Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes, and I shall keep it to the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it. – Ps 119:33-35
We simply cannot do what God has called us to do without asking for His help. He must teach us the way of His statutes (v 33). He must give us understanding (v 34). We cannot make ourselves walk in the path He has for us (v 35); but He can enable us live out our destiny.
Don’t try to live out God’s best for your life alone. The Holy Spirit will guide you every step of the way. And at the end of your life, you will look back and say, thank You, Lord, for everything.
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. – Jn 16:13
Father, thank You for helping me to do the impossible! I am so grateful I don’t have to do Your work alone. Thank You for Your Holy Spirit, who always strengthens me in Jesus’ name.
