Teach me your decrees, O Lord;I will keep them to the end.Give me understanding and I will obey your instructions; I will put them into practice with all my heart. Make me walk along the path of your commands,for that is where my happiness is found.
— Psalm 119:33-35 NLT
Lord, so much of the Bible seems hard and confusing, and that has made me put it down and become discouraged. Now I ask You to forgive me for that bad decision. Create in me a fresh desire for Your Word, and an understanding far beyond what I knew before. Teach me and guide me as I read and study. I know now that true happiness is found in Your instructions, and I want to dive into a deeper relationship with You from now on. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
