Our address is Baptist Bible.

Our ox 1737, Cincinnati, OH 45217, we continue today with the message. Holy desires from a humble heart text is Psalm 119 verse 131. I opened my mouth and panted, for I long for the pie commitments as we observe the strong desire expressed by the Saugus for Wayne, the commandments of God and having fellowship with him.

We learn and apply the blessed truth in our lives. There was a Canaanite woman approached Jesus when he was here on earth and should have mercy on me. My daughter is six with Michelle Jesus said in Matthew 1526 he answered and said it is not meet to take the children's bread and cast it to dogs is not a Jew, and Jesus made plain that he had come first to minister to the G and it said it's not right for me to take the children's bread and cast it all and she said, truth dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters take and then an amazing exchange think this woman would be deeply offended and Jesus I can't take that which longs for the children and given to the dogs. She might've said that like one of these self-righteous individual you call me and all suggesting that I'm such a low status that you speak to me in that tone, but she wasn't because she knew she needed mercy. She knew she was a center of anything and so she responded by saying the dogs eat the crumbs involving the master stable and Jesus answered and said unto her knee acknowledging this is an amazing responses.

An old woman, great is thy faith be under the as thou wilt.

And her daughter was made whole from that very matter what what what a humble spirit born GET the crumbs fall in the master stable and clean approach of heart like that.

Lord I can't make any demands you're not obligated to me. I don't deserve anything the dogs get the problems that come asking for mercy.

It's it's mercy. If we are forgiven what one of remarkable blessing, the forgiveness of sin. The think that God, who is holy and hates every evil way.

The angelic hosts sing it three times. Holy, holy, holy God being holy in his entire person.

It forgives sin doing by just ignoring sin by pretending that sin is not all that great doing.

Like so many in our culture doing today to try to defend and justify but he forgives it he forgives on the basis of the sacrifice of his son Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ went to the cross, sin of all of those and ultimately mountain humor put upon him. He suffered in their stand, and therefore we have that less promise that if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse mercy and hear anybody say to you when you asked for forgiveness, sorry I can't forget or they might have uses little tripe statement to while forgive you but I won't forget that support Miranda forgiveness you need new product That is not worth anything when the Lord forgives you cast your sins and see their sins and iniquities will I remember no more mercy is what we need if we claim one of his promises. We talk recently about the fact that his promises are gay and on-demand their reliable we can count on. But when we go to his word. We readers promise which I treasure that I love that horn, grant that I can receive the benefit of we go there on the basis of meeting mercy Lord, I need mercy, not the psalmist love to speak a lot about mercy. Verse 41. Let thy mercies come also unknown to me oh Lord, even thy salvation according to the numbers, even thy salvation strictly for salvation.

We have is on the basis of mercy, not on the basis of merit not on the basis of works on the basis of religious exercise on the basis of mercy, the mercy God has on us because of the price paid by his son Jesus Christ.

Verse 58. I am treated thy favor with my whole heart. Be merciful unto me about merciful in harmony with your work with what you have declared in harmony with your character. Be merciful to me. Verse 76. Let crave the merciful kindness be for my comfort in that beautiful language but from what is suggested pray the thy merciful kindness. Oh how we desperately need the kindness of our father and the psalmist describes it as merciful kindness and explore my comfort God describes himself as the common wall comfort. He comforts us in our workplaces. We might be able to comfort others comforts us where cash down.

I pray the thy merciful kindness for my comfort.

According to thy word unto thy servant for 77.

Let thy tender mercies language goes on in such a beautiful form. Not only does he describe mercy that tender he looks down upon us with compassion. Let thy tender mercies, come on to me that I may live without law is my delight and not objecting to the complaining about it is not like what is set forth in that word is that which I will to obey some 136 verse one all give thanks from the Lord for he is good for his mercy endures forever at work. He's not merciful. One day, they change his mind.

