Daily Bible Reading: Day 240
Make me to know your ways, O Lord;
teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all the day long. -Psalm 25:4-5
Seems fitting that I should read these words from the Psalms this morning. Yesterday I wrote about all of the things that Peter said we should be adding to our faith if we are to be fruitful and effective (yesterday's post) How fitting to be reminded today that this is a work of God. How wonderful that God is my teacher and I do not have to rely upon myself. Notice the verbs in this passage: make, teach, lead. Whose actions are these? The Lord's. Notice the verb for the psalmist here...wait.
As I continue to read Psalm 25 there is much it reveals to me about the character of God and my role in our relationship. I am particularly struck by verse 10; "for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies." The world would like to believe that God's love and blessings are for everyone no matter what they believe about God. It makes my heart sad for those who continue to walk in their own way rather than follow the Lord in the path he has laid. It gives an urgency to my need to share the Gospel.
Grace, Peace, and Mercy,
“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.” -C.S. Lewis
