Teach Me, Please

today's reading.
Psalms 119:25-48    My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to your word...

think about it.
When you're in difficulty or sorrow, what gives life and strength (119:25-28)? What does the writer move away from to pursue God's teaching (119:36-39)? What does he gain from the Lord's steadfast love (119:41-42)? How is your view of God's Word reflected in 119:48? What would help you love it more?

the blog.
Teach me your statutes and give me understanding came across loud and clear in Psalm 119:25-48. In fact, the Psalmist presents the Lord with this specific request two separate times in just a few verses. That shows me that as I read and take in His Word, I should be asking for God to help me reflect on it and then respond by living in a manner that pleases Him.

So I'm curious, how often to do you ask for God's help when you read scripture? What's your experience been with asking Him to teach you and give you understanding? Tami W.
