To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You; Let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. Psalm 25:1-2 NKJV
David brings everything before the Lord. He prays for deliverance from his enemies, forgiveness for his sins and help during affliction. David is confident Almighty God will answer his prayer.
David was not afraid to bring his heart and soul before the Lord. He held nothing back from his God. His trust in the Lord was strong and true.
David was surrounded by enemies. Some of them were members of his family. Others were the enemies of his people. David had nothing to fear from any of them. God was with him!
David’s sinful nature was the only enemy capable of shaming him. It happened more than once.
When I present myself before the Lord I try not to hold anything back. I confess my sins failures and mistakes. I confess my weakness and lack of faith. I also ask God not to leave me to myself. I trust Him that much!
The Lord said He would give me what I need when I need it. It is a promise I hang on to during the darkest seasons of life. The God of my faith has been faithful to keep His promise.
God did not just promise to give me material things when I need them. It is not just a promise to give me faith wisdom and guidance when I need it.
It is a promise to bring correction and discipline into my life when I need it. It is a promise to bring hardship and trial into my life when they are needed. It is a promise never to leave me to myself. Jesus is with me today!
My poor choices and sinful actions are the only things that can shame me. I have nothing to fear from anyone who seeks to harm me!
Lift up your soul to Jesus. Trust Jesus with your life!
Ask the Lord not to leave you to yourself. Poor choices and sinful actions are the only things that shame you. You have nothing to fear from anyone who wants to harm you. Jesus is with you today!
Ask the Lord to show you His ways. Ask Him to teach you where to go and what to do. Jesus is the God of salvation. No one who waits on the Lord will ever be put to shame!
Jesus promised never to leave you. Jesus will keep His promise!
