Two part learning

Psalm 118(119):1,27,30,34-35,44

Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
They are happy whose life is blameless,
who follow God’s law!

Make me grasp the way of your precepts
and I will muse on your wonders.
Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
I have chosen the way of truth
with your decrees before me.
Train me to observe your law,
to keep it with my heart.
Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
Guide me in the path of your commands;
for there is my delight.
I shall always keep your law
for ever and ever.
Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.

Scripture: The words that spoke to me today are
Train me to observe your law,
to keep it with my heart.

Observation: Two part learning

A willingness to learn, to receive Gods teaching through his laws and to then have them reside within my heart is the complete action that makes permanent and deep change. It’s one thing to hear something and know it, its another thing to put it in to action and make the learning complete. It actually means nothing if I don’t do the follow up action of having it in my heart, it just becomes another bunch of words that I hear.

Application:

I always try to follow up what Jesus wants me to as a result of hearing his words and messages for me each day. To be honest, for one reason or another I don’t always get to do the application. There is no excuse for me not to do it, not enough time is no excuse as I can always make time. To busy is not an excuse as I can always make time. To distracted is not an excuse as I can always make time. So there it is, as I write these words the application comes loud and clear, make some time to follow up and put my learning in to action. Today is busy, really busy, so this will test my determination to make some time for Jesus.

Prayer:

Lord,
Being with you is not hard, its the best thing that I can do.
Prompt and remind me if I become distracted to come back to you.
I my heart not just my mind is where is seek you presence.
I make a permanent home for you within me.
Amen
