Always I will lift up my soul into your presence, Yahweh. Be there for me, my God, for I keep trusting in you. Don’t allow my foes to gloat over me or the shame of defeat to overtake me. Could anyone be disgraced when he has entwined his heart with yours? But my foes will all be defeated and ashamed when they harm the innocent. Direct me, Yahweh, throughout my journey so I can experience your plans for my life. Reveal the life-paths that are pleasing to you. Escort me into your truth; take me by the hand and teach me. For you are the God of my salvation; I have wrapped my heart into yours all day long! Psalm 25:1-5 TPT
Psalm 25 is one I read almost daily. I love how it begins, “Always I will lift up my soul into your presence, Yahweh. Be there for me, my God, for I keep trusting in you.” I believe it’s so important for me as a daughter of the King, to lift my soul, because that is where my emotions lie, and we all know how fickle they can be. When my emotions become touched by the presence of God, everything changes. My highs and lows are balanced and yielded to Him so that I can complete the assignments of my day.
“Direct me, Yahweh, throughout my journey so I can experience your plans for my life. Reveal the life-paths that are pleasing to you. Escort me into your truth; take me by the hand and teach me. For you are the God of my salvation; I have wrapped my heart into yours all day long!”
And that is what life is all about, being one with the Father, our hearts intertwined, His will becoming my will and mine continually surrendered to Him. Being escorted into His will displays a picture of the Spirit leading us into a place we’ve never been before. In my minds eye, I see a vivid rendering of my daddy walking me down the isle, giving my hand to Walt in our own union. A lifetime of learning as much about each other as we’re yielded and submitted to learn. To wrap my heart into His all day long.
Thats enough to get my heart excited as I begin my day trusting God today and everyday. There is nothing that happens that He’s not aware of. He leads and directs every step I take and He always and forever, keeps His Word. I cannot possibly hold onto what I have. I must lay them all down and grab hold of His hand if where He is, is truly where I want to be.
If you’re facing something you can’t understand, and nothing around you makes any sense at all, stop and hand it over to God because He knows what to do with it all. Your situation, it won’t change until you do. Do you see your problem? Put it in your hands and lift it up to God, a sacrificial offering. Tell Him, “I surrender all of it to you. My finances, my children, my spouse, my job, my health, my fears and my failures. I cannot handle what I wasn’t meant to. I release it to You and I praise and worship You for You’re well able to take what I’ve committed to You and use if all for Your glory. It’s in Jesus’ mighty matchless name, Amen.”
Worshipping With You,
