Psalms Meditation – July 7

“Make Me to Know Thy Ways, O Lord”

Read Psalm 25:1-5

Trial and error is a poor strategy for learning how to live. The way of faith is illuminated with precedents and examples (“thy ways, O Lord”) that can save us both the embarrassment of being foolish and the pain of making mistakes.

PRAYER: O God, even as Abraham “went out, not knowing where he was to go” and arrived at the land of promise by your guidance, so I would make my way believing in your promises and guided by your commandments, looking to Jesus, the “pioneer and perfecter” of my faith. Amen.

(Hebrews 11:8; 12:2)

    What a coincidence, these guys in Seattle are starting a series on Psalms this week too! (They must have also been studying with Beth Moore this summer.) http://voxpopnetwork.com/doxologist/2008/07/07/psalms-seeking-gods-glory-from-lament-to-praise/
