Psalm 119 - AYIN (Hebrew Alphabet)

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayPsalm119AYIN_zpsx1dnwn0j.jpg
AYIN - Psalm 119: 121-128

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 sixteenth letter
AYIN.
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.

AYIN - I Am Your servant Lord, gIve me discerNment

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayPsalm119AYIN2_zpsyy9d2qhg.jpg


We are going to begin our Bible Study today by defining two words:
discernment and servanthood

Discernment - the ability to judge well, the quality of being able to grasp and comprehend what is obscure.  Insight, perception, wisdom.

Servanthood (Biblical definition) - Serving and worshiping God, as well as serving others in love.  Not serving out of requirement but rather serving voluntarily because God loved us first and His love lives in us through the Holy Spirit.

The word "servant" is referenced three times in these featured verses (122, 124 & 125)
Ensure your servant's well-being (verse 122)
Deal with your servant according to your love (verse 124)
I am your servant (verse 125)


There is also a section where the author seems to be frustrated and even pleas with God:
do not leave me to my oppressors (verse 121)

Let not the arrogant oppress me (verse 122)

Your law is being broken (verse 126)


Oppression - prolonged, cruel or unjust treatment or control.  Mental pressure or distress.

When our enemies treat us horribly, try responding with God's Love and see what happens! - God will melt their cruelty.

Beautiful Bittersweet & Thanksgiving Fun

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo unnamed_zpsjfdieo5u.jpg

Beautiful Bittersweet & Thanksgiving Fun

I used to decorate with bittersweet for Thanksgiving but then I found out how poisonous it is to cats and dogs.  Instead of bringing these berries indoor I will just have to enjoy them through photography.  I used to find bittersweet growing wild in the woods but this beauty grows at the back of my property.
Below these pictures you will find some previous Thanksgiving posts.
