Behold, I stand at the door, and knock if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Jesus Christ. John 1:17
Delight thyself also in the Lord
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Psalms 37:1 – 37:40

  1 [A Psalm] of David. Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
  2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
  3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
  4 Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
  5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass.
  6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
  7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
  8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
  9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
  10 For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it [shall] not [be].
  11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
  12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
  13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
  14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, [and] to slay such as be of upright conversation.
  15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
  16 A little that a righteous man hath [is] better than the riches of many wicked.
  17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.
  18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
  19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
  20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord [shall be] as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
  21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
  22 For [such as be] blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and [they that be] cursed of him shall be cut off.
  23 The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
  24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth [him with] his hand.
  25 I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
  26 [He is] ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed [is] blessed.
  27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
  28 For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
  29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
  30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
  31 The law of his God [is] in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
  32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
  33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
  34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see [it].
  35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
  36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he [was] not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
  37 Mark the perfect [man], and behold the upright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace.
  38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
  39 But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the Lord: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble.
  40 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
We Believe…

In one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;

In the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death for all through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead;

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;

In the divine inspiration of all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, guaranteeing their infallibility, entire trustworthiness, and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

That all people are sinners and cannot save themselves. Salvation is received as a free gift of God’s grace, apart from works, through repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of Christ and the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit;

In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost;

In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are thus members of His Body, the Church, whose work is the worship of God, perfecting the saints, and evangelization of the world.
