Teach Us, Oh LORD

Psalm 86:11   (KJV)   11 Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

Having a humble and teachable heart is essential to living in and for God. Having a pure heart is essential to fearing God’s Name.

Psalms 86.11 - Teach Us, Oh LORDWe desire to follow after our precious LORD. The way we do that is by knowing His Word, His ways, and His will. This comes through spending time with Him and His Word. We can’t honestly say we’re living in obedience to Him if we don’t know what to obey. Else, we’ll be hypocritical, and that’s not the kind of heart we want to have. We want to keep our hearts pure before God; that’s one of the ways we honor God, and honoring Him is what we want to do.

We’re grateful to God because He teaches us and is willing to teach us. He’s always waiting, willing, ready to pour our His wisdom to us. So we come before Him, with sincere hearts, with loving fear of Him, with open hearts and minds, we fill ourselves with His precious truths.
