Experiencing God

Show me the right path, O Lord;
   point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
   for you are the God who saves me.
   All day long I put my hope in you.
Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love,
   which you have shown from long ages past.
Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth.
   Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
   for you are merciful, O Lord.
Psalm 25:4-7 (NLT)

Our experience with God is interactive.

God’s Role                                                      Our Role
Show/Demonstrate                                           Watch and see
Teach                                                                    Follow/Learn
Guide/Lead                                                         Hope/Trust
Show compassion/unfailing love                   Receive
Forgive/Forget                                                   Praise/Witness

This creates a cause and effect. It is not one-sided. We can only do our part because God does his. It’s a relationship. It’s a gift.
