2020 - Day 16: Teach Me

Updated: Jan 21, 2020

I'm sure all of us had a favorite teacher. That special person who took the time necessary to ensure you understood the material and challenged you to do your very best.

David has been through many trials. A bear, a lion, a giant, captured by the Philistines and faced many enemies within his own house – including his own son. Through all of these experiences, he has learned valuable lessons, perfected his gifts, and developed a closer relationship with God.

Yet, although he has gleaned so much, he desires to learn more. David cries out to be delivered in the way of uprightness. He doesn’t want to act in a way that is evil, even though his enemies are doing so. He desires to honor God in every situation.

Only those who desire to learn from God, can avoid the tendency to act like their enemies. If we are not in close contact and fellowship with God, when we are smitten we will strike back in like manner. When Jesus said to turn the other cheek, he wasn’t talking about passivity. He was teaching us to know God’s path in each situation. We must have Him lead us in our responses. There are times for one to protect himself. But, there are times when God will lead us in a different path – one that honors Him. If we are not talking to Him regularly and properly we will not know how to react. David desires to honor God in this situation.

Today is a good day to take some time and sit before the Great Teacher, so He can inform you, inspire you, and educate you in how to handle every situation with finesse and grace, that will give Him glory in all you do.
