Can you imagine your heart as smitten with God as with your first love, so smitten for your neighbor that you would run to bring them into the Kingdom - Verse 32 the Fruit of the 7 verses of the Dalet Section is that prayer
The hidden treasures of the hundred 19. Also, today we get to dig into what my favorite verse, long before I started the study of the hundred nine. I've used it in boot camps time and again, and I've quoted it and thought about it in so many different ways.
When you think about it today.
Of course, were on the eighth verse of the ballot section which means it's kind of the fruit of all the other verses all the other prayers are leading up to this lady with trillions huge in the case of the doll that is often quoted verse but I don't remember the song from the Sean Bell's back in the 60 but it 60s but it went sort of like it did do run run run to do. Run run last get all the big about my head when I think of them first so this verse reads in the King James version, but it's actually verse 32 of the hundred 19 Psalm which is the eighth verse in the ballot section. It says I will run in the way of thy commandments when thou shalt enlarge my heart. Well this said I could say, so much so fast that I want to go to first it's just such an exciting verse for me because can you imagine what it would be like to be able to just run it is as a servant of God to run towards the things that he wants to run with your whole heart, which is what King David is going after you know, obviously throughout the whole thing so when we look at this we have to or we don't have to, but I like to think of what Jesus told taught what were the two greatest commandments right that was to love the Lord thy God, and to love your neighbor as yourself. So I'm in this commandment are this idea of commandments has everything to do with love, and of course we talked about before this word is mitzvah but when you boil down the mitzvah. What we talk about love God, love your neighbor right. Oh, can you imagine if you just imagine that when you remember back to the first time you fell in love got a crush whatever you want to call it when all of a sudden God enlarge your heart and you saw somebody or something that just made your heart come alive like oh my goodness, I can remember mind's name was Susan Seamans right and I used to just hang out around her neighborhood just I might get a glimpse of her. I was so my heart is been so enlarged and believe me when it said I would run to find ways to be around her because I was so in love. I mean I just totally smitten with a whole new Susan Seamans deal so what King David's asking here is really really amazing when you think about it because it has everything to do with the do run run run right that God is going to touch our hearts in such a way that we are falling more in love with him and more in love with our neighbor and how does that happen and happen through the whole solid section.
If you think about it is he's going to enlarge her heart has you get your heart back while he's gonna restore it right and it starts out with Quicken Maumee right. My soul cleaves to the dust and so as you go back through all these verses of the ballot section you can see that this door of humility is going to lead to the place where you can fall more in love with God than you ever have before, where he will enlarge your heart so that you can run as it were to do.
Run run run like the Sean Bell's or sing about because they there will heart whoever wrote the song is hearts been enlarge for builders know that some folks you know it's just something that I really pray. I do pray this morning that God would enlarge your heart to just look back through the other seven verses of humility of you know, clinging to the dust of you know confession through you know telling our ways and clinging to these testimonies and you know actually cleaving like we talked about last yesterday are in the previous episode so so the idea again is that on this eighth verse you know here were going to see the fruit of walking in this door of humility which again is going to get us to the point were God's given enlarge your heart and you be so smitten for God and for your neighbor that that you will literally run right to love on them somehow and and what a beautiful thing as we get so hung up in so many things that God is going to through humility, put us in this place that where we really do consider others more than we can consider ourselves consider God first and others know what an amazing amazing promise terrorism. This gets peak King David doesn't say no. If you enlarge my heart, but he says when you know when you enlarge my heart.
I am going to run in the path of your commandments and if you go back to the first time that somebody runs in the Bible it gives us another picture of this right.
The first person to run in the Bible was Abraham and why did he run. He ran because the people in The Angels had come to visit them and he wanted to show them hospitality. You don't think that his heart was enlarged set God himself showed up and he was he ran to go get no help get them food and all that kind of thing which is really when you read more about Abraham, his heart was about loving his neighbor in so many different ways and and so is God will enlarge our heart that not only will we fall more in love with God.
But when it comes these mitzvah's right. The two greatest ones are love God and love your neighbor so just ponder back with me in a. When did you feel your heart so enlarged that all my goodness it was so much fun to run in love to do. Run run run to do run
