Today's reading: Psalm 119:113-120 (Samekh)
In Psalm 119:113-120 (Samekh), the psalmist is under attack and is speaking out against those who are acting sinfully and wrongly toward him. So as he talks with God, he compares himself to this group by repeatedly confirming his love of God and His Word. In verse 114 he claims God as his shield and strength and then calls upon God to "Uphold me according to your promise, that I may live" (vs. 116) and to "hold me up, that I may be safe..." (vs. 117).
What's one example of how God's Word has sustained you when you've come under attack, encountered difficulty or experienced loss? How does telling God that you love Him and that you're grateful for His Word benefit and help you? Tami
