Teach me to do Thy will. Psalm 143: 10
Every day we pray Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done. Our prayers are constant invitations to the Lord to manifest in our lives. God’s presence in our lives constitutes God’s Kingdom and Will. So, it is simply living with Christ every moment of our lives that makes Kingdom real and Will practical.
No matter though how practical God’s will for us is, still we need God to teach us to do it. No matter how learned or what all degrees we can add to the end of our names, we are still children who need step by step guide to put our lives together. What it ultimately boils down to is our helplessness in this world to do what God wants of us to do, without God himself helping us to do it. Like it or not, we have to be co-dependant! God needs us as well to make things happen and we need God to learn how to do things in this life.
Now that sounds like a family! Yes, it is becoming a family with God that makes all the difference in the world. For only God can teach us the wisdom of the age and God can teach us the changes of the new world. Only God can teach us to do His will without conflict with the past, present or future. Teach me O Lord, for you have the wisdom and knowledge what I can’t find around. Teach me to do your will
