“In you, Lord my God, I put my trust…”
Psalm 25, a Hebrew Acrostic poem written by David, challenges its readers to assess their trust and faith in the Lord while reminding them of the Lord’s unconditional love and mercy.
How often do we say, “I trust you Lord” and then proceed to worry and doubt, letting our emotions drive us away from God? How often do we say, “the Lord is my deliverer,” and then proceed in trying (and failing) to deliver ourselves from our circumstance? As we read Psalm 25, hearing the words of David and his prayer to the Lord, I encourage us to follow David’s lead. Pray to the Lord for wisdom to trust solely in Him, follow the path He has intended, seek forgiveness, and to put our hope in Him above all else. Instead of taking refuge from our struggles in the fleetingness of the world, let us take refuge in the good and gracious Lord.
