Reliance on the LORD—S3-DE2

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Psalm 25:1-5 (NIV) says: 

In you, LORD my God, I put my trust. I trust in you, do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.” 

“No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause.” 

“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 25:1-5 (NIV)

The oxygen of the believer is reliance upon the LORD. Our total trust in Him is vital to our survival and our walk with Christ.  Having faith in God’s guidance and total trust in HIS will keeps us on the right path in life. 

 So, how do we receive God’s guidance? It’s quite simple really—just ask! King David knew the value of praying to God and asking for what he needed. 

 And, as we peer into, Psalm 25, we find David praying for defense, guidance, and a pardon. David knew God to be faithful and the only ONE he could rely on. 

David’s hope in God was built over time and through many trials of life. Through it all, David believed God and found Him to be trustworthy. 

As believers in Jesus, we also should believe in the reliability of God’s faithfulness. As we receive guidance through reading the Word of God and the leading of God’s Holy Spirit—our path leads to victory. BELIEVE THAT!  

 When those trials in life arise, remember the words of David, NO ONE who puts their hope in God will be put to shame. 

And as we read throughout the Psalms, we are reminded that our help comes from the Lord. There’s no other help I know! 

Beloved, the favor of God rests on those that depend on Him. So, no matter what you are up against, rejoice in confident hope, be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.  

God’s faithfulness never expires! 

We will see Him do great and mighty things on our behalf, in the name of Jesus. So make your requests known to God in prayer. He’s listening! 

Let’s pray… 

Father God, we come to your throne of grace in the name of Jesus. We are confident that you hear our voices as we direct our prayers to you. We thank you that you rescue the godly and are our fortress in times of trouble. We thank you that you rescue us from the wicked and save us.  

We thank you that we find shelter in you; and, even when we are afraid, we can put our trust in you.  

And because of what you’ve promised in your word, that you did not give us the spirit of fear, but of POWER, and of LOVE and of a SOUND MIND, we don’t have to be afraid.  

We have power—YOU are with us! 

For your unfailing love for us is powerful; and your faithfulness endures forever. Praise the LORD!  

So as you are our strength and our help, we eagerly watch as we believe that we will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.  We can rely on YOU to help us, In Jesus’ Name and by HIS authority and HIS WORD—It is so! 

Amen, Amen, Amen.

Grace and Peace to You, and remember JESUS IS LORD!!!
