HAVING A DESIRE TO LEARN
Not many have a desire to learn, especially after twelve to sixteen years of formal schooling. The idea of learning on a continual basis is not our favorite thought. But if learning carries with it a personal relationship with the God and Creator of my mind and body, that should completely change my appetite and desire for learning and understanding. Here are a few verses from Job and David who realized the value of learning from God.
“Teach me, and I will be silent; make me understand how I have gone astray” (Job 6:24).
“Make me to know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I wait all the day long” (Psalm 25:4–5).
“Behold, You delight in truth in the inward being, and You teach me wisdom in the secret heart” (Psalm 51:6).
“Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear your name” (Psalm 86:11).
“Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments” (Psalm 119:66).
“Teach me to do Your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!” (Psalm 143:10).
The heart of a learner is one that God will gladly teach in the relationship with Him. The relationship becomes more precious when we learn from Him. God then pours more understanding and grace into us as we learn.
