Sunday Sermon Outline: When Wrong Seems Strong

“When Wrong Seems Strong”

Psalm 37:1-7


Introduction:

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21).


Psalm 37:1-7, “Do not fret because of evildoers, be not envious toward wrongdoers. 2 For they will wither quickly like the grass and fade like the green herb. 3 Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it. 6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday. 7 Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.”

Psalm 73:2-3, “But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. 3 For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”


I. Trust in the Lord vs. 1-3

“Do not fret because of evildoers, be not envious toward wrongdoers. 2 For they will wither quickly like the grass and fade like the green herb. 3 Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.”

Ezekiel 34:31, “You [are] My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, … and I am your God.”

John 10:9,14, “I am the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. … I am the good Shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me.”

Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”


II. Commit Your Ways to the Lord vs. 4-6

“4 Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it. 6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday.” 

Acts 13:22, “a man after My heart, who will do all My will.”


III. Wait on the Lord v. 7

7 Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.”

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

“The Lord … is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).


Conclusion:

“what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul” (Mark 8:36)?

“Do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:31-33).

Matthew 11:30, “My yoke is easy, and My load is light.”
