Psalm 25: His unfailing love–yesterday, today, and tomorrow

As I read Psalm 25, I am taken by its timelessness.  The ancient psalm writer certainly could not have imagined the world, the readers, of the 21st century.  Yet here we are, once again reminded that God is timeless and eternal, breathing deeply the meaning of this Psalm in our everyday lives.

                              Lord, I give my life to you.
                                                                                                 I trust in you, my God!

                                Show me the right path, O Lord;
                                                                                          point out the road for me to follow.
                                            Lead me by your truth and teach me,

                                                  you are the God who saves me.
                                               All day long I put my hope in you.

                             Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love,
                                                                             which you have shown from long ages past.

Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
    for you are merciful, O Lord.

The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness
    all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.

God’s Mercy

“In the world of the Bible, the real explanation for the force shaping the course of things is gathered up in one radiant word: mercy. Creation in its entirety is a work of God’s love and though it is fractured by every sort of strife, it cannot escape the gravity of mercy.  God’s mercy fills the earth (Psalm 35:5). Mercy is the deepest quality of God’s love, the most stunning, unexpected evidence of God’s generosity, the most enduring commitment of God’s sovereignty…. Flexible and strong, mercy is capable of bearing sorrow’s weight and of supporting every honest effort to build new life.”
