O God, thou hast taught me from my youth. - Psalms 71:17

The Psalmist was called early, and he ascribes it to divine teaching. None but God can teach us experimentally; and the lessons He teaches are always useful and important.

He teaches all His scholars to know themselves, their depravity, poverty, and slavery. He teaches them His law--its purity, claims and penalty. He teaches them His gospel--its fulness, freeness, and suitability. He teaches them to know Himself: as a reconciled God, as their Father and faithful Friend. His teaching is accompanied with power and authority.

Are we taught of God? We may know divine teaching by its effects, it always produces humility, they sit at His feet: dependance upon Him, abhorrence of sin, love to God as a teacher, obedience to the lessons taught, thirst for further attainments, and brings us daily to Jesus.

Let us earnestly seek divine teaching: it preserves from dangers, sorrows, and snares: and if suitably improved, it brings great glory to God, and honour to the cause of religion. Our God says, "I will teach thee." Lord, teach me, and make me entirely Thine!

Oh, let my heart be wholly Thine,
Thy property alone;
No longer let me think it mine,
Or call myself my own.
