We are all sinners, saved by grace. Romans 3:23 tells us that all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. David was no exception. In Psalm 25, David reminds us that while we do sin, we do not have to make sin our lifestyle. We can seek God and follow Him. we can also remember that while following the Lord, even when we sin, we simply confess our sin and seek His forgiveness.
If we will choose God as the lead and seek to follow Him each day, then the Father will forgive our sin and protect, prepare, and provide for our needs. David does not promise a life of ease, instead, David speaks specifically to facing trials and consequences, and then David seeks God’s forgiveness and leadership.
David also reminds us that if we will follow the Lord and place our lives in His care, God will give us a full and meaningful life on earth, and eternity with Him in Heaven. Jesus also reminds us of that same promise in Matthew 6:33 and in John 10:10. It is the promise and hope that if we will seek God and HIs kingdom, then He will provide all we need to have a great life.
Help me Lord to follow Your lead.
God Bless you
For the sake of your name, Lord,
forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.[b]
13 They will spend their days in prosperity,
and their descendants will inherit the land.
14 The Lord confides in those who fear him;
he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are ever on the Lord,
for only he will release my feet from the snare.
16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 Relieve the troubles of my heart
and free me from my anguish.
18 Look on my affliction and my distress
and take away all my sins.
19 See how numerous are my enemies
and how fiercely they hate me!
20 Guard my life and rescue me;
do not let me be put to shame,
for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness protect me,
because my hope, Lord,[c] is in you.
22 Deliver Israel, O God,
from all their troubles!
