Encouraging christian to be righteous


In these troubling times the Lord is still in control and we are called on to simply not fret, trust, take delight, commit, be still, turn from evil, do good and always hope.

How does God reveal himself in this passage would you say?


@Perusamus Maximus - I'd say the main message of the psalm is that we live wiser and less anxious lives if we trust God. So God is revealed as trustworthy, as caring for us, as calling us to live holy lives, as being above all human schemes and power.

But there's always so much in Scripture, so you might come up with other things.
