How Psalm 37 Guides Your Life Path

By: Sarah Geringer

Are you struggling to know what to do with your life path?

I'm the kind of person who likes to have answers, and I want them now, please.

But God's timing and guidance doesn't work like that. He wants us to trust Him to reveal our life's path one day at a time. We can find guidance for our life path in God's Word.

Psalm 37 is one of my favorite scriptures for learning about the path God wants me to walk. 

Today I want to share some curated verses from Psalm 37 to encourage you on your path. I've reworded a few of them for clarity in this sample. Read these slowly, listening for the guidance God is speaking to your heart. Meditate on how they apply to your life path.

Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him, and he will help you.

Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for him to act.

The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord.
He delights in every detail of their lives.

Though they stumble, they will not fall,
for the Lord holds them by the hand.

The Lord loves justice,
and he will never abandon the godly.
He will keep them safe forever.

The godly fill their hearts with God's law,
so they will never slip from his path.

Travel steadily along his path.
He will honor you and give you an inheritance.

A wonderful future lies before those who love peace.

The Lord saves the godly;
he is their fortress in times of trouble.

The Lord helps them, rescuing them from the wicked.
He saves them, and they find shelter in him.

How do these verses encourage you? They encourage me to trust God more. I don't have to know all the answers because he is keeping me safe and protecting me. He will be my source of strength as I move forward. He will help me know which steps to take, and he will help you too!

  1. "Be still in the presence of the Lord,
    and wait patiently for him to act."

    This is my favorite and the one I have the most trouble with. These verses encourage me to slow down and listen for the small, still voice of God. Thanks for sharing!
