My favorite daily Bible reading plan is the One Year Chronological Bible. In case you are interested in this plan, the month of May is a great time to start. Most of the readings are from the Psalms and it would be an excellent place in the Old Testament to begin.

For those reading along in the One Year Chronological Bible reading plan, Psalm 25 was part of the daily reading on May 8th.
Let’s focus in on verse 14. So much in this one little verse! I’ve chosen to share the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition because it captures the point of the verse so well. Basically, the AMPC allows you to more easily understand the meaning of many verses without devoting time in research. I love being able to access the AMPC but of course, nothing replaces researching for yourself.
The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him,
And He will let them know His covenant and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning. – Psalm 25:14 AMPC
Here is an excerpt from what Charles Spurgeon beautifully wrote about Psalm 25:14
The higher spiritual life is necessarily a path which the eagle’s eye hath not known, and which the lion’s whelp has not travelled; neither natural wisdom nor strength can force a door into this inner chamber. Saints have the key of heaven’s hieroglyphics; they can unriddle celestial enigmas. They are initiated into the fellowship of the skies; they have heard words which it is not possible for them to repeat to their fellows. And he will shew them his covenant. Its antiquity, security, righteousness, fulness, graciousness and excellence, shall be revealed to their hearts and understandings, and above all, their own part in it shall be sealed to their souls by the witness of the Holy Spirit. The designs of love which the Lord has to his people in the covenant of grace, he has been pleased to show to believers in the Book of Inspiration, and by his Spirit he leads us into the mystery, even the hidden mystery of redemption. He who does not know the meaning of this verse, will never learn it from a commentary; let him look to the cross, for the secret lies there.
