Teach Me, Please

Psalm 119:25-48

Teach me your statutes and give me understanding came across loud and clear in Psalm 119:25-48. In fact, the Psalmist presents the Lord with this specific request two separate times in just a few verses. That shows me that as I read and take in His Word, I should be asking for God to help me reflect on it and then respond by living in a manner that pleases Him.

So I'm curious, how often to do you ask for God's help when you read scripture? What's your experience been with asking Him to teach you and give you understanding? Tami W.

When I read God's word, as a child of God I believe the Holy Spirit is there to guide and direct me without me asking. In the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit wasn't there so asking was a priority for knowledge and teaching to be given. But in New Testament days, we don't see that.

I think that asking though does have it assets. It focuses our minds so we do look more for what the Lord wants us to know. My experience is that God will show me things that I need and makes me more respective to the teaching when I do pray.

this message to me surely indicates my need to cast all my cares upon the lordfaith in God is no believing that God can its knowing that God will this scripture helps me to realise that the weaker we are the more we need to lean on God and the more we lean God the more we discover Gods great strength every one faces storm but our ability to look unto the lord causes us to succed we have to know that STORM means Something That Only Remains Momentarily

This passage shows me that even as children of God we will fall and its through his word , through him we are able to get up and gain strength to go back on the course that he has set out for us.It is only through knowing his word and understanding it that we can stay on track. It is therefore essential to ask God for understanding, and to show us what he wants us to do, paraphrasing, David also says: I will do whatever you want me to do, just give me a willing heart to do them. This is so powerful because it shows me that as we read God's word and gain insight through the Holy Spirit we still have to ask God to reveal his word to us continually and to make us willing to obey it.
