Week 1: Fighting Worry About the Wicked 

  1. Read Psalm 37:1-5.
  2. David advises us not to fret about the wicked but to trust in the Lord and do good. How do you personally struggle with worry or envy when you see wrongdoing or apparent success among those who don’t follow God’s ways? What can you do to shift your focus from worry to trust in such situations?
  3. Our actions and attitudes can impact our desires and our world. How can we practically “do good” in our daily lives and “dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture” as described in Psalm 37:3? Share an example of how you’ve seen your actions influence your perspective or circumstances.
  4. Proverbs 16:9 tells us that while we make plans, God determines our steps. Reflect on your own journey with God. Can you think of a time when God led you in unexpected ways or through challenging circumstances? How did your perspective on God’s plan change as a result, and how can you apply this lesson to your future “next steps” in your walk with Him?


Week 2: Fighting Worry About Waiting

  1. Read Psalm 37:6-10.
  2.

  4. The passage promises that the wicked will eventually be no more, and those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land. Reflect on the idea that regardless of our present circumstances, good is ahead. How can this perspective on hope and patience influence the way you navigate challenging situations or interact with people who may appear as enemies or opponents in your life?

  4. The passage speaks about God laughing at the wicked because He sees the long view. How can adopting an eternal perspective influence the way we respond to challenges and interact with those who may oppose us or act wickedly?
