The purpose of Psalm 37 is to exhort and encourage
God's faithful servants concerning the prosperity of
the wicked, which certainly appears at first to be an
unfair and unrighteous reality of this life. Indeed,
it can be a great frustration unto the hearts of the
faithful to see â€śthe wicked in great power, and
spreading himself like a green bay tree.â€ť (Psalm
37:35) In fact, if we dwell on this frustration, it
can easily and quickly turn us back from our walk
with the Lord and lead us down into the pit of sinful
iniquity. (See Psalm 73:2-3) So then, how does Psalm
37 exhort us and encourage us concerning this matter?
Over all, the psalm presents a prohibition
concerning our attitude at the prosperity of the
wicked, a proclamation concerning the judgment of the
Lord against the wicked, precept concerning our walk
with the Lord, promise concerning the favor of the
Lord upon the righteous, the practice of the wicked
and of the righteous, and the principle concerning
righteousness as the better way. In this message,
let us focus our attention upon the precepts
concerning our walk with the Lord.
