Over the summer I came upon Psalm 143:10, “Teach me to do you will, for you are my God; may your good spirit lead me on level ground.” I had been struggling to accept God’s will as my own. I didn’t know how. I needed Him to change me. This verse was perfect. I had no idea that I could ask the Lord to “teach me” His will! What a wonderful and powerful thing! I love how God KNOWS my heart. He has prepared this verse for me (and you).
Praying this verse has become a habit for me because I no longer desire my will, but His. I know His will for my life is perfect, whether that means I go through hardship or happy days, He knows what is best for me and what will bring Him the most glory. I am thankful to have a King who knows what is best for me. I am thankful for times of hardship, times of weeping, times of sadness, because ultimately He knows that will bring me closer to Him than anything else. My Savior knows what is best for me. I am thankful for that this morning. I am trusting in Him today.
