The God of My Salvation

“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.” (Psalm 25:3-5)

Have you encountered persecution in your neighborhood, workplace, or even within your own family? How can you find comfort and relief?

In today’s text, David was discouraged by nameless enemies. Yet his discouragement was met by confident trust and consistent theology. The Lord is completely trustworthy. He cares for His people, and this fact is confirmed throughout the Psalms.

Waiting on the Lord is not a passive afterthought (Psalm 27:14; 37:7; Luke 12:35-40). No, this is an active pursuit. Biblical hope is more like a tense expectation. David knew the Lord would deliver him—if not on Earth, then certainly unto his heavenly future (2 Timothy 4:18). Consider implementing David’s pattern in your own life.
  • Adoration: Praise the Lord for His sovereignty, holiness, and omnipotence.
  • Humility: Daily seek God’s Word with faithfulness, humility, and the desire to obey.
  • Worship: Honor and thank the Lord for His gift of salvation from temporary trials and for all eternity.
  • Patience: Wait on the Lord to deliver and provide. He alone is worthy of our trust and hope.
Will you choose to adore, humbly pursue, worship, and patiently trust the God of your salvation? MH
