Daily Devotional: October 17, 2023 – Psalm 25:14-15

The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare. – Psalm 25:14-15

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Let’s soak in the words of today’s verse, “The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare.” – Psalm 25:14-15

Imagine the Lord as a gentle stream. The “fear” we feel for Him is not chills or fright. No, it’s more like respect. It’s like recognizing the way the stream carves pathways through the mountains, understanding that it’s more powerful, wiser, and carries a deeper, hidden strength.

When we honor God’s place in our lives, He rains down on us His promises. His “covenant” is like the steady ebb and flow of the stream, trustworthy and everlasting.

The verse also speaks of a “snare”. Imagine it like a thorny vine along our path, an unexpected hardship or mistake that catches us off guard. These thorny bushes can feel like they’ve gripped us tightly, keeping us from moving forward.

Yet, the beauty here is that God, like the gentle stream, is always flowing beside us. He has the power to wash away these thorny snags. For every challenge we face, we can look towards Him for guidance and support. He will always be there, leading us along. Our task is merely to follow His path, eyes unwaveringly on Him!

My Prayer

Dear God,

In the hustle and bustle of each day, we lose sight of Your mighty strength and power. Help us remember that no matter what, You are always with us, like a gentle stream that never stops flowing.

Thank You for Your unbreakable promises. They are like stable stepping stones in the stream, guiding our path. Help us to trust these promises, even when the waters get rough. God, life sometimes traps us in thorny snares, and it’s hard for us to get free. We pray for Your wisdom to guide us out of these snares. Help us not to be scared, but to trust in You.

Teach us to keep our eyes on You, dear Lord. Remind us that You are always there and that with You, we can overcome anything.

We pray in Your mighty name, Amen.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
