A Teachable Heart

Psalm 143:10

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:10       

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God.  May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.       

God loves us so much that He gave us commands to obey that will lead us towards His goodness and mercy and away from a path that leads to destruction. If left to our own devices, we would stumble and fall into a life of sin. But God had mercy on us and sent the Holy Spirit to guide us onto the straight and narrow path that leads to God. In order to be led by the Holy Spirit, we must have a teachable heart, which goes hand in hand with humility. We must have a willingness to learn and to receive instruction, which sometimes comes in the form of correction. Trust in the guidance of the Holy Spirit and you will never be led astray.

Understanding God’s Word

Psalm 119 130 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:130

The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

If you read the Holy Bible in faith, studying the truth, asking God to give you understanding of what was, what is and what is to come – the Lord, by his grace, will enlighten your mind and soul. He will help you understand the scriptures, His plan for salvation and He will give you spiritual peace and comfort. God’s word gives understanding to all who earnestly seek Him and are willing to learn.
