Psalm 111:10 NKJV
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.
Psalm 119:34 NKJV
Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
One of the ways we can tell that we are growing in understanding is to observe how well we follow God’s instructions. The psalmist here says that those who do the commandments of God have good understanding. That makes sense. We exhibit a lack of understanding when we go contrary to what God has said. That’s why Psalm 119 included a prayer, “Give me understanding, and I shall keep your law.” May the Holy Spirit continue to teach and guide us into understanding more and more. That will result in our walking in obedience to what the Lord commands.
