Psalm 143:10 “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.”
I need God to teach me to do His will. Everyday I do things without consulting God that are far more my will than Thy will. And now, more than ever, with a world in the grip of panic, I need God to teach me to do His will. We all need clear guidance and teaching so that we can do His will. If we are to lead by example, I want my example to be one that is worthy to follow. Give me a teachable heart God.
I guess when I do my own will, I’m kind of being my own god. I’m taking control of my life instead of trusting that God is in control of my life. It usually doesn’t go so well when I take control. How about you? How does that work for you? Lord, help me to trust.
God’s way is so much better, smoother, like walking on level ground. Is there an aspect of your world today that is uneven? Are you facing a hill or a valley today? Let the Spirit lead you and guide you through whatever it is. He is good and His path is the best possible one for you. All it takes is letting go of control and trusting in the One that never fails us. Father, help me to let go and follow You.
