IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU
Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
Learning things from others is something every person starts in life, and every child begins learning by observing others and copying them.
“Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.” (Psalm 143:10)
As children age, they stop learning from others to do their own thing. Most adults do not like to learn from others; they feel they know the best way to live.
Adults take risks all the time, but many of those risks fail. Many fail because most people refuse to listen to those who have been successful and fail to follow the tried and true practices of being successful because they feel they know how to do it better.
In the same way, many lives fail spiritually for the same reason. People refuse to be led by God and follow His ways of doing things, and they “refuse” how to live the best life and instead settle for what the enemy has in store for them.
David knew God’s direction for his life was the best, not his own. He also knew that he had to be taught to follow God’s plan for his life; it would not happen automatically.
Being taught to follow God’s plan for our lives may mean that some doors are closed and some paths are more difficult to travel. The biggest challenge is that it is not about us; it is all about God.
God stands by, waiting to show us the best way to live. He has been teaching for thousands of years and has a proven track record to show He knows what He is doing.
If God is your God, you must allow Him to be your God. You need to let Him lead you to live your life. He is right there, willing to teach you what to do.
Follow God’s plan for your life. Be willing to let Him teach you how to do His desires. It will be the best thing for your life.
Pray today that you will know what God’s plan is for your life, that you will remain open to the teaching of God, that you will allow God to control your life, and that you will do what God wants you to do.
Are you willing to allow God to teach you His ways, which are the best?
Heavenly Father, I see in Your Word that I must follow after Your ways and commands if I am going to have a good life. You are a great and awesome God, wanting only the best for Your children. I must be submissive to this truth and this great and awesome love that You have made available to me as Your child. I will study each day and follow Your plan for me. I will not be the foolish person that did not build his house on the Rock. You are the strong, firm foundation of my life. Thank You, Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
