Genesis 13:1-14:24; Job 16:1-17:16; Matthew 8:1-27

Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes. Psalm 119:23

Faced with enemy collusion and verbal persecution, David turned to meditation on God’s Word. In this cacophonous world, it is often difficult to hear the Almighty’s voice. This increases our need to daily resort to the Scriptures for spiritual communion. More than just reading them, we must carefully consider them and prayerfully apply them to our lives. What attitudes need to change? Am I obedient to the Lord’s commands? Believers may safely leave the critics and skeptics to the Lord; He will eventually deal with them. Meanwhile, we must diligently contemplate His Word. —Keith Keyser

Help us to confess Thy name, bear with joy Thy cross and shame;
Only seek to follow Thee, Though reproach our portion be.—J. G. Deck

  1. Wondering how Mr. Keyser knows that Psalm 119 was written by David in yesterday’s Choice Gleanings, 1/10/19? Thank you.

    1. Dear Nancy,

      I contacted Keith to ask him about his meditation. His reply was: My mistake; I should’ve written “the Psalmist.”

      Thank you for your question and we hope you enjoy the rest of the calendar!
