Thoughts On Psalms: Straight Your Way Before Me

Psalm 5:7,8
7 But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple. 8 Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies – make straight your way before me.

We are testimony to God’s “great mercy.” Our lives, our personal stories, were incomplete until we understood His mercy. His Mercy “forgets our sins and remembers them no more.”

Hebrews 8:10-12
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 11 And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.

David, by God’s Mercy, entered into the home of his Master. David, with great reverence and bowed from God’s house toward the Temple.

In the same way, by God’s Mercy, we are invited into the Church that is the Bride of Christ. We bow from inside the Body of Christ toward the Temple that is Christ.

We understand that by His mercy we are made clean. We know it is only by Jesus, The Christ, that penalty for our sin is paid.

David knew, too. God’s mercies are multiple and never-ending.   He is patient in His love.  He wants us to find Him in His Tabernacle.

God’s directive to us is “to love Him with all your heart, your soul, your strength and your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus said, “Do these and you will obey all the commandments.”

David asks God to “make straight Your way before me.” We ask for the same. Father, we ask to follow Your path. Please make us to see it and to walk it hand-in-hand with You.

Amen. Bless God today. Be blessed
