Teach Me to Do Thy Will

Teach Me to Do Thy Will

Psalm 143:10

Teach me to do Thy will,    
For Thou art my God;    
Let Thy good Spirit lead me on level ground.

We all need God  to teach us  His will.     If we don’t allow God  to teach us His ways,  all of our naturally  worldly ways will lead us  to eternal destruction.     Even if we believe  in doing all sorts  of good works  and generously giving all our money  to the poor,  we will not be saved.

Doing God’s will  is living  in the true faith,  hope,  and love.     If we choose  to live in our own self-righteousness,  we are treading  on very shaky ground.     Our good works  will not save us  because we are depending  on our own self — making ourselves  into a mini-god  of sorts.

If we choose  to live by any  of the various worldly philosophies  or religions  in this world,  we are denying the LORD God.     That,  too,  is traveling  on rough ground  that will not lead us  to eternal life.

The only safe way  to travel  through this world is  to have God teach us  His ways.     Then we will be  on solid,  level ground — the only good place to be.     God teaches us  through His word  —  the Bible.     That is what we need  to study  and take to heart  in faith.

Content  in the fellowship  of our Creator and Redeemer,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  You made all things  and sustain all things.     You know for sure  what is good and right  for us.     Let us have the common sense  to learn  from You,  for all true knowledge and wisdom are  from You.”

I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
