Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 119:25-32. This portion of Scripture in Psalm 119 starts with the Hebrew letter DALETH, which is the fourth letter in the Hebrew alphabet and represents the number 4. It also represents the letter D and means doorway. Hebrew letters not only represent a letter, they represent a word, and a number.
The Psalmist admits that his soul clings to this earth, but asks God to restore him to God’s Word. He declares his ways and asks God to teach him the statutes of God. He wants to understand God’s precepts, so he can talk of His wondrous works.
The Psalmist says his soul melts with heaviness and asks God to strengthen him with God’s Word. He requests of God to take the habit of lying away from him and help him to walk in the truth of God’s Word. He has studied the laws of God and wants to walk in the light of them. He asks God to enlarge his heart so he can run in the way of God’s commandments.
Have you ever had a habit that you knew was against the will of God? The Psalmist had a habit of lying. We should take his example and when we know we are doing something against God’s will in our lives ask Him to forgive us and help us to walk in His way.
Daily Bible Reading:
25 DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.
26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.
27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.
30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.
31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.
32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.
Things to Think About:
- Do you desire to understand God’s precepts?
- Do you like to talk about the wondrous works of God?
- Have you ever had a problem with lying as the Psalmist did?
- Do you choose the way of truth?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 119, where the Psalmist reminds us to walk in the truth of Your word. Help us to desire to know and live in the truth. Keep us from choosing the way of lying. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
