Daily Reading – Day 2 Psalm 119:9-16

Hebrew Alphabet – Bet represents house or household. We are part of the family of God blessed with every spiritual blessing.

Beth

How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
    By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, Lord;
    teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I recount
    all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes
    as one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts
    and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees;
    I will not neglect your word.

When I think about this block of scripture, my thoughts turn to Psalm 84 verses 1, 10-11:

v.1 “How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.”

v. 10-11 “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”

It is an honor to be carriers of God’s glory, Being in His presence quells or suppresses all of the fear and anxiety the enemy would try to burden you with. To be a doorkeeper in the courts of the is a place of deep humility.

In His Service
