Do Not Fret Wicked Schemes

Wolf Sheep

Psalm 37:7 “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.” Matthew 7:15-16a “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.” Mark 13:23 “So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.” I John 4:3a “But every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.”

In this world, wicked schemes will be successfully carried out. This is a fact. Deception is alive and well. Wolves engage us incognito more than we know. But, God gives believers a storehouse of ways to avoid fretting:

  • Be still before Him, unplug and listen for Him
  • Patiently endure
  • Recognize good fruit and bad fruit
  • His Word gives us all the intel we need
  • The name of Jesus is the most powerful test of the spirits