The next is mercy endures forever, and that's repeated in all 26 verses of that so 26 times he says will give thanks and bloodletting begins to enumerate some of those wonderful mercies that were enjoyed by his people in their travels in the wilderness and other times when he was gracious and merciful to them. Give thanks we give thanks to the Lord because he's good he's good to us is merciful and his mercy endures for ever.

And not only do we find these references abundantly in the songs we find other places as well. Micah chapter 7 verse 18 who is a godlike under the that apartments iniquity and passive black transgression. The transgression of the remnant of his heritage he retained is not his anger forever because, get this. He delighted in mercy and the Lord and talking into it as a God is reluctant. He doesn't want to be merciful. He is merciful. That's part of who is a delight action mercy, we come to him looking for mercy.

Asking for mercy and were assured that he delights he will return again he will have compassion upon us will subdue.

He will subdue our iniquities, and I will cast all their sins into the depths of this baby times if he thought I wish I could personally test all of us into the depths of the sea get rid of them or they didn't trouble him anymore but something God says he he's going to be merciful to you. He delights to be merciful. He's going to put your sin away so that it's not charged to your account anymore and then come to the New Testament.

I'm sure you called on that this is one of my favorite passages. Hebrews 415 for we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities but was in all points tempted like as we are yet without sin. Therefore, therefore, referring to what you just sent because we have a high priest who can be correct with the thing he learned from so were being invited based on the fact that we have intercession we have our high priest. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, not the bar of justice, but the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy know you need mercy here is encouragement to come to the throne of grace, that you may obtain obtain mercy, and secondly find grace to help in time of need. All those times of need. Come in great abundance matter of needing him on a daily basis. We sing the song I need the every hour is another solace, and moment by moment. So when you're talking about hourly errors.

Every moment, every minute of every day. We need help and he tells us when we come to the throne of grace, that we can obtain the mercy we need and therefore find grace to help now.

The fourth thing in this portion. Verse 132, he said, and looked down upon me and be merciful unto me, as now I used to do unto those that love. I be merciful on the me as you have dealt with your people can't pass.

I'm not asking for more than that.

I'm not asking for any lesson bring Lord, be merciful to me as you use to do well without declaring it directly includes himself with those that love God's name was he saying, Lord, bless me, look upon me, have mercy upon me as you have done to those that love your day was to be treated as those that love God's name means implying I'm one of those, those that love God whole.

How many times we have to admit that our love for the Lord is not what hymn writer said.

Dear Lord, and shall we ever live at this poor dying rate our love so faint, so cold to the am dying to us so, Holy Spirit heavenly God with all thy quickening powers come share brought the Savior's love and that oh, how we must confess our love for him something so cold, but his love for us so great. Surely, though, we can say that we have to acknowledge our love does not have the fervor don't have the intensity in order to have the depth not to have that we surely love the God's children love God's name and it's more than just his name.

His name represents.

We represent church characters attributes what is revealed about himself in his work the love the God who is the creator of heaven and earth all their many that prefer another kind of God say I would like a more gentle, I'm not comfortable that God of the Old Testament to send the flood around all the inhabitants of the earth save a children are not comfortable that God sends out Firebirds of the city. I like him or chicken lobster. The person is trying to define God according their own preferences doesn't love true and living God, not to add to his word would not take away from her not to try to adjust what God said about himself as though we are somewhat embarrassed about some things are revealed in Scripture concerning God's anger is right, the punishment that he will meet out the poem the wicked. We love him we love him as he represents himself to be in his so David has to be dealt with as the sanction always been dealt with them that love God. Lord look upon me and deal with me as you use to deal with her people of times past.

Well, one of the things the way God dealt with this people has jumped with the years is that the very patient. Psalm 102 verse eight, the Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy. Verse 10 he had not dealt with us after our sins are rewarded us according to our iniquities for asthma. Heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him as far as the east is from the West so far has he removed our transgressions from us like as a father. His children show the Lord. Them that fear him, for he know our frame. He remembered that we are just you get to that place where you're feeling particularly weak how encouraging to know that your heavenly father pities you as a father pays his children and he remembers our frame.

