— Here is Psalms 25, giving us what so many of us need:
good counsel, to seek by faith God’s help and wisdom,
and in particular through prayer, as counseled
by James 1: 5-6. We all need this approach
throughout our lives. Beset by the evils
of this world, only through faith can it
be overcome, with Prayer for God’s help,
ever present. Really what comes first is hope,
never lose your hope and stay
strong in your faith!

Psalm 25 — Asking for God’s Help,
with Explanation

When in trouble, have faith and seek
God’s wisdom and answers through prayer.

The Daily Walk with Love, December 30, 2017, by Paul Evans. I will try to make this simple, really, just don’t give up, always have hope, as in the accompanying graphic. I know that poor people and even the average American have a raw deal these days, with some 50 to 75 percent of us now living paycheck to paycheck. The greed of the super-rich is rapacious and these people even justify it and think themselves Christian (and perhaps some of them are. God may have other thoughts on the matter, but meanwhile we have to survive and it’s tough.) I personally have been homeless a few times, so I know how the poor suffer. Really, though, despite our suffering I feel we shouldn’t judge the Illuminati, they simply have no conception of “what it’s like” or even, perhaps, that we poor are sentient beings of equal worth to God as they are, with hopes and dreams, suffering and pain, and that they are mainly to blame for our suffering. I imagine most of the Illuminati basically have hardened themselves to the suffering of the poor and try not to think about it. God loves the poor: this is shot through the Bible, so a special request I ask of any rich person who might read this Psalm is that they might especially read A Christmas Appeal to the Illuminati Elite, published recently on The Daily Walk with Love, and also see my own appeal, immediately below. In asking for God’s help with this Psalm, I am primarily thinking about the need to keep my own faith strong in the face of adversity. Featured photograph is from Daily Verses.net.

The Daily Walk with Love needs your charitable help. I am the owner here, Paul, there is no other owner, and I must live on a minimum disability while I try to run this website. It has not been at all easy. Because we host a lot of videos here, our hosting (with GoDaddy’s server computers) is at an elevated level. Therefore, hosting costs me about $120 per six months and in my current situation I simply cannot come up with that on my own. Any kind soul liking any of my content and wanting to help me should first send an email to Paul Evans, paul.miracles57@gmail.com. Thank you and God Bless you all: Happy New Year everyone!!!

See A View of God and What He Is, The Daily Walk with Love, December 30, 2017: Here is what it means to me, Paul Evans, (the owner here), to believe in God, in other words, an explanation, as God has shown me, and through the study of comparative religion for many years, who and what He is, and in what way we are to believe in Him. In a short recapitulation, it is easy to say, “God is Light,” but really, Jesus said, “God is Life, in Him is no darkness at all.” So what are we to believe? These are my thoughts.

I thought I would introduce Psalm 25 with a great piece I found explaining it for the layman on Bible.org, Psalm 25: Seeking God in the Hard Times:

Have you ever been in a difficult trial and you knew that you were in the trial because of your own sin? You knew that you should cry out to God for help, but you were afraid to do so because of your sin. Or, maybe your problems were not due to deliberate sin, but rather because of immaturity or stupid decisions. Sometimes even though I have prayed for guidance and wisdom, I still have done something that resulted in a heap of trouble. What should you do at such times?

Psalm 25 teaches us to seek God in the hard times, no matter for what reason we are in those hard times. It seems to me that James 1:5-6 is a succinct summary of Psalm 25: “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.” The context of James’ counsel is the need for wisdom in the midst of various trials (James 1:2-3). James tells us by faith to seek God and His wisdom in our trials. That’s what David tells us in Psalm 25 (KJV):

See Matthew Henry’s 1710 Commentary on Psalm 25, which notes that the first part of Psalm 25, verses 1-7, are about confidence in prayer, the second part, verses 8-14, deal in the remission of sin, while verses 15-22 are about receiving God’s help when we are afflicted. The feeling I got about this Psalm overall was that it was all about faith and prayer in receiving God’s help in our lives.

25 Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

4 Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.

5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

6 Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.

8 Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.

9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

10 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. (Proverbs 3:3)

11 For thy name’s sake, O Lord, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.

12 What man is he that feareth the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.

14 The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

15 Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.

16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.

17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.

18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.

19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.

20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.

21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.

22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
