Our Lean

Today's reading: Psalm 119:33-40 (He)

After asking God to teach him, give him understanding and lead him according to God's Word, the psalmist then makes this specific request:

"Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain! (vs. 36)"

So in addition to asking God to give him knowledge, he's asking God to continue to generate in him the desire to fully engage with, know and then follow God's laws. This request is a good one because it recognizes our susceptibility to being pulled towards worldly things and self-focused thinking.

How would you describe your relationship with the Bible? In other words, are you drawn to opening God's Word, or does reading your Bible feel more like a chore? Do you regularly read the Bible, or are you more "hit and miss" about taking in God's Word? What personal changes would asking God to "incline your heart to His Word" bring about for you going forward? Will you join me in making this request part of your prayers? Tami

Daily time in the Word is more than a routine for me, it's a desire and a need.
