While facing the heavy issues of life we must trust in God. We must pray in times of trial, praise in periods of confidence, and petition for help in trouble. For none who wait for the LORD are put to shame (Psalm 25:3).
Like King David, let this be our petition. Make me know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long (v4-5). Oh, how good and upright is He. Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way (v. 8-9).
LORD, I come to you with a humble and contrite heart. Consider my affliction and my troubles and forgive all my sins. Oh, guard my soul, and deliver me. Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. My eyes are ever toward You for you will pluck my feet out of the snares of this life. Teach me your ways and lead me in the path of righteousness. How my soul seeks for you. I give you praise and worship. I lay my life down at your feet. You alone are worthy of praise. To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul. It is in Jesus precious name I pray, amen.
