Memory Monday – Week 67

Psalm 25:3 says, “No one who waits on you will be put to shame.” When we think of shame in a biblical perspective it is defined as being let down or disappointed. This definition of shame has nothing to do with the worldly definition which is to be embarrassed. Isn’t this such a beautiful verse? No one who waits on Him will ever be disappointed! It reminds me of Romans 5:5 – “Hope in Him will never disappoint.”

I often talk about waiting actively. This verse doesn’t mean we can just sit back, relax, and expect not to be disappointed. But, we should wait actively with confidence and expectationTo wait on the Lord is to put 100% of your confidence in Him – not in the circumstances around you.

I love that in the verses preceding and following Psalm 25:3, David offers His prayers to God, puts His trust in God, and asks God to teach him His ways. Doesn’t that set us up for waiting with wisdom and hope? Put your trust in Him and ask God to guide you along your path – I promise you will not be disappointed in your wait.

Psalm 25:3 - Memory Monday - No one who puts their hope in the Lord will be put to shame

    Great verse today! When we were waiting on our big miracle, I wrote down all the verses I could find out waiting. I don’t remember this one specifically, but it definitely should’ve been on my list.

    Oh thank you, I needed this today. I’m trying soo hard to let go this month, but also wondering how hard I will take each passing month until it happens. Trying to cling to God’s promises!

    I never knew about that definition of shame! How enlightening! That knowledge makes that verse so much more beautiful and promising.

    I always learn something from you Caroline.

    Thank you my friend.

    Amen girl. Shame is a tool of the enemy that needs to be done away with! Love the thought of active waiting. Sometimes I’m a little too active! 😛
