God’s Best Teaching – Samuel Dhinakaran
“I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you”. Isaiah 48:17
My friend today is a new day to shine for the Lord! He is promising you from Isaiah 48:17, “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you”. Accordingly, the Lord will teach you His ways and will make you shine the brightest for His glory.
The Bible calls one of the attributes of Jesus to be a ‘Counsellor’. When the Lord Jesus was on this earth, people called Him a teacher because He was revealing heaven’s truths to them. In the same manner, the Lord will teach you and lead you into all truth in your life. Firstly, the Lord is going to teach you what is best for your body as in what to eat and what to do to keep your body fit for the Lord. Just think about it! What if you neglect your health and your body is weak, you will not be able to move around for the Lord. There are some people who pray earnestly for God to remove their sugar problem. But as soon as they say ‘amen’ two sweets will go into their mouth. My friend, it is no use praying when we are not taking care of our bodies. Therefore, the Lord is going to lead you on how to take care of your body to make you stay strong for Him.
Secondly, the Lord is going to teach you what is best for your mind. He will remove the negative effect of all the words of people that are harmful and hurtful to you. He will remove every restlessness from your mind and will teach you to be hopeful in Him and in peace. And finally, the Lord will teach you so beautifully to make the right decisions in life. Every decision has a big impact on our life. I always fast and pray saying, “Lord, let me hear your correct voice for me.” Fasting dulls your own voice and makes you hear God’s voice. The Lord’s voice will help you move away from the wrong direction by indicating that it will cause you harm. He will also teach you how to rectify and be on track again. You will thus be in tune with the Greatest Teacher. Receive this grace today and be blessed!
Loving Lord, thank You for speaking to me through Your Word. Lord, You are the greatest Teacher in this world. Lord, I want to keep on hearing Your voice. Grant me the grace to listen to Your voice and obey. Help me to submit myself more to You in order to listen to Your voice more. Lord, even now, I submit my body, my mind and all my decisions to You. I need Your guidance. I want to do Your will alone, Father. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
