Qualities of a person righteous in the Lord are uplifted along with the blessings that flow from true surrender to God’s power. Examine your heart. How does your life measure up to the virtues celebrated in this psalm?

Once again, the acrostic style of this psalm suggests that we be as creative as the psalmist is. After you pray the psalm, ask the Holy Spirit to bring to your mind those qualities that you need in order to live more fully according to the Lord’s ways. Take the letters of the alphabet and allow a list from A to Z to well up from within as you pray to respond more fully to the call of the Lord upon your life.

A key word in Hebrew that you could use for “c” is chafets. It means “to delight” in the Lord’s ways. Do you find that your spirit truly enjoys growing in the command of Christ Jesus that we love one another?
