Show me your ways Lord

The ways of our God are straight and we must walk in them every day, because being in the right way of God we will know more about Him and about the things that we must practice day after day.

Oh Lord, teach us Your ways every day, strengthen our lives and remove all bandages that prevent us from walking in Your paths, because in this way we can advance and we will not deviate from Your statutes.

The Lord is the one who shows us the way we should walk, He is the one who opens our eyes so that we do not stumble. Let’s give glory to God because He is always present to help us when we want to stray from the path. God is our good shepherd.

Psalm 25 shows us some words expressed by David towards God, asking for protection, forgiveness and direction.

4 Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.

5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

6 Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

Psalm 25:4-6

Why did the psalmist ask for these things? Well, we can see that David, like everyone, even though he was a king, could sin and sometimes that happened, this man failed before God, but as the text we just read says, David asked for the direction, forgiveness and protection of God.

So as human beings we are, at any time we can fail before God, we are not perfect, but if this happens, what should we do? Go before the presence of God, ask for forgiveness and also ask Him to give us direction and to protect us every day.
