Hidden Treasures of the 119th Psalm. Oh, I do love digging in the 119th Psalm.

It seems like every letter you get a diamond, so it's unbelievable or something even more valuable than a diamond, I would suppose. Psalm, it is the third verse in the hay section. And so, you know, I don't know if you've tracked with me, but you know, on Isaiah 11 is the seven anointings that the Messiah would get and Jesus God. And so Jesus is the word and so every single letter in the Hebrew alphabet is Jesus. And so every single letter has seven anointings and those anointings are described to us. And so, you know, Jesus is the word, and so every single letter in the Hebrew alphabet is Jesus. And it seems to me, the more I've studied this, that they follow along, that King David was under the Spirit there, and of course Isaiah was written after this was written, so maybe Isaiah saw this trend and realized, oh, these are the anointings of God. I don't know, but what I do know is it sure does seem to follow that trend, so when we look at that idea of those seven anointings and the order of them, the first one is wisdom, the second one is understanding, and the third one is counsel. So if we get to this third idea or the third verse in the hay section, right, and the hay section, as we've talked about all along, the letter hay is the sense of expression, is how God expresses himself through letters themselves, interestingly.

It's kind of a too deep to even go there kind of thing. But when I read this verse, I want you to think about that the idea of counsel, which is the third anointing that's talked about in Isaiah 11, the idea of counsel is to point somebody in the right direction, right, to show somebody where God is would be definitely a good counsel, and so, you know, when you look at the third verse of each of these letters, you kind of get an idea of that anointing of that letter, and so how beautifully is this worded when you think about that in this particular verse says, make me to go in the path of thy commandments for therein do I delight. So that's pretty good counsel, make me go. I mean, and it's really, really cool when you actually look at the way that this is in Hebrew is the first word of the verse, of course, starts with a hey, which means the kind of it in the way that it's here. And so it's actually the Derek, which means the way. Well, who is the way? So, and the way that there's a suffix on it that, that of the word path that has this sense of why they wrote make me and so talk about being guided is essentially you can hardly go wrong. If the way is Jesus and you're made to go into the Jesus of the path, the direction to go.

And so it's just absolutely beautiful, then where are you going? Well, you're going towards these commandments as we talked about yesterday. You know, the two greatest commandments are, right? Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, right? And love your neighbor as yourself. So make me go this way, make me go in the way of love. Make me go in the way of Jesus. For there is my delight.

Now, I wanted to share a story to kind of illustrate what this looks like because sometimes we're not so quick to go in the path of love. So, you know, I do the Jesus labor love. It's part of being the Christian car guys. We help out single moms and widows and families in crisis. And I make my phone number pretty available at the website for somebody that would need me. So I get a lot of calls, but I get a lot of calls, I'm sure like you get a lot of calls. So when I don't recognize a number, I don't answer it. I wait to see what the message will be.

You may do the same thing, I don't know. So the idea of these mitzvah, these commandments is clearly what the Jews teach, they're good deeds. And so the Jesus labor love kind of fits into the loving on your neighbor part.

It definitely fits into the idea of a mitzvah. So last week I remembered, you know, I got one of these calls, and when I listened to the message I could tell that it was a Jesus labor love, a single mom who was clearly in a crisis. She couldn't get her, she didn't know what was going on with her car, she didn't have the money to get it fixed, and you could tell from the message that she was very perplexed. Now my initial response was, well, I'll just turn this over to the wonderful volunteer I have, Scott, and let him handle this, you know.

Or, you know, text her and tell her to fill out an application. There's a lot of ways I could have dealt with this, but I just sensed, fortunately, you know, God's saying Robbie, call her, okay? And that was what I, and that's what I sensed was my mitzvah right there, this was my commandment, Robbie, this person needs some love, so I called her. And that's always, it sounds easy, but it ain't all that easy for me.

I'm not the most outgoing person in the world, maybe you think I am because I'm on the radio, but it just isn't my personality to reach out to people I don't know. But I did, and I, you know, I broke through that because I realized this was something this, God wanted me to go here, so I called her. And of course, she immediately told me, you know, what was going on, which was obviously very overwhelming.

And one of the beautiful things that God taught me years ago with the Jesus labor love is you push into that mitzvah, as you push into that command, the most beautiful thing you can do as quickly as you can do it is pray with the applicant. So before I gave her any suggestion, I just said, you know, it sure sounds like we could use God's help because you just sound overwhelmed, and I'm overwhelmed, so why don't we get somebody who isn't overwhelmed in on this, I said, do you mind if I pray with you? And she said, oh, I would love that. So as I prayed this prayer that God gave me years ago, which is, you know, just, you know, I used the lady's name, I'm so grateful, I'll say Mildred, okay, it wasn't Mildred. But thank you that Mildred had the courage to call me.

And Lord, that's really hard when people are hurting, so I appreciate her courage, and I just pray you would meet her right there at this place and see that she would feel, you got this covered, and it's gonna be okay, that we don't know how it's gonna work out, but it will work out. And of course, you know, went on to pray with her a little bit more, but the point I'm making is that, oh my goodness, what an impact. You could tell immediately when I got done praying, like, okay, she felt God, because she was a different lady. You could see, you could sense she had so much more peace, and she was so grateful for the prayer, okay? And again, this wasn't anything I did because, oh, I'm leaning on God through it because it wasn't my natural inclination to do it, but on the other side of it, I could sense that God had touched her, and God had had a chance to do this thing, right? And so I'm praying with King David, because, you know, make me go in the way, in the Jesus of your commandments.

In other words, sometimes I go kicking and screaming a little bit, but it's okay. You know, Jesus, he's gonna give us this stuff graciously. We've talked about it in other verses, but I certainly think this one is just one of those real diamonds, and again, I just, I love the concept, or I love the way that the Holy Spirit wrote this through David to give me more understanding, not just of the verse, but more understanding of who Jesus is, what those anointings are, and how when we take place in expressing ourselves, in expressing these letters like the hey, you know, the anointing that can go along with that, because it's got Jesus in it. And so there you go, the verse again is make me to go in the path of thy commandments, for therein is my delight, and oh my goodness, is there a delight on the other side when you get to see God? As I did this morning by sharing this with you, thank you so much for listening, because I get to do this, and it's so much joy to share it with you today. God bless.
