How’s your journey going?

Some biblical scholars believe Psalm 71 was written by King David in the later years of his life to reflect upon the journey that he had taken with the Lord from conception onward. From these verses, we get an intimate sense of how David viewed his lifelong relationship with God:

“For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth. Upon you I have leaned from before my birth. … So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come” (verses 5,6,18 ESV).

How would you chronicle your history with the Lord? Can you look back to childhood and see, especially with the benefit of years, how God taught you? Or do you remember a point in your teenage years or adulthood when you first realized that God was walking with you and guiding you? 

Perhaps even now you are contemplating how to trust God and let him teach and guide and protect your every step. David’s testimony gives us an example of what wholehearted faith looks like and sounds like. David’s relationship with God was mature and well-tested.

How would you describe your journey? What if you sat down and wrote a psalm of praise to God for the work he has done in your life? Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you contemplate the journey that you’ve been taking with the Lord.
