This week, I’m trying to memorize Psalm 86:11-12. Won’t you join me? Or leave a comment to let me know what you’re memorizing. (I may want to memorize that next!)
“Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.” –Psalm 86:11-12NRSV
Notice that the Psalmist makes two requests, yet longs to do four things. He asks God to:
- teach him His way and
- give him an undivided heart.
He wants to:
- walk in God’s Truth,
- revere God’s name,
- give thanks to God, and
- glorify His name forever.
Lord, the Psalmist longed to live fully for you. Please give us everything we need to do so, too. You are worthy, Lord, of all we have to give—our undivided and grateful hearts most of all. Thank You for teaching and providing, so we may walk with, revere, give thanks to, and glorify You alone, forever and ever! Amen.
