm 37:7 – Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
– Psalm 37:7 (NIV)
Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Author of Making Sense of the Bible
Our culture is not known for being still. We do not wait very well. Yet these traits are necessary if we expect to walk in the ways of God. Waiting is not a call to inactivity, but trust. When we wait and watch we gain perspective on what it means to prosper and succeed; we learn how to plan in ways that benefit others. Being still and waiting actually is the prelude to action, but these actions will have greater significance than anything that hasty plans can produce.
