Teach. Guide.

"Teach me how to do Your will, for You are my God. Allow Your good Spirit to guide me on level ground, to guide me along Your path." Psalm 143:10 (VOICE)

As I read this verse this morning, here are some things that stood out to me. 

"Teach me". Do I have a  teachable spirit? Do I want to learn God's will? If He truly is "my God", then I should have the desire to know Him and His will for me. 

"Guide me". God will and does guide. But am I listening and following? If you've ever been on a tour or hike with a guide, they usually remind you often, "Stay with the group. Do not wander off by yourself." Am I more prone to wander off and pick a path of my choosing? When I do pick my path, am I willing to STOP and turn around and return to the path God has designed for me? 

If I really want to be taught and learn about Who God is, and accomplish His plan for my life, than I need to first be teachable, then I need to be willing to be led.
