Join the suffering of the psalmist with yours and others. Each verse with its rhythm and variation on the single theme of God’s self-communication brings comfort to the heart. God gently shares with us who God is in the gentle presence of the flow of the Word. The Holy Spirit is your beloved friend who strokes the forehead of your soul with these words. The Holy Spirit is the Comforter.
The fourth word for our Wednesday meditations is ‘edah, translated as “decrees” or “testimonies.” It is a legal term, also meaning “witness.” The root ‘uwd means, “to go around” or “repeat.” Consistent, repetitious true witness wins the case for the defendant.
Repeat the word ‘edah throughout the day as you receive the wonders of creation as witnesses of the beauty and love of the Creator.
Your steadfast love my comfort v. 76
Languishing for salvation v. 81
Save us from persecution. v. 86
Keeping decrees of Your mouth v. 88
