Psalm 25:3, 5 NIV 2011
No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause.

David was suffering because of his sin as well as vicious attacks from enemies. He turned to the Lord in prayer asking for God’s mercy. Psalm 23:6, “Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are of old.” He confessed where he placed his hope. His prayer included his personal request for direction and forgiveness. Psalm 25:4a, “Guide me in your truth and teach me.” David found his hope in the Lord. Psalm 25:21b, “Because my hope, Lord, is in you.” Trusting the Lord David modeled God’s mighty power illustrated in his life. Those who hope in the Lord declare His mighty power.
A nurse asked if I was having a stress test this morning. I remember crying out to the Lord while a CT scan was being completed after our midnights drive to the ER.

My hope is found in Him, enabling me to daily proclaim His mighty power.
How do we proclaim God’s mighty power?
Hoping in the Lord,
