"Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands." Psalm 119:73
I am at school again for another class. I love education. I love learning, especially learning more about the Lord. However, I don't want to just learn more information about the Lord; I want understanding that only comes from Him. I want to learn His commands more clearly. Only the understanding that comes through the power of the Holy Spirit can help us attain true knowledge and wisdom. Why do we need His understanding? Why do we need to keep learning His commands? 1 John 1:3-6 says, "We know that we have come to know Him if we keep His commands. Whoever says, 'I know Him,' but does not do what He commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys His Word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in Him: Whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did." That is why want understanding. I want to learn His commands. I want to live as Jesus lived.
