Psalm 143:10-Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
This psalm of David is a cry for help. In the midst of whatever it is that David is going through, He has sense enough to seek the will of God.
As we all do, David had struggles too. But, in the midst of them, his goal was to do God's will for his life, therefore He ask God to teach him how to live his life doing God's will for his life.
Not only does David ask God for instructions to live his life according to God's will for him, but He declares God to be his God when he says "for you are my God." David here pledges allegiance to God alone as his God.
David wanted to do in his life what God wanted to do through his life. It was his desire to live his life according to the will of God and not according to the will of David.
What about you? Do you want to live your life according to the will of God for your life? Are you currently living your life under the will of God for your life? If not, is the will of God your desire in life?
In David's petition to God to help him stay in God's will for his life, David knew that if he was in God's will for his life, He would be out of the way and not mess up what God was trying to do in and through him.
There is a song that Jessica King sings that is titled "Keep me in your will."
It is only in the Lord's will for our lives that we are able to do accomplish God's will, purpose and His mission for our lives.
Believe it or not young people and old alike, the greatest aspiration in life is to be in and to do the will of God for your life with God's leading.
Where do you stand on today? Are you living your life according to your will or the will of God? David's prayer was for God's spirit to lead him on the right path for his life, which is the path that God has already preordained for us to walk on.
If you are not living your life according to the will of God for your life, my prayer for you on today is that you too will seek and ask God to teach you how to live out His will for your life because you too makes a declaration on today that He is your God and you not only want to, but are willing to walk in the path that He wants to lead you on.
When we have made up our mind to live according to God's will for our lives, we then will know that we won't be in God's way.
When we are where God puts us and not where we want to be, we know without a doubt that we are indeed in the will of God for our lives.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for being a light unto your feet and a lamp unto your path.
