How to Better Understand God's Ways

Ever struggled to find God’s will or to understand what God is doing?

If so, you are not alone. This is a challenging pursuit for all believers.

In Psalm 25, we find David, the psalmist, expressing this desire:

"Make me know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths." – Psalm 25:4, NASB

We long to understand God's ways, to walk in His paths, and to align our lives with His will.

But what does it mean to know God's ways?

First and foremost, it's about seeking intimacy with God. Knowing His ways involves a personal relationship – a journey of discovery and growth in understanding Him more deeply. It's about spending time in His presence, studying His Word, and communing with Him in prayer.

As we delve into the Scriptures, we encounter the nature of God revealed through His actions and interactions with humanity. We learn of His faithfulness, justice, mercy, and love. Each revelation illuminates His ways and encourages us to emulate them in our own lives.

But learning more about the ways of God isn't just about head knowledge but heart transformation. It's about allowing His truth to penetrate our hearts and shape our thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors. It's about surrendering our will to His and allowing Him to lead us on paths of righteousness.

In Psalm 25, David acknowledges his inadequacy and dependence on God:

Likewise, we must humble ourselves before God, recognizing that we cannot navigate life's journey on our strength.

I believe God, in His grace, is eager to guide us along the paths of righteousness. He longs to reveal His ways and empower us to walk in them. All we need to do is ask, seek, and wait on Him with expectant hearts.

Let's echo David's prayer today: "Make me know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths."

Let's enjoy the journey of discovery and transformation, confident that as we seek God wholeheartedly, He will faithfully lead us every step of the way.
