In our passage today, King David is singing a song to the Lord thanking God for helping him conquer the enemies of his soul; asking the Lord to guide him onto the righteous path. If we are going to join Jesus on the righteous path, we are going to need to confess that sometimes we need a change in direction. In fact, Scripture teaches there is a way that seems right, but it ends in destruction (Prov. 14:12). So, it is best not to lean on our own understanding, but acknowledge the Lord in all things and look for his guidance to get us on the path of righteousness.
Do you consider yourself a teachable person? Are you someone who welcomes new ideas, new experiences, and new thoughts? If so, you will enjoy your journey with Jesus. He is all about teaching us what it means to live in Christ…live in the Anointed One. There is no other experience or journey like it. Have a blessed weekend…
Psalm 25 A psalm of David.
O Lord, I give my life to you.
I trust in you, my God!
Do not let me be disgraced,
or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.
No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced,
but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.
Show me the right path, O Lord;
point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
for you are the God who saves me.
All day long I put my hope in you.
Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love,
which you have shown from long ages past.
Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth.
Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
for you are merciful, O Lord.
The Lord is good and does what is right;
he shows the proper path to those who go astray.
He leads the humble in doing right,
teaching them his way.
The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness
all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your unfailing love that keeps me going each day in the right direction. Sometimes I have needed to pause and refocus on you and your will. You are always patient with me; always righteous and faithful. In Jesus’ name.
