David not only had good text-book information about God, he knew God. Do you speak to God like this? What verse stands up and grabs your attention? Meditate on it.
As with all the psalms we’ve read so far, there is just so much in this one! You can take a segment and meditate on it and uncover truth after wonderful truth.
This is how we should be petitioning the Lord, with the sorts of requests we see in v4 and 5, “Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me;”
Why? What reason does David have to ask the Lord of this? What reason do we have?
“… For you are the God of my salvation;”
This is the God we serve, He has saved us! He has already done the work, so what is our response?
Let’s be encouraged to keep on asking and begging and imploring the Lord to TEACH US HIS WAYS. Oh that we would grow more and ever onwards in our knowledge and understanding of Him, in our love for Him (founded in His love), in our desire to know Him and be nearer to Him.
And that little end of v5, it’s a real cracker. It speaks to David’s mentality, to where his mind sits and thinks on.
“… For you I wait all the day long.”
Let’s be both encouraged and convicted by what is in this psalm.
And praise God that He is the God of our salvation who _does_ lead us in truth and teaches us His ways.
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
