I love the Scripture which reads, “Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path…” Psalm 27:11
Here the psalmist David is asking God to teach him His way and make his way plain.
The word, way, in the original Greek means road, way, path, journey, direction and course of life.
The word, plain, means level place and uprightness.
The word, path, means road, way, path and way of living.
Though David wasn’t the most perfect person in the world…he slept with one of his soldier’s wives then had him killed among other things (2 Samuel 11) God still honored the prayers of David because he was always quick to repent, had a heart for God and a teachable spirit (1 Samuel 13:14).
He sincerely cried out to God while asking Him to teach him His way.
He realized his own way wasn’t working and that he needed some help.
As believers and as virtuous women of God it’s important in our own lives that we remember to ask God to teach us His way every step of the way.
Sometimes we can get so caught up in doing things our own way, or wanting our own way or just feeling as if God is taking too long so we may as well do it ourselves that we miss God when we operate in fear instead of faith.
Instead we must remember to continue to stand in faith while trusting God and asking Him to teach us His way along the way instead of doing it our own way.
In life and with every thing, God’s way is always the best way.
Though we may not understand it with our natural minds at first, God’s way toward righteousness and uprightness always leads to victory, joy, peace and all of the many blessings He has in store.
So today, ask God to teach you His way.
He’ll show you the way, as long as you take time out to seek Him for it.
“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
