Teach Me Your Ways
Read Psalms 86:1 through 88:18; Acts 27:21–44
“Practice makes perfect.” These words are spoken often to encourage children to practice hard at something they are trying to learn. Whether it is hitting a baseball or playing the piano, a student must faithfully practice to master these skills. Becoming good at something requires dedication and hard work.
This is also true when it comes to walking in God’s ways. Honoring God with a lifestyle of godliness and faithfulness does not simply happen by accident; it is learned and developed through practice.
Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name (Psalm 86:11).
God provides the Holy Spirit to teach, inspire, and encourage His followers to grow to maturity in Him. Just as a father shows his son how to properly hold and swing a bat, the Holy Spirit teaches those hearts who are turned towards God to walk in His ways
Prayer Suggestion: Ask God to give you an undivided heart for Him and to teach you to walk in His ways.
