Psalm 25:14 Living Bible
“Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence him. With them alone he shares the secrets of his promises.”
Why would anyone be satisfied with a casual or passing relationship with the creator of all things? It is those who revere God that are inclined to serve him. It is with those who draw near to him that God bestows his blessings, not those who do not appreciate them for what they are. He loves us all unconditionally and looks for that same love in return. While we cannot experience him with our senses, but by faith we can feel his spirit as it moves around and thru us.
The theme of this Psalm of David is that it is a prayer for defense, guidance and pardon. Like all of scripture, it easily pertains to us today as well. We certainly need the Lord’s protection, direction and forgiveness. We will always need that. As we draw close and stay close to our Lord we will grow spiritually, allowing for growth in both our faith and trust in him. The maturation process of the Christian takes place in direct connection to our constant desire to behave like our Savior.
Like David, we must place our undying, unwavering love and trust in our Heavenly Father for he alone is our salvation from ourselves and all that we have done against his will and word. We can come to know the deeper nuances of his wisdom and meaning, but only thru earnest prayer and searching. God does not conceal from his faithful children that which they seek as long as it is in line with his will. Serve God for his promises and blessings are limitless. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
