From Pastor’s Desk:
Psalm 25:14-15 (KJV) 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.
“His counsel is contained in his word, by which he declares that he is the protector of the faithful,” says Geneva Bible Notes.
John Wesley comments “His love and favor, which is called his secret, because it is known to none but him that enjoys it.” Further, he says of “Will shew” “He will make them clearly to understand it, both its duties and its blessings; neither of which ungodly men rightly understand. His secret counsel is with the upright. He will deliver me out of all my troubles.”
The “net” is frequently used as a figure for dangers by enemies (SEE Psalm 9:15; 10:9).
Sometimes we get our feet caught in the “nets” of others, and often in our own “net” and don’t know how to get free. God, will show us His love and favor, because we fear (reverence) Him. The Psalmist says his “eyes are ever toward the Lord,” knowing that God will always deliver him from danger.
Should we not keep our eyes on the Lord, as well? No one else can deliver like God delivers. There is no love or favor like God’s.
The qualifying phrase in the verse is “with them that fear him.” If we do that as our part, He will most certainly do His part.
