Intimate Instruction ~ Show me....

Psalm 25:4-5: Show me Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day.

·         Show me Your ways:  Revelation, each time we open the scripture we need to be looking for Jesus. All inductive type Bible study programs (IBS) call this the observation stage

·         In the Word: daily, systematically, and come hungry, not doubting.

·         Earnest seeking Matthew 6:33: But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

o   What did God show you today?
o   Word is like manna, you cannot live off yesterday’s manna.
§  Remember in the desert the extra collected quickly rotted and grew worms.
§  You have to collect it fresh every day.

o   Psalm 143:8: Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.

o   Deuteronomy 29:29: The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law

§  Psalm 25:14: The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.
§  Proverbs 3:32: … His secret counsel is with the upright
§  Proverbs 25:2: It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
§  Lest you think this doesn’t apply to you, the scripture declares we are kings and priests for our God. We are his Royal priesthood and will rule and reign with Him.
