Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. (Psalm 37:3 ESV)
Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed. (Psalm 37:3 AMP)
As I read the two versions of this verse, I was reminded that I have to accept His faithfulness, His goodness. I have to make it my nourishment and my friend. How often do I deny His faithfulness and deny my own soul food?
And it seems that this verse gives me the way to His faithfulness – His food for my soul. It is received by trusting Him and doing His commands. All through the Bible, these two simple instructions are given as the path to a righteous life, a life of peace.
How I desire to walk a path where His faithfulness is my nourishment and my friend!
