Teach Me Your Way

John Danganan


“Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.” - Psalm 86:11


David opens this chapter by confessing of his spiritual poverty and need for God’s guidance. He continues to rely on God’s leading in v. 11 by asking God to teach him His ways. Why God’s ways not David’s own ways? Proverbs 14:12 answers that, “there is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” We can be whole hearted and sincere in our ways yet be sincerely wrong leading to death. David continues by stating the purpose of his request i.e. that he may live and walk in God’s truth. He then asks God to unite his heart to fear God’s name. The irony of David being a man after God’s own heart is that even his heart is divided. Our hearts are divided by doubt, fear, anxiety, selfishness.


Every hour I need God. I need his guidance and direction so that I can live in the reality of truth. Confess that my heart gets divided and fragmented by doubt and fear and ask God to unite it in order to fear the living God.


Heavenly Father,
I love you. May I always recognize my need for you so that not even an hour passes without acknowledging how dependent I am of your sovereignty. As the leader of my home and your church I need you to teach me your way and walk in your truth. Give me courage to walk out in your truth. I repent from a divided heart of doubt, fear and anxiety. Unite my heart of faith, confidence and resolve. I love you. Maranatha.
