Day 5 – Teach me to do Your will, O God!

Psalm 143:10 – Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!

Life is sometimes like a treacherous mountain road with deep ruts, dangerous curves, and deadly ravines. If you have ever traveled in remote areas of the world, there is no more relief than to get off that rough, primitive road and onto a smooth, paved, and level highway.

In King David’s prayer we discover the essentials in how we can find the level pathways as we travel this life of faith.

The first is a longing to possess an obedient heart. David asked the Lord to teach him how to do His will. David knew that obedience always precedes guidance! Guidance submits itself to obedience. The second is to be in tune with God’s Spirit and to experience intimate guidance through the Holy Spirit. David asked God to lead him moment by moment on the level ground in accordance with His loving kindness.

Find time today to seek God’s guidance through step-by-step obedience:

“God of all goodness, teach me how to walk in obedience with Your Word and how to be led by Your Spirit so I may find the clear and level path of pleasing You.”
