Psalm 25:1-3

To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, in You I trust, do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me. Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed.
Psalm 25:1-3
What is your first response when you are faced with a trial in your own life? The first and best offensive strike is to use the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, and a prayer of trust to your Lord…No wonder David’s psalms are filled with prayers of trust to his Lord. Over and over again, David cried out to the Lord for help and then declared what God was able to do…David affirmed his trust in God when he said, “In the Lord I put my trust” (Psalm 11:1 NKJV). Trust shines in the stormy environment. John Henry Jowett describes David’s experience this way: “The sun is down. The stars are hid. The waters are out. The roads are broken up. And in the very midst of the darkness and desolation one hears the triumphant cry of the psalmist, ‘In the Lord put I my trust.’ The singer is a soul in difficulty. He is the victim of relentless antagonists. He is pursued by implacable foes. The fight would appear to be going against him. The enemies are overwhelming and, just at this point of seeming defeat and imminent disaster, there emerges this note of joyful confidence in God. ‘In the Lord put I my trust.’ It is a song in the night.”
