The God Who Faithfully Leads
Psalm 25

This week, Pastor David shared a message from Psalm 25, reflecting on the God who faithfully leads us. We pondered the questions:

  • Do You Trust God To Guide Your Life?
  • Are You Asking God To Guide Your Life?
  • Will You Trust God When You Cannot Discern His Guidance In Your Life?


Pastor David shared that Psalm 25 doesn’t begin with a plea for help, but with a statement of trust. The Psalmist tells us that there is no risk in allowing the Lord to lead our lives. He will never fail you or betray you. When are you tempted to lose trust in God and take the wheel of your own life instead?

The Psalmist's heart was a submissive heart, and his spirit was submissive to be led. He prayed to be made, to be taught, and to be led. Are you asking God to make you, teach you, and lead you? How can you change your schedule this week to make more time to pray and to seek the Lord’s guidance in your life?

Often, we do not have the guidance of the Lord because we do not ask. Pastor David noted that many times we want the outcome (God’s leadership) without living in submission to Him and asking for His guidance (Proverbs 3:5–6). In what areas of your life are you exhibiting an attitude of, “I've got this, God” instead of praying for and seeking God’s leadership?

Pastor David reminded us that we can trust God even when we cannot discern His guidance in our lives. We can always trust God because He is good, upright, and faithful (vv. 8–9). While we are often not aware of what God is doing in much of our daily lives, we can trust that when we seek Him, He promises to lead us to what is good for us and ultimately what brings Him glory. When you look back, how can you see God’s faithful leadership in your life?

The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24–26
