“Waiting On God” ( Psalm 25: 15, ESV ) by Carley Evans

My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for He plucks my feet out of the net.” (Psalm 25:15, ESV)

Evil forces — whether persons, demons, or tortured spirits — are always throwing nets out in front of those of us who walk according to God the Holy Spirit. What I never forget is God “plucks my feet out of [those] nets.” Even if I see the net and yet step into it willfully in a spirit of disobedience, God the Holy Spirit is faithful to rescue.

My prayer is akin to David’s: “For Thy Name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.” (Psalm 25:11, KJV) I trust the Lord to show mercy and to “bring me out of my distresses.” (Psalm 25:17, KJV) I believe God “keeps my soul, and delivers me.” (Psalm 25:20, KJV) Therefore, I pray with David, “Let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in Thee. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on Thee.” (Psalm 25:20-21, KJV)

    Thanks for your readership, Drusilla!

  4. I am behind on my blog reading because of all that is happening around here and I am trying to get caught up … and each one is a lesson I need to hear TODAY. Do you think that is coincidence? (I don’t!)
