Day 4: God is Greater

Day 4 of the 7 day Worship Devotional Series. For 7 days, we are featuring a devotional paired up with a song written on the same scripture. Every day on the blog we will publish a new devotion and a new song from the NewSpring Worship Team.

Read: Psalm 25

Last summer I went through a high ropes course. I never thought that I was afraid of heights, but when I was 30 feet up in the air, standing on an unstable surface, I quickly realized that I am. I knew that I was safely connected to the wires and that they were more than strong enough to hold me, but I didn't focus on any of that at the time. All that raced through my mind was how I was going to fall. I let my thoughts get carried away, and it made me more afraid than I needed to be.

The same is true when it comes to our relationship with God. We need to be cautious about what we think, especially when we are going through rough seasons or when we feel lonely and afflicted. It's tempting to focus on how deep your sin runs or how hopeless your circumstances are, but, when all we think about is our sin, it starts to appear to have more power over us than it actually does, and we are tempted to lose hope.

David shows us how to fight this battle in Psalm 25. Although he is experiencing deep affliction, he says in verse 5 that he still hopes in God all day long. He also says in verse 15 that his "eyes are ever on the Lord." In order to hope in God all day long, we have to look to Him all day long. When we fill our minds with thoughts about God, our souls are filled with hope and peace. Seeing God’s value makes sin seem less desirable and circumstances less devastating. Remember, God's not focusing on your sin and He's in control of every situation, so you don't need to worry. Keep your focus on Him, and trust Him to be your strength and your song of joy in this season.
