Psalms 86-90

Psalms 86-90 reveal God as our teacher, among many other wonderful roles in our lives.

And on the flip side, I am reminded that as a Christ follower, I am always a student with room to grow my faith and refresh my soul.  There is always something more for me to know, grasp, and understand in Christ.

It's my job to nurture that.

Because God is faithful and His love so great, we can look forward to whatever and however God teaches us.  

Teach me your way, Lord,
    that I may rely on your faithfulness;
give me an undivided heart,
    that I may fear your name.

And as we open our hearts to God, our hearts and minds change for the better.  Though we are not perfect, we are transformed in amazing ways to be more and more like Christ.

And guess what?

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
    who walk in the light of your presence, Lord.

From the moment we let God be our teacher, when we learn from Him, we can expect a lifetime of beautiful unexpected, unpredictable, perfect surprises!

A prayer for today-

Dear God,

Thank You for being my teacher.  Thank You for all the ways You bless me as I learn from You.

Forgive me for all the times I assume I know what I am doing and rely on my imperfect and selfish thinking.

In all I do and say, Lord, teach me Your way, that I may rely on Your faithfulness and not my own.  Give me an undivided heart that I may glorify You.

I pray for the light of your presence to fill the lives of _________________ with joy and peace that cannot be shaken.  Help me shine Your light their way.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Peace and blessings,
