Reading Plan: Psalms 25, 29, 33, 36, 39
Psalm 25:4-5 (NASB)
4 Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.
5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.
Psalm 25 is an admirable prayer; it is a genuine plea for the guidance of the Lord. God cares and desires to lead us. He will light our path and direct our every step.
Psalm 25:8-10 (NASB)
8 Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way.
9 He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.
10 All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
By His Grace, God will even instruct sinners in the way they should go. This should bring comfort because we are all sinners. When we do sin, God wants us to run to Him and not from Him. As we humble ourselves, God does not cast us aside but rather teaches us. Regardless of our iniquities, His instruction is still ours.
Psalm 25:12 (NASB)
12 Who is the man who fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way he should choose.
Take time to meditate on this verse. The Lord will instruct us in the way we should choose. This is why we should seek God’s council regarding every decision we need to make (e.g.where to live, what job to take, if we should move, who we should marry, etc.) I believe we should ask God whether we turn to the right or to the left. As I have done this, I have found God to be faithful. The Lord does instruct us in the way we should choose.
