Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness. – Ps 143:10

Knowing God’s will and doing God’s will are two different things. King David admitted that he was good at knowing God’s will, but not so good at getting it done. Doing God’s will doesn’t always come naturally. So what can we do?

Scripture calls God’s Holy Spirit our Helper, Teacher and Guide (Jn 14:26). Whenever we need guidance, He is there. We can ask God about His will, and He will speak to us with His still, small voice.

David knew he came up short in obeying God’s commands; yet instead of throwing up his hands and becoming frustrated, he asked God for help! God will teach you to walk in His ways. All you have to do is ask.

Prayer:

Father, teach me how to walk in Your will. I know I’m not always the best at learning Your will and getting it done; but I want to get better. Help me, in Jesus’ name!
