Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees,
that I may follow it to the end.[a]
34 Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law
and obey it with all my heart.
35 Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word.[b
I love these verses because it is asking for God.
It really shows how much we can not get understanding from anyone else but God.
I can not live an hour without sinning.
Without wanting something that’s not mine.
Or not honoring my parents.
I can only do these things with God.
I ask you to remember today that you are nothing without God.
And ask God to help you each day to honor him.
I am nothing.
But you are God.
