Then I Will Teach

This meditation is the last of a three part series on Psalm 51. In Mindful Worship Meditation #21 - Have Mercy on Me, O God, we examined the first 6 verses as David laments over his sin of committing adultery with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband Uriah, and asks God to forgive him. In Mindful Worship Meditation #22 - Create in Me a Pure Heart, we contemplated verses 7 through 12 where David asks God to clean him, renew him, and restore him. In this mediation we see David's response to God's grace. He begins by saying, Then I Will Teach.

When I originally began to write the first meditation in this series, I was only going to do a few particular verses from this Psalm. As I meditated on it in my own life though, I realized that every line holds life-changing truth that needs to be seriously contemplated. A single meditation would probably be more than an hour long though, so I decided to present it in a three-part series. This is the last of those three parts. I am now planning to do more series type meditations that will build and elaborate on each other and allow us to go deeper into the study and personal application of God’s Word. Let me know what you think in the comments. (Photo by Anna Gay. Original on flickr. Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 2.0 Generic License)

    thank you so much for all your amazing meditations, i have become closer to the lord, and my relationship continues to grow, your meditations help me quiet my mind so i can hear the lord. Have you considered doing something around the issue of doubt and fear, or maybe courage and hope.
    once again thank you and god bless.
