Read Psalm 25:1-10


Read Psalm 25:1-10

To you, O Lord, I offer my prayer;
2           in you, my God, I trust.
Save me from the shame of defeat;
don’t let my enemies gloat over me!
3     Defeat does not come to those who trust in you,
but to those who are quick to rebel against you.
4     Teach me your ways, O Lord;
make them known to me.
5     Teach me to live according to your truth,
for you are my God, who saves me.
I always trust in you.
6     Remember, O Lord, your kindness and constant love
which you have shown from long ago.
7     Forgive the sins and errors of my youth.
In your constant love and goodness, remember me, Lord!
8     Because the Lord is righteous and good,
he teaches sinners the path they should follow.
9     He leads the humble in the right way
and teaches them his will.
10   With faithfulness and love he leads
all who keep his covenant and obey his commands.

Think

"To you O Lord, I lift up my soul.  In you a put my trust" Vs 1&2

Pray

I love the image the Psalmist offers - lifting up your soul to the Lord.  Everything about us - our frailties, strengths, sins, goodness - we hold it up to God and trust him with it.
Spend some time 'lifting' your soul to the Lord.
