Psalms 119:33-40  HE. Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.  (34)  Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.  (35)  Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.  (36)  Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.  (37)  Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.  (38)  Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.  (39)  Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.  (40)  Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

Psalms 119:25-32 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.

Psalms 119:17-24  GIMEL. Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.  (18)  Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.  (19)  I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.  (20)  My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.  (21)  Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.  (22)  Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.  (23)  Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.  (24)  Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.

Psalms 119:9-16  BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.  (10)  With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.  (11)  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.  (12)  Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.  (13)  With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.  (14)  I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.  (15)  I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.  (16)  I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

2 Corinthians 1:17-24  When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?  (18)  But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.  (19)  For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.  (20)  For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.  (21)  Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;  (22)  Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.  (23)  Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.  (24)  Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.

Psalm 105:39-43
He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night. The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river. For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant. And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:

Psalm 105:17-22
He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him. The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

How about this weather?!

          This weather change has been a welcome event!  Nice cool evenings and cold mornings are wonderful after the hot summer months.  The forecast for the day is a high of 55 and a chance of rain this evening.  Yep! Fall has arrived!  I am thankful the way God has designed the seasons for us: Genesis 8:22 ‘While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.’  Seedtime is the spring of the year when the winter is over and the earth warms to receive and germinate the seeds.  During that time there are typically light rains with warm days and cool nights allowing the seeds to come to life.  Harvest is the time when the grains are ready to reap.  The rains are basically over and the temperatures and soil conditions are such that we are able to reap and store the food that has grown to maturity.  Cold is the time of reflection and preparation for the next planting season.  For those who have prepared for the cold can enjoy the season of refreshing! Summer is a time of relaxing and the pursuit of life’s pleasures, so we take vacations and take day trips enjoying the fruits of our life.  Winter…well what can be said: It is a time of sitting around the fire hearing and being heard: Jeremiah speaks of a winter scene for us:  And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.’ Jeremiah 36:23  I look forward to sitting around the fire with my Bible in hand and enjoying the warmth of the fire on a cold day. 

          Oh, yeah, Day and Night: Wow!  Did God know what He was doing?  Considering that He never slumbers or sleeps, {Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4} God knowing what is good for us gave us sweet slumber and sleep!  I don’t need scientific studies to tell me how important the night is!  After a full day of work and play, when the evening comes, God gives us sweet sleep: {It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. Psalm 127:2} 

Yes, God knew what He was doing, but: ‘Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.’ Ecclesiastes 7:29    

Now, if you are reading this and live in an area where the seasons are not well pronounced, you may not be living in God’s Country: You see Jerusalem is His own place and we are on the same plain as Jerusalem: called 30 parallel north.  Giving us the same basic weather as ‘God’s Country’. 

          Well, now you know!
