New start

Psalm 25

“Oh Lord I give my life to you”

That is how Psalm 25 starts. That is the very best way to start a psalm or a day or a new chapter in life. I have a friend who recently said something like that. He gave his life to Jesus. He became a follower of Jesus.

Psalm 25 seems to be a good place for a new believer to read and study. 3 times in the psalm the writer requests forgiveness.

“Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love, which you have shown from long ages past. Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth. Remember me in the light of your unfailing love, for you are merciful, O Lord. For the honor of your name, O Lord, forgive my many, many sins. Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress. My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all! Feel my pain and see my trouble. Forgive all my sins.”

Psalm 25:6-7,11,16-18 -NLT

God wants to lead us and teach us how to live our best possible life.

“The Lord is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way. The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.”

Psalm 25:8-10 – NLT

God wants the best for us. He offers us forgiveness, blessings, relationship and protection.

“Who are those who fear the Lord? He will show them the path they should choose. They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land. The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.”

Psalm 25:12-15 – NLT

I will suggest reading and ingesting this psalm to my friend who is now a new member of my God family.

How about you? Have given your life to God yet?

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
