Life Lessons. July 23 2020
“ Show me Your way O Lord, teach me your paths, lead me in truth, and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation.” Psalm 25:4 KJV
Shortly after coming to know Christ personally I was asked to share my testimony. I started out by saying that I did not have a great testimony. The person who asked me said, “ All of our testimonies are great in God’s eyes and we should be happy o share what God has done in our lives.” His interest taught me a good lesson. Although there were many sources of learning when I was growing up, some of the most important lessons of my life I learned from my parents. On my mother’s knee I learned the importance of being kind and loving even to the undesirables or different children around us. I learned the extreme love we must have for our family and of coarse for our God. Over my Father’s knee I learned that when we do wrong we need to be punished and disciplined just as God lovingly disciplines His children. I learned the value of hard work and a deep love of the Word. From their I learned from my school teachers, heroes, pastors and Sunday School teachers, and even from my peers. But the most important lessons I learned are the ones my Heavenly Father wanted to teach me. King David recognized this as he prayed the verse above. Life is a life long journey of learning. We are never finished learning. That must be our attitude as we as disciples of Jesus go through life. God has deep lessons that He stills wants to teach us even now in my retirement. Charles Spurgeon said, “ It is always of interest when one is privileged to heart personal and intimate account of the revelation ofGod to a human soul.” How true! Our testimonies keep improving as God teaches us knew and wondrous things. Be willing to share that with others.
Because God is good and upright, loving and faithful, He teaches us and guides us. We sense our need for divine help and He willingly teaches us as we seek His face.
🙏Father God teach me Your paths, lead me in to Your truth, and continue to show me Your ways. You have provided me with Your salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ who cleanses me from all unrighteousness. Help me to share with others what You are teaching me.
