Good morning! This week I do not have a specific book of the Bible to review but I want to spend time pondering over the words in Psalm 25. Each line in those verses are rich with the truth of who the Lord is. Join me today as we review verses one through four.
Bible verse – Psalm 25:1-3 NIV
“In you, Lord my God,
I put my trust.
2 I trust in you;
do not let me be put to shame,
nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3 No one who hopes in you
will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
who are treacherous without cause.”
King David wrote this Psalm to the Lord many years ago. King David was annointed king before he defeated Goliath and when he was a young sheep shepherd. Before David became king he encountered many problems and even as king things were not always great. However, king David spent a lot of time writing psalms – prayers or outcries to the Lord.
King David began this psalm with:
In you, Lord my God, I put my trust.
That verse alone is worth repeating all week long, if not for the rest of our lives. King David states in the very next breath or line:
I trust in you
Sister and brothers, I do not know what is going on in your lives today, but I want to remind you that the Lord our God is faithful and trustworthy. He is without flaw and He loves you. He chose you and you can trust Him with anything that you are facing.
Questions to ponder:
- Is it difficult to trust the Lord in a certain area of your life? (e.g., finances, job, relationships, etc.)
- What do you want to trust the Lord with, but still question if He will come through?
- Will you make an effort to trust Him this week?
Put these verses on repeat this week:
In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. I trust in you.Psalm 25:1-2a
Sisters and brothers, where will you put your trust?
Father God thank you for all that you do on our behalf. Thank you for fighting battles we are aware of and for those we are not aware of. Thank you for showing yourself faithful in our lives. Thank you for the moments and periods of time where you call us to be humble or humble us. Thank you for the moments of clarity, discernment and wisdom that you give to us. Thank you for stretching and maturing us in our faith and our trust in you. Lord, we want to live our lives without incident or pain, but we know that that is not always the way life goes. Lord, regardless of what occurs in our lives in the good and bad we want to trust you. Lord, help us not to run around as if the sky is falling; help us to turn our fears and anxiety over to you. Help us to look to you first. Help us to seek you and move forward with the leading of the Holy Spirit. Lord, we know you can open doors and provide unexpected opportunities. Lord, we know you can heal the brokenhearted and restore our souls. Lord, we believe you can touch the ill and make them whole. Lord, you can provide shelter to those who need your protection and to those without a place to call home. Lord, today as we trust you we also trust that you will care for all who are in need of a touch from you today (e.g., emotionally, physically, financially, mentally and spiritually). Lord, we put our trust in You. In Jesus name, amen.
