Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 28 - Evening

"Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.
They will spend their days in prosperity,
and their descendants will inherit the land.

The Lord confides in those who fear him;
he makes his covenant known to them.

My eyes are ever on the Lord,
for only he will release my feet from the snare.
Turn to me and be gracious to me,
for I am lonely and afflicted.
Relieve the troubles of my heart
and free me from my anguish.
Look on my affliction and my distress
and take away all my sins."

- Psalms 25:12-18

David Teaches Us How to Trust the Lord for Strength and Deliverance    

Psalm 25 is one of the nine acrostic psalms. An acrostic psalm has a verse for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet and that verse begins with the corresponding Hebrew letter. This was a system designed to assist the student and the worshipper with memorization of the text. Assisting the worshipper with the ability to remember the content of the psalm would enable the worshipper to apply the principles of the psalm to their daily life. (Psalm 25 is missing two of the 23 Hebrew letters: waw, the 6th and qof, the 19th letter).

In the opening two verses David establishes that he is:

  1. Waiting on the Lord
  2. Has lifted his soul up to the Lord
  3. Has trusted in the Lord because David knows God’s character, covenant love and God’s previous acts of deliverance (25:6)

Although David has sinned in the past (25:7, 18) he is different from the enemies who resist God’s counsel and truth, and instead, refuse to walk in his ways (25:3). Instead, David asks to be taught by the Lord (25:4) and seeks to know the Lord’s ways (25:4).

Friendship (or, counsel) with the Lord is David’s hope (25:14), so he steadily gazes (25:15) as he:

  1. Waits for the Lord (25:1-5)
  2. Seeks the Lord (25:4)
  3. Expects deliverance to come from the Lord (25:6, 15)

Deliverance will be “repose” (Hebrew “talin”, 25:13) which means “peace”, “sleep” and “good things” in this life for David and the inheritance of the earth for David’s next generation.

Life sets many “traps” or “nets” which come from a Hebrew word referring to traps set for small animals. But, David has turned to steadily gaze at the Lord. Now, the Lord needs to “turn to” the psalmist David and “be gracious.” David is waiting for help based on God’s mercy. He is alone and in need of friendship wit God. He is afflicted and in need of God’s salvation.

There are two problems:

  1. Affliction, trouble and enemies from the world (25:18-19)
  2. Sins from David’s own human weakness

David needs the Lord’s intervention for deliverance. This deliverance is based on the Lord’s graciousness (25:16) and on David’s constant looking to the Lord for help (25:15)

  Christian Quote from Church History
“Nobody ever outgrows Scriptures; the Book widens and deepens with our years.”
- Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Something to Ponder??

According to Jesus in
Mark 4:24-25 the amount
of God’s Word that you understand is equal to the amount you already understand and apply to life.

“Consider carefully what you hear. With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.”

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Euangelizo (Gr) – Proclaim Good News (Eng) – euangelizo is a Greek word that is translated “to preach good tidings” in Luke 4:18 as quoted from Isaiah. Euangelizo is also used in Acts 13:32, Romans 10:15 and Hebrews 4:2 to say “to brings good tidings” and “to declare glad tidings” referring to the presentation of the facts of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In 1 Thessalonians 3:6 and
Luke 1:19 it is referring to announcing good news that is something other than the
Gospel message of Jesus Christ.


A seal that reads, “Belonging to Shema, servant of Jeroboam,”
was found at Megiddo. (see Details Here and Here and Image Here.) Jeroboam was the king of northern Israel for 41 years (1 Kings 14:23-29).

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Do I seek the Lord? Do I wait for the Lord’s answer?
Do I anticipate that the Lord will reply to my request with a manifested response in my life?
I will seek the Lord and wait expectantly for his response.

  "Whoever leads the upright along an evil path
    will fall into their own trap,
    but the blameless will receive a good inheritance."
