Psalm 118:19-20 and Trees and a Path Covered with Snow, Hitchcock Nature Center, Iowa.
“Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the LORD. This is the gate of the LORD; The righteous will enter through it.” Psalm 118:19-20
Enter His Righteousness
Psalm 118 gives thank to God for His saving grace. Our righteousness comes from God. It’s by His grace alone He allows us to enter into His righteousness.
Verse 29 ends Psalm 118 with this line, “Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.” May our hearts praise Him for His goodness and His everlasting grace.

Psalm 39:4-5 and Aspen Trees in the Snowy Range Mountains, Wyoming.
“O LORD, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am! Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah* (ESV)” Psalm 39:4-5
The Fleeting Measure of My Days
Autumn came and went. Did you catch it? It didn’t last. Our lives don’t last either.
King David, the writer of Psalm 39, asked God to remind him of how fleeting his life was. Knowing his days on earth were short, David wanted to make sure he stayed right with God.
When Christian believers stay mindful of the fact our days are short, we are more likely to focus on God and His ways. The best thing we can do with our hours and days here on earth is to live them for God. We don’t have many, so let’s make them count.
