God, Our Teacher


GOD, Our Teacher
Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. (Psalm 86:11) • Enséñame, oh Señor, tu camino; caminaré yo en tu verdad; Afirma mi corazón para que tema tu nombre. (Salmo 86:11) • 耶和華啊,求你將你的道指教我,我要照你的真理行;求你使我專心敬畏你的名。(詩篇 86:11) #FearOfTheLord #MyPrayer

‘Yarah’ throw, shoot. In the simple Qal form … means “to throw, to cast” (cf.
the shooting of arrows, 1 Sam. 20 :36). But in the causative Hiphil, the verb means “to direct, to point the way” (cf. the throwing out of one’s finger to point the way, Gen. 46:28, ASV). Teaching or educating is a matter of guiding, directing, pointing the way.

My prayer:
I see You as an Archer and I am as a bow in Your hands. Teach me Your way. Point me in the direction of Your way; throw me, shoot me where You will with all precision and force.

I see You as my Rabbi, patiently teaching and bringing light.
The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. Psalm 119:130 May Your words have entrance in me, may they fall on good ground, take root.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105
God is exalted in his power. Who is a teacher like him? Job 36:22

I see You as my Guide. Teach me thy way, Jehovah, and lead me in an even path, because of mine enemies. Psalm 27:11
Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:4,5
Instruct me, guide me, teach me, and my heart will respond accordingly; I will walk in Your truth.

May your grace, oh God, teach me to say “no” to ungodliness and “yes” to You. Titus 2:12
