Psalm 119 Meditation on Gimmel

Psa 119:17 Gimel. Deal bountifully with Your servant, That I may live and keep Your word. Psa 119:18 Open my eyes, that I may behold Wonderful things from Your law. Psa 119:19 I am a stranger in the earth; Do not hide Your commandments from me. Psa 119:20 My soul is crushed with longing After Your ordinances at all times. Psa 119:21 You rebuke the arrogant, the cursed, Who wander from Your commandments. Psa 119:22 Take away reproach and contempt from me, For I observe Your testimonies. Psa 119:23 Even though princes sit and talk against me, Your servant meditates on Your statutes. Psa 119:24 Your testimonies also are my delight; They are my counselors. LORD of goodness, greatness, and grace; provide for me an abundance of faith, love, and hope that I may then develop a lifestyle that honors YOUR WORD. Open my heart and mind to see in YOUR WORD transforming truths that will make me be awestruck about YOUR character, competence, and compassion. Give me a hunger and thirst for YOUR WORD and feel an inner pressure to read and study the scriptures. Take from me an inner sense of condemnation and contempt for myself as I strive to respond in faith to YOUR revelation. Even when others speak evil against me, gossip, and even authorities in my life slander me; Let me focus and remind myself of YOUR ways. Let YOUR word keep me sane, stable, and spiritual during the hardest times of my life. Give me a delight in YOUR WORD and let me get from YOUR WORD the wisdom I need to live life. Amen
