Daily Reading – Day 4 Psalm 119:17-24

Hebrew Letter – Gimel

The 3rd letter of the aleph-bet teaches us about reward and punishment. In Hebrew it means both the giving of reward as well as the giving of punishment – implying that man is free to choose between good and evil.

The Abundant Life

We all want to be happy. The United States Constitution guarantees its citizens the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Yet, no one person or nation can provide you with the freedom that life in the Spirit brings, especially as you pursue God’s will and destiny for your life.

Psalm 119:17-17-24

17 Be good to your servant while I live,
    that I may obey your word.
18 Open my eyes that I may see
    wonderful things in your law.
19 I am a stranger on earth;
    do not hide your commands from me.
20 My soul is consumed with longing
    for your laws at all times.
21 You rebuke the arrogant, who are accursed,
    those who stray from your commands.
22 Remove from me their scorn and contempt,
    for I keep your statutes.
23 Though rulers sit together and slander me,
    your servant will meditate on your decrees.
24 Your statutes are my delight;
    they are my counselors.

In His Service,

Min. A. Francine Green
