The psalmist David wrote,
“Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”. Psalm 86:11
As I read this passage of the Bible, it seems that David keeps asking God to “hear his prayer.” A simple prayer – one with a heart of emotional need and apparent surrender. We know David was not perfect. Maybe he felt inadequate to approach God on the day he prayed this sentence. He definitely needed grace. His prayer strikes a chord in my heart. I too need God’s grace. Remember the Lord’s simple instruction in Matthew 6 before He taught the disciples how to pray?
“And when you come before God, don’t turn that into a theatrical production either…Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.” (MSG).
Today get away for a moment or two and make this simple prayer your heart’s cry. “Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth.” AMEN!
