I found another great verb in Psalm 37: fret. Three times in this psalm, we’re told to “fret not” or “do not fret.” I learn that to fret means to burn inside like fire. It suggests becoming angry, vexed, and kindled.
I love the command do not fret. David tells us we don’t need to worry about anything as we trust in the Lord. We can “enjoy great peace” (verse 11). The Lord helps us and delivers us from anything and everything that tempts us to fret as we take refuge in Him (verse 40).
