Hope for Today - The Bible teaching ministry of David Hocking

Meditations in the Psalms

February 18th

Psalm 25:14-22

David does not hesitate to pour out his heart to the Lord and express his concerns over his troubles and the attacks of his enemies. He knew personally the absolute imperative of trusting the Lord with all his heart. In verse 20 he says, “for I put my trust in Thee.” That is the heart of the problem for all of us – trusting in the Lord with ALL of our hearts!

  1. His awareness of keeping his heart and eyes on the Lord – verse 14-15
  2. His afflictions led him to cry out to God – verses 16-18
  3. The attacks he experienced needed the Lord’s deliverance and protection – verses 19-21
  4. His appeal to God for Israel – verse 22

Difficulties and pressures will eventually come to us all. When we try to handle things apart from the Lord, we become burdened, depressed, defeated, and disillusioned. The simple words of verse 21 are what we need – “for I wait on Thee.”

Verse for Meditation

Verse 14 – “The secret of the LORD is with them that fear Him; and He will shew them His covenant.”
