Listen in confidence

Psalm 25:10-14
10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful
       for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
 11 For the sake of your name, O LORD,
       forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
 12 Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD ?
       He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
 13 He will spend his days in prosperity,
       and his descendants will inherit the land.
 14 The LORD confides in those who fear him;
       he makes his covenant known to them.

I really like verse 14.  The Lord will tell you what he wants from you if you fear him.  Fearing him may be a problem for us.  I get complacent at times and do not realize what it is like to fear him.  I think that when we fear God, it should mean that we are in awe of him.  We should treat God and his name with the reverence that he deserves and demands.  If we keep his commands, he will love us and protect us for all.  We just need to ask for forgiveness for our sins. 

The Lord does confide in us.  He tells us everything we need to know in the Bible.  We just have to be open to his word.  We also need to have confidence in those we elect to lead his church, and those that help with every aspect of teaching.  God will instruct those who love him and want to be faithful.  Just be open to hearing what the Lord has to say through the many channels he gives us.  Everyday there are opportunities for us to listen.  That is my goal today.  I want to listen to God with confidence that he is speaking directly to me.
