Psa 119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge
Most of our prayers circle around “give me”, most of David’s prayers were “teach me” (Psa 25:4, Psa 119:68, Psa 143:10). “Give me” is not as profitable and beneficial as “teach me”. David embraced teachings and with wisdom (good judgement and knowledge) he put them to work for profit and gain. The chief end is the glory to the Teacher who imparted knowledge to him. Jesus taught His disciples to carry on with His work. He called them, provided for them for some time, shielded them from dangers for a while and taught them to profit in every area. They advanced God’s kingdom by His Spirit.
Jobs, money, skills, spouses etc are not falling from heaven, God has already provided, we just need to be taught by His word to tap into His provisions. It is true of this proverb “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Pro 24:3-6 “3 By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; 4 by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. 5 A wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might, 6 for by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory.“
