Psalm 119 - ZAYIN (Hebrew Alphabet)

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayPsalm119ZAYIN_zpsziscebm0.jpg
ZAYIN - Psalm 119:49-56

The longest chapter in the Bible is Psalm 119.  If you turn to Psalm 119 in your Bible you will notice that there is a strange word every 8 verses.  These "strange" words are the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.  David wrote this chapter in an acrostic pattern and every letter of the alphabet is followed by 8 verses.  It is a chapter full of praise and worship.  I thought it would be fun to study Psalm 119 by summarizing each alphabetic section in an acrostic format.

I did not know anything about the Hebrew language, so I did a little research.  The Hebrew language is written from the right to the left - opposite of the English language.  There are 22 letters to the Hebrew alphabet.  Today we continue studying with the seventh letter ZAYIN.
I am also NOT a poet, so I had to research what an acrostic pattern meant.
An Acrostic Poem - is a poem where certain letters in each line spell out a word or phrase.
Example below.


ZAYIN - My zeal for you Lord continues day and night, your promise renews my life.

Today, we will begin by defining the word "zeal" 
Zeal - great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective.  Passion, fervor, devotion, enthusiasm, eagerness, keenness and gusto.

Worshiping God should be an all day and all night occurrence.  With such enthusiasm and gusto for the Lord, we should have the desire to follow Him ALL THE TIME!

Do you dream in color?  Or, (it has been said that when you conquer a second language you will dream in that language) - have you ever dreamt in a second language?  The real question is:  Do you dream in God?  Do you wake up in the middle of the night out of a deep sleep yearning for Him and desiring to do His Will?  That's what David was basically saying in the verse below: 

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayPsalm119ZAYIN2_zpsunduvrty.jpg

The eight verses featured today also talk about hardships:

My comfort in my SUFFERING is this (verse 50)
The arrogant MOCK me (verse 51)
INDIGNATION grips me (verse 53)

"The arrogant mock me without restraint, but I do not turn from your law."  Psalm 119:51

I had to refresh my memory on the meaning of indignation:
Indignation - anger or annoyance provoked by what is perceived as unfair treatment

"Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law."  Psalm 119:53

This week, let's strive to be followers of Jesus Christ every second of every day and night!

Worship Wednesdays #17 - WARRIOR

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo WWwarrior_zpsgakakkua.jpg
Worship Wednesdays #17 - WARRIOR
This is the seventeenth post in a series called "Worship Wednesdays".  In this series I will focus on one word, thought or lesson and I will feature a modern Christian song that relates to the focus of the day.
Click HERE to read the post from a couple weeks ago: 
IF YOU'RE FREE, PROVE IT!

Let's begin by defining WORSHIP - the feeling or expression of adoration for a deity.  Adoration, love, devotion, adulation, glorify, exalt, praise.

There are many ways to worship God but in this series it will be through music.

“Seven times a day I praise you.” 

Psalm 119:164
