Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your goodÂ Spirit lead me on level ground. – (Psalm 143:10)
In this psalm, we cry out to God because we are aware of enemiesÂ who are set to attack us and of our personal sins that so easilyÂ entangle us in evil. On our own, we have no personal power to standÂ up under the weight of these two realities. Yet, our heart criesÂ out to God asking him to teach us to do his will and for the SpiritÂ to guide us to the place where we can walk on solid ground and liveÂ the life that pleases God. Rather than giving up in circumstancesÂ that seem insurmountable, we cry out to our Father in heaven andÂ trust that the Holy Spirit brings his answer and his power into ourÂ lives and brings God’s blessing and God’s deliverance.
Prayer : O Father, through your good Spirit, please teach me to do yourÂ will and live your life in my world.
