the paths of the Lord are steadfast love
|Song Of The Day|
Psalm 25:10 is a Bible verse from the Old Testament where King David teaches us that the Lord is faithful to those who are faithful to the Lord.
It’s really quite simple. God commands us over and over in the Bible to obey Him—not to stifle us or keep us from freedom and pleasure, but so that we can be free from the pitfalls in the world and be joyful in His protective companionship. We are only truly free in Christ, not apart from Christ.
For those who obey our Heavenly Father, He is faithful to fulfill the promises He made. For those who do not obey, they are quite vulnerable in the world without the protection of the Father and without the knowledge of His promises.
We obey Him, and we see His steadfast love and faithfulness in our lives. If we don’t choose to obey Him, then we don't get to personally see and enjoy His love and faithfulness.
He yearns for us to come under His wings of safety and refuge. We see it throughout the pages of the Bible, but especially upon the cross, where Jesus held out His arms wide open to draw all men to Him, even those who nailed Him to the cross.
We see King David's wisdom as he acknowledges his own sins and pleads for God's mercy toward him from Psalm 25:6-7
O Lord, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are
from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness' sake, O Lord.
There is no greater faithfulness, on the part of the Father and the Son Who loves us, than to forgive the very ones who were responsible for putting Jesus upon the cross. Each of us are responsibile for our own sins, but as we accept the greatest gift of all, we are wiped clean by the blood of Jesus Christ.
All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
The word “faithful” is defined like this: True or trustworthy in the performance of duty, especially in the fulfilment of promises, obligations and vows.
God keeps His promises. Quite honestly, none of us, no matter how committed we are to the Lord and His Word, can keep his covenant and his testimonies as Psalm 25:10 says. But because of Jesus Christ Who kept them all perfectly on our behalf, we can enjoy His friendship under His protective mercy.We tend to think of God the way we think about our earthly father, who might not be trustworthy. Let’s remember that our fathers and the fathers of our children are men, and God is God. He keeps His promises.
It doesn’t mean that bad things won’t happen to us, but what it does mean is that we can count on Him even when they do. He heals, delivers and restores.
The Hebrew meanings for “steadfast love” in Psalm 25:10 are: kindness, favour, mercy, pity.
Just as we were once unbelievers and disobedient toward God, but obtained His mercy, others too, can come to obtain His mercy (Romans 11:30-31).
If you are concerned over a loved one who does not know God, then pray for them. God hears and answers the prayers of His saints, maybe not always in the timing or the way we would like, but He answers. James 5:16 says,
“…The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
God does not give up easily. His love for each of us is far greater, wider and deeper than we can comprehend. He is ever so faithful.
Peter 3:9 says,
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.”
Let’s be confident in His faithfulness, especially in our prayers. He responds to faith (Hebrews 11:6). We can be relieved from worry and anxiety by simply remembering and believing the simple promise in Psalm 25:10.
"All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies."
Study the Bible verse of Psalm 25:10 and receive the peace of God by meditating on His steadfast love and faithfulness.
