Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name forevermore.
Asking for directions is not always the natural inclination of the heart, sometimes we are prone to wander. Like an over caffeinated squirrel with ADD we make our way through life jumping from one point of interest to another, never really anticipating our destination. The Psalmist here wants to learn something important, God's way. Now it would seem unimportant to know God's way if you didn't plan on walking in it, but I have a question; how many are the things I have found myself learning that I never intend on using? We all go through ambitious stages in our lives where we think oh wouldn't it be cool to learn "guitar" for instance. The problem is we want to be able to play a few songs the first moment we pick it up - the learning part is not what we really want to do; it's tedious, frustrating, boring, and painful in the learning stage. Let's face learning is not always easy and I think that's one reason we struggle with the process (learning is a process). Another reason we struggle with learning is distraction. Distraction is the enemies plan to keep us from attaining our attraction. The saddest thing about being distracted is that the things that distract us tend to fill our time and steal away from what is our real attraction. Like junk food, it will fill you but it doesn't nourish you, so when it comes time for the real deal you're not really as hungry as you ought to be so you miss out on the best stuff. "Unite my heart to fear Your name" - It seems that the Psalmist even in a world that had far less distractions to contend with than ours, needed the Lord's help to get his heart unified on the matter of reverencing the name of the LORD. Seems a little silly after reading this to think you and I could conquer the task without asking for help from the Lord in this matter. What I like about these verses is the Psalmist has a plan for what he will do - he will walk in the way he has learned - he will praise God with all his heart - and he glorify Him forevermore. Oh that we as a people of these United States would remove the distractions from our lives and worship our LORD as we should - with a hunger not satisfied by the things of this world - and a commitment to learn His ways. If we ever do a revival the likes the world has not known will roll over us like a tidal wave and crush us in His magnificent glory. I pray we may know that day and very soon. AMEN
