(Psalm 25:1-2a) To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul; in you I trust, O my God.
While reading Psalm 25, I recalled that this psalm, written by King David, was written approximately 3,000 years ago. It stands out to me that the soul of man, and our relationship to God, is the same as it was those many years ago. The truth about God and man has not changed. King David knew that if we give ourselves fully into God’s trust, we will lead a blessed life.
Imagine starting every day with this declaration: I entrust my inmost being to you, Lord. Meaning that all that I am or hope to be in this day, I give into your hands my God.
When I first awake in the morning, I lay there thinking of what the day will bring. I can think it through, make a plan, and then do whatever preparations are needed. Or, I can entrust my being to God, and let him lead me through the day. Which one would you think to be the most beneficial?
Whether 3,000 years ago or today, this life for us humans is about learning to trust God. I believe it’s that simple, but I do recognize that trusting God is a lifelong pursuit.