He knows that we are but dust. He understand and therefore we can have hope and encouraged by trusting in him then says I want to deal with me as you used to deal with her people. He promised to be with them any loss look to the number those promises. In our studies in the book of Joshua God promised to be with his people promptly with them in their wanderings of the workers promised to be with them when they came in the land of Canaan promised to be with them in fighting the enemy that he was with them so saying the with me. Look upon me as you have dealt with your people in times past. Isaiah chapter 63 verse nine says, in all their afflictions, and he was afflicted exclamation statement and all their afflictions endured by God's people, was with them in their affliction, and the angel of his presence save them in his love, and in his. He redeemed them and he banned them and carried them all the days of yes shall not pass, as the waters, they shall not overflow the standards of the five Eschenbach paper God kept that promise. Three Hebrews testing the fire. They were not well short and there been those who God martyrs death and the fire but God was with them. Nevertheless, giving them peach courage. When one the other day was tied up with the three men being burned at the stake because their testimony of the gospel back in time in England. One of them decided I can't take this anymore and he started working his way to try to get out how he was bound and the other two were praying for him to show it was back he says I couldn't turn my back on the testimony of my Lord. He is with me and the three of them died in the fire shaking prices. God and so when God promised to give his people to click. He did a promise to teach them. This is interesting.

Verse 33 of this 119th Psalm says teach me oh Lord of the way of thy testimonies and I shall keep it under the in give me understanding and I shall keep thy law yea I shall observe it with my whole heart as much focuses on mercy might begin to think maybe the standard is not being held up.

The psalmist is only thinking about mercy and forgiveness and not so concerned about his conduct.

But that's not the case he's praying Lord, teach me.

I need to be told. Teach me the way of thy testimonies, not according to popular opinion about personal preferences, but according to Dr. and I should keep in underthings give me understanding. I don't have myself give me understanding and I shall keep thy law, I will observe with my whole heart and one way in which God has dealt with this people in the spring. I'm not asking for anything in the last court deal with me as you have done dealing with her people. In years gone by. One of the things God does for sleep to chest. Hebrews 12 six cents from the Lord, love HHS and scourges every son whom he receives. That's not something what to pray for, necessarily, but it's something that is for our benefit if the Lord loves us. He will chasers he will deal with us to correct us because his purpose is not to inflict pain but to changes his purpose is to bring us to the place of machine and acknowledge our sin turn from her shin.

Now David did not expect answers without prior, so saying Lord look on me. A certain acknowledging I need God. I need his help I need his blessing and we have to realize that you don't get an answer prayer and I should bring you don't get a harvest without labor. You don't get the victory without the David won a great victory over the last but he had to have the courage as a young man to go out there against this formidable enemy draw the sword and be willing to march toward him ultimately to cut his head. He did not expect to go through life without difficulties. Verse 71 he says it is good for me that I have been afflicted. If we get the idea that serving God than God, hearing us and blessing us means were going to be exempt from troubles and trials were mistaken hymn writer said shall I be carried to the skies on flowerbeds. Of these, while others fought to win the prize and sailed they would say it was good for me to have been afflicted. I know that I will have trouble. She's acknowledging that but he says, oh Lord, here's my desire.

Holy desires from a humble heart. I open my mouth and panted for a long document which looked down upon me and be merciful unto me, as now, used to do unto those that love me and the father we pray with Seamus look down upon us look upon us to see our great need. Look upon us to see how desperately we need by mercy look upon us to forgive us and cleanse us through the merits of our Savior Jesus Christ grant these things for the namesake.

We pray a man she vivid language open my mouth and paint. I long for the commandments.

I was diligent, sincere feeling urgency paint long for the coming spring that will be the case with each of us as we endeavor to serve God from thing to thing the right of center next week.
