Psalm 119 is a Psalm of ascent
Psalm 119 uses the Hebraic alphabet in ascension from self-awareness to God-awareness at the end. Lana Vawser had a conference on this Psalm with several Bible teachers and prophets expounding on the subject. Gary Beaton and Kevin Vawser had some really eye-opening teaching on this wonderful Psalm.
Gary showed us that the alphabet had been used to head each section. Kevin showed us the tone of the psalmist’s heart from the beginning “I will” statements to the “You are” recognitions at the end.
As we read this wonderful chapter, we can do the same walk with God that David did. We can recognize our accomplishments are small in comparison to the greatness of God. We can repent, and humble ourselves, our thought, and our actions to the Lord’s ways. We can grow as we study His ways.
