“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. For the honor of your name, O Lord, forgive my many, many sins. Who are those who fear the Lord? He will show them the path they should choose. They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land. The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies. Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress. My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all! Feel my pain and see my trouble. Forgive all my sins. See how many enemies I have and how viciously they hate me! Protect me! Rescue my life from them! Do not let me be disgraced, for in you I take refuge. May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in you. O God, ransom Israel from all its troubles.”
Nothing to say today that could bring you any more truth or Gold than what God brings here through David. I pray that this Word can bring you some peace today knowing that we serve such a GOOD God, such a loving and faithful God. It blows my mind to think He could love someone like me, maybe you think the same thing at times, but it’s the truth. God loves you exactly where you’re at, no matter what you do or no matter how far you stray from His truth. Enjoy these verses and send up some love back to the One who never ceases or fails to love us! Dig into what David is saying here and all the many ways He describes the Lord, it helped my view of Him and showed me His heart on levels I’ve never imagined, I pray He will open you up to the same truths. Have a great Tuesday!!
