In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, Lord, are good. Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant. For the sake of your name, Lord, forgive my iniquity, though it is great. Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose They will spend their days in prosperity, and their descendants will inherit the land. 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. Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Look on my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins. See how numerous are my enemies and how fiercely they hate me! Guard my life and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord,] is in you. Deliver Israel, O God, from all their troubles!
God will not let our enemies overcome us or triumph over us. We will not be put to shame because God will protect us from our enemies. We hope in God and we will never be put to shame.
But shame comes to the evil and treacherous who are treacherous without cause. People who commit evil acts for no cause and without conscience.
The psalmist asks the Lord to show him his paths and to teach him his paths because first we need to know his commands and then we can know His paths. God is our Savior and He is our only hope all day long because He is God and that is it.
All of God’s ways are merciful and compassionate to those who follow His paths and obey His commands. Remember your mercy oh Lord which is from old and will carry on forever for thousands and thousands of years. His mercy and hope are all we live for and hope in.
Lord don’t remember the sins of our youth or our rebellious ways but forgive them and He has forgiven them in His Son Jesus Christ. He will remember His love and mercy toward His children and He will always remember His love toward us.
God instructs sinners in His way and He has instructed all of mankind in His ways through Jesus Christ by forgiving all of man’s sins because He loved us so much. If we trust in the Lord we will lack no good thing and we will walk prosperity all the days of our lives.
