What You Ask God to Teach You

In Psalm 25:12-13, I love this truth:

Who is the man who fears the Lord? Him will he instruct in the way he should choose. His soul shall abide in well being, and his offspring shall inherit the land. 

I’ve been thinking about the promise that God will instruct us in the path we should choose. What a great promise! David cries out in Psalm 27:11 the following prayer: “Teach me your way, O Lord, and lead me on a level path because of my enemies.”

I think about what I need to ask God to teach me. What decisions await me that involve choosing the right path? Where do I need more leading? What principles do I still need to understand as I grow into greater maturity? I fill my journal with a list like this:

Teach me to worship You!

Teach me to choose the right paths in writing, speaking, and teaching!

Teach me to love people better!

Teach me how to parent teenagers! 

I could go on and on and on. I’m so grateful that we have a God who instructs. He is our Great Teacher.
