“Teach me to do thy will: for thou art my God: thy Spirit is good: lead me into the land of uprightness.” 
Psalm 143:10

David said “teach me to do your will; for thou art my God…” This is the heart of David’s great success in life. Even when he was facing adversity still he wanted more than anything, to do what God wanted him to do. We can choose to be like Saul who was removed from the throne because he wouldn’t do what God wanted him to do; or we can be like David, a man who had a heart for God who wanted to do everything God wanted him to do. That one decision will make all the difference in our life on earth and in the life to come.

When God promises you something and it does not happen right away, it’s easy to get impatient and start doubting Him; God doesn’t give us greater challenges in our lives because He wants to discourage us but rather, because He wants to bless us and to give us greater opportunity to grow. Adversity should make us thirsty for God, getting out of our  comfort zones every once in a while will make us search for God and His will. Our questions should be “What can I learn from God in my adversity?” “Do I have a teachable spirit? Will I quench my thirst in God, or in the alternative the world gives like pleasure or materialism or popularity?”

Sure David was searching for answers in the midst of his heartache but more than anything he was searching for God. God does not want us to just search for answers, He wans  us to search for Him. If the trials and questions of life have brought you to the place that you want to know God more then you are in the right place.

Life is not all about success and winning and living free from pain, real life is about right rela- tionships and the most important relationship of all is our relationship to God.
