Do you find peace in your heart whenever you realise that God is your refuge and He will never fail the promises he has made concerning your entire life?
My good friend, join me let’s all study Psalm 25 together. A Psalm of David that inspires us and reminds us that God is our only hope and He will always forgive us and love us as He has promised.
1. TRUST AND HOPE IN GOD.
In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. Psalm 25:1-3 NIV
In the first three verses of Psalm 25 David declared God as His hope, his trust and refuge.
Who or what have you made your hope? Do you have your only hope in your family or friends or in God? My friend I am encouraging you as you read this that Trust in God, make God your hope, God will never let you down no matter the circumstance. As David, lets declare God as our hope and trust Him with all our hearts.
2. SHOW ME YOUR WAYS LORD & TEACH ME.
Show me your ways, Lord , teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. -Psalm 25:4-5 NIV
There is nothing joyful in life than discovering God’s will for your life and living by His will. Have you ever thought of that? David asked God to teach him His ways and guide him. When we feel lost in life this is the right prayer for us. Teach me your ways Lord and guide me. Discovering God’s ways can fill our lives with peace and blessings.
3. GOD IS GOOD, MERCIFUL & FORGIVING.
Remember, Lord , your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, Lord , are good. Good and upright is the Lord ; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant. For the sake of your name, Lord , forgive my iniquity, though it is great. Psalm 25:6-11 NIV
God is good, merciful and forgiving. No matter your sinful life He is ready to forgive you and restore you. Pray as David did. God is ready to teach you His ways and love you as He always does. God promises to forgive us whenever we seek Him and plead for forgiveness. As you study this verse ask God to forgive your sins and rebellious ways, ask God to teach you His ways and guide you through your journey in this world.
4. GOD WILL INSTRUCT YOU IN HIS WAYS.
Who, then, are those who fear the Lord ? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose. They will spend their days in prosperity, and their descendants will inherit the land. The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.
Psalm 25:12-14 NIV
Whenever it comes to making choices in life, do you consult God? Do you seek God’s help and guidance in order to make right choices in your life? My friend, make God your closest friend, begin your day with Him and live your entire life for Him. God is ready to guide you so you make good choices in your life, God wants to make His home in you, are you ready?
5. GOD WILL RELIEVE THE TROUBLES OF YOUR HEART.
My eyes are ever on the Lord , for only he will release my feet from the snare. Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Look on my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins. -Psalm 25:15-18 NIV
If you have your heart filled with troubles and sorrows, have hope and trust God to relieve the troubles of your heart. I love to sing praises to God and read Psalms whenever I feel disturbed in heart. God is the source of happiness. The Bible says the Joy of the Lord is our strength; so trust God and be joyful in hope.
6. GOD IS YOUR REFUGE.
See how numerous are my enemies and how fiercely they hate me! Guard my life and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord , is in you. Deliver Israel, O God, from all their troubles! -Psalm 25:19-22 NIV
If God is for us nothing can come against us. God is your source of protection. Do not focus on the devil’s attack against you, focus on your strength in God. God will give you complete victory over the devil.
I pray your days are blessed as you continue to trust and live for God. Will be glad to hear from you.
