In worshipping God, we must lift up our souls to him


 PSALM 25

thCB3506K1

Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul O my God,  I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed : let them be ashamed which transgress without cause

 Shew me thy ways, O Lord teach me thy paths, Lead me in thy truth and teach me for thou art thy God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all day.
Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy loving-kindness; for they have been ever of old.Remember not the sins of my youth, nor thy transgressions according to thy mercy, remember  thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.               
                           
 

Matthew Henry Commentary say’s that the psalmist is earnest for the pardon of his sins. When God pardons sin, he is said to remember it no more, which denotes full remission. It is God’s goodness, and not ours, his mercy, and not our merit, that must be our plea for the pardon of sin, and all the good we need. This plea we must rely upon, feeling our own unworthiness, and satisfied of the riches of God’s mercy and grace. How boundless is that mercy which covers for ever the sins and follies of a youth spent without God and without hope! Blessed be the Lord, the blood of the great Sacrifice can wash away every stain.
