“Give me understanding [a teachable heart and the ability to learn], that I may keep Your law; And observe it with all my heart.” (Psalms 119: 34, Amplified Bible)
To be true to God’s law of Love and of Life requires more than blind faith. If we are to sustain our devotion and act from the heart, honestly, in the good that we think and do, we need also understanding.
As we come to know Who God is and who we are to Him, our consecration and loyalty are heightened and powerful. The infinitude of God may not be fully comprehensible to the human mind, but essential aspects are revealed daily, taught to us for our demonstration in life, as we are ready for them.
It isn’t about already knowing everything or even about fully believing, without a single doubt, in that Spirit of God. It is about the “teachable heart and ability to learn” that the psalmist prays for here. It is about being receptive, eager to be instructed, to be fed with ideas and inspirations that clarify God and His Law. It is about humbly listening and gratefully, patiently, letting God progressively teach us His Word of Life and of Love.
