The Psalmist here is showing how to be needy out loud as the humility of being able to say I'm not fine comes out of the Dalet
The hidden treasures of the hundred and 19. Once again we are miming in the hundred 19 on the gold section getting the verse four.
And as we talked about other sections. Verse four always seems the level of center mean to confuse you.
So when I say verse four of this section is actually verse 28 of the Psalm, but it's the fourth verse of the doll that section, which once again appears to be leveling up something here is particularly connected to strength which personally I feel like it fits together nicely with the fourth anointing that was meant in Isaiah 11 twitches might and so it's interesting here that King David is asking for strength so verse 28 reads again.
This is the doll at section so it's kind of his soul is gonna be you know down there being very humble so he says my soul melted for heaviness, strength, and thou me according to thy word.
So is like wow that is just totally different language than the previous verse, but in some way. It is connected and so it's part of the beauty of study in this is gone.
How did he go from here to here right make me understand the way of thy precepts. I shall talk of their wondrous works and after is that these wonders works next to you know my soul melted for heaviness and it almost sounds like he's depressed and when you look at whether that word melted in which Nina, had me confused begin with because what is melted have to do with heaviness and the word is actually almost 2 week right at that like tears come out in the idea of the melting is actually the dripping of something that would melt and so is his soul is being weighed down.
You know you're getting this melted effect and those of us to live through the last two years we have the idea that you know it doesn't seem like too strange that the times get to the point where your soul feels like it's weeping in my my past is to say, his soul leaks well same kind idea is that you know you are talking of the wondrous works and and it's interesting emotionally how we go from these like man I can come out of my my Bible study at eight or 9 o'clock in the morning and by noon, my soul is heaviest if melting for heaviness and and so I love this almost humility right here right at the idea of being needy out loud and and staying right here in this idea of melted, which is the way that that starts starts with a dollar right and so he's showing us again how humility fits into.
In this case, strength, right because that's how the verse comes it is that starts out with my my soul melted for heaviness and so he says strength, and thou me according to thy word, and so I thought you know how fun I wonder what word you know that that King David was using to you know because you say, and strengthen me according to thy word. And just for example, you might love this one. If you look at Deuteronomy 3325 thy shoes shall be iron and brass as thy days and so my strength shall be in other words, David had these verses right that that he knew of from the law that were just full of strength and and so you know if you're at that point, like I am quite often where my soul is leaking and where it melted the way for heaviness how wonderful is it that we can get this talk from God, such as thy shoes be iron and brass which you speaking to as are actually in Deuteronomy 3325 is giving him a blessing but in so many different ways. If you know in God's word where you're gonna get strength and is not going to be in the stuff that our soul is telling us is going to be in the stuff outside our soul because it's according to his word. Okay, so we talked about it before that weakness in Hebrew has to do with self talk, to blow it again. Man I'm just dealing with so much right now so which unit gets back to that 13 Psalm how long will I take counsel in my soul. Having sorrows in my heart daily. You know that that that's where weakness comes from first is getting a word from God, which is what David is saying here that if not get strength according to your word. So when now if I'm telling myself the story of how I might have shoes like iron right in feet like brass mean that God is gonna be the one that literally strengthens me, and I know the plans that I have for you to prosper you and not you know all those things that we know are in God's word change the story that were telling herself even this verse because this is this is King David's prayer and so opportunity for us if our soul feels like it's melting for heaviness right, which is this sense of the dollars, which is the sense of humility like man I got nothing.
Well, that's exactly where God wants you right.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst. Blessed are the meek. Another resist. This comes from this point because this is where God can come in and you can trade that for his strength right you can trade that for his beauty where where we leak that's where God really would love to come in in shorts and so here's the interesting level up that King David is gonna take us in the fourth verse, which we often find this is that this idea of might like God's strength is his word.
You know his promises. In this is where we gonna find that strength when we are melting and we are leaking like I was think about the Beatles songs is my guitar gently weeps.
This is the beautiful place for us to replace that leaking with God's word right.
Remember L song is a hole in the bucket dear Liza will fix it there. Henry glares at you do it put God's word in their pride put his word in there because his promises are true and true ring.
I think my day on the fourth verse of the valid section of the hundred
