Mercy Paths (Psalm 25 Meditation)

Mercy Paths (Psalm 25 Meditation)

 

 

Mercy Paths Runholy Podcast Scripture Meditation Psalm 25

 

I recorded a scripture meditation from a special psalm where I discovered GOD’s Mercy Paths. Psalm 25 is a great psalm when you’re looking for life direction or wisdom on specific life choices. It talks about “bringing our life to God”. It says that God “teaches the humble His way”. It’s humility that drives our eyes upward during important times of transition. Only the humble seek God’s counsel on direction. The prideful think they’ve got it all figured out. The humble seek God’s advice as a vital necessity. I’ve come to this humble realization through a bunch of prideful life choices which took me through some hard knocks.

He leads the humble in what is right, and the humble HE teaches His way. -ps25:9

When I was searching for answers on my future husband and God’s will for my life, Psalm 25 became a very special place for me. I remember those times of seeking on the back desert plains of west Texas. I remember the freedom I found within the walls of this psalm.

There was so much fear surrounding making the “right choice”. As I had learned before, God’s will is not a tightrope but a playground. Yes there is a fence and boundaries but there is fun and freedom. If we feel we are walking a tight rope when making choices, that is not freedom. That’s not what He means by the narrow way. I believe the narrow way is actually found in the small daily choices of obedience and devotion. These actually matter more to God than the “big choices”. I found freedom in psalm 25.

In verse 10, He says “all the paths are mercy”. Within our humanity and unique personality we will journey and digress down complex paths. He works all these paths together for our good and for the future that we have hoped for. When we look to Him and wait in hope for His direction, we will never be put to shame. Mercy will cover every choice we make. Down every path we will find mercy. His goodness will follow us Dow EVERY path we choose. We don’t have to be afraid about choosing a wrong path because all the paths we walk down seeking him along the way are mercy.

Show me your ways, oh Lord; teach me your paths. Ps25:4

He will instruct “sinners” in His way it says in verse 8. Isn’t this an interesting verse? Especially since it follows verse 7 which talks about Him remembering no more our sins. The theology of that is very complex but also simple. I think the gist of it is this: God is good. In his mercy, he teaches even those that have sinned against him.

Psalm 25 was a sweet chapter of encounter for a season of my life. Do you have those sweet spots in every Bible?  I included two versions in this meditation because they were both so rich.

I’ve begun making videos for specific bible verses and scripture meditation. I use a tool I found on soundcloud for scripture meditation, but they only make audio for the gospels. That tool is called Audio Lectio and can be found here.

There are many promises for scripture meditation.

I’ve enjoyed fresh revelation and soul change from simply listening and contemplating a verse over and over. Praying this audio will help myself and others to do that.

This will also help with memorization. The word is our sword. Memorized verses are like grenades in our arsenal.

Listening to verses arms our soul with strength while also washing us in the cleansing power of the word.Our souls, washed and strong, are able to conquer anything and lift up others around us with Truth.

These videos will be short so you can squeeze in some meditation throughout the day in little free moments like while doing chores, driving (listen-audio only), waiting in line, idle moments at work, or just before bed. As a mom, I need tools like this.

Subscribe and you will be notified of future verse meditations. Give me feedback on whether this was helpful to you.  Also, let me know verses that would help you to have in your arsenal. As this is my first verse video, let me know what is helpful to you…is the number of times the verse is repeated suitable? Looking forward to hearing back from all of you!

 

Grace & Peace,

Crawling, Baby Weight, and Grace…

Sofia is crawling all over the place, curious about everything… Not even 8 months old, but she’s changing so fast.

I finally lost the last of my baby weight. And I’m doing new workouts that are less than 20 minutes long. It allows me to fit in quick workouts during Sofia’s naps. They really challenge my body too. You can find them here: ZuzkaLight.com. She also has really good tips on nutrition.

God has me on a journey of this mystery of grace. I’m learning that nothing I can do can make me MORE righteous than Christ has already made me. Paul & I are starting to study Galatians before bed. And Sofia gives me so much revelation on the grace and love of my Father every day.

Peace,

Lauren
