Many have memorized the 23rd Psalm, but have you ever noticed the prayer of David in the 25th Psalm?
“To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You, Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. Show me Your ways, O lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. Remember, O Lord, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindness, for they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me” (Psalm 25:1-7).
David poured out his heart to God. Surely this was a man who loved and trusted the Lord! He was a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22). David provides us an example of a powerful king who realized how much He needed God’s mercy. So do you and I. May we ever pour out our hearts to God and trust in Him.
