READ Psalm 25:1-14:
Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindness; for they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach in his way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy name’s sake, O Lord, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. What man is he that feareth the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. The “secret” of the Lord is with them the fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. (Concordance Bible)
Key Reference: 2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth…”
In this piece of scripture, we are able to understand that if we remain true to God, he will keep us “safe from our enemies”—even our greatest enemy. It is our job to recognize the enemy in disguise, for we must remember the power of-fallen angels-to confuse the human world. It is important to listen to the testimonies of Christ and to adhere to what he says. He, in all ways, is constantly trying to communicate with us. Do not let yourself be caught in a trap. Keep your eyes open and your wits about you in order to fight off any adver- sity that poses a threat. God will guide the meek and the humble in His ways. Losing arrogance is key to gaining understanding from God. Do away with the ways of your younger days and become a mature Christian who is spiritually fit.
Asking God for forgiveness relieves anxiety and stress, so use this simple piece of knowledge to alleviate worry. Even though God’s ways are of old, at the coming of Christ all of these ways will seem new. The way that the world has existed up until now has been for an extenuated period of time. Know that God brings new light to a dark world. His Son brings truth that may be hard to hear, but salvation for all of those who believe. Believe in him and the world will change. It takes faith to transform a dark world. This is what God demands. The secret of God is what we all shall seek. The writings of God may be kept secret for some time, but one day it will be evident to all that God fulfills His prophecy and that He is the author of perfection.
