Show Me Your Ways, Lord

Psalm 25:4-5

Show me your ways, Lord,
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.

Psalm 25:4-5 NIV

This psalm of David is a prayer for God’s presence and leading. It is the cry of a heart that yearns to know more and more of God. A heart that wants to know and follow his truth. A heart whose hope was not in power or strength of arms, but in God.

For David, God was not just an impersonal national deity. He was David’s personal Savior, one who had protected him and delivered him through numerous conflicts and battles. And he expected him to continue to save him; his hope was always in God. So it was natural for David to want to know and follow God.

But this prayer of David’s should be the prayer of all believers. God is our savior, and our hope is in him. He will deliver us from all the attacks of the evil one, and safely bring us into his kingdom. So, like David, let’s seek to follow the Lord’s ways rather than the ways of the world. Let’s seek after his truth rather than the so-called truth of this world. Let’s put our trust in God alone.

Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths.
