God’s Promise to Teach Us


bible-by-candlelight

Good and upright is the LORD;
Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
The humble He guides in justice,
And the humble He teaches His way.
All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth,
To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

Psalm 25:8-10

Who is the man that fears the LORD?
Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
He himself shall dwell in prosperity,
And his descendants shall inherit the earth.
The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him,
And He will show them His covenant.

Psalm 25:12-14

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.

The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom,
And before honour is humility.

God Promises Wisdom

And knowledge to those who have understanding.
He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.

Daniel 2:20-22

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption
