There are days I love to read the Psalms as they show us how to process and understand our own experiences and emotional ups and downs. Yesterday’s reading included Psalm 23, which is famous for a reason. The imagery of the care of the Lord and the complete contentment, “shalom,” that results is beautiful. In Psalm 25, below, we find a prayer of earnest desire that comes from seeing the grandness of the Lord. The reason for the desire is because the Psalmist knows the Lord is the giver of his salvation. The longing the Psalmist expresses for God’s ways is where our hearts will be when we see the Lord as our savior. May this be our prayer every morning.
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. (Ps 25:4-5)
