Open our eyes so we can see - verse 18 is a treasure itself
The treasurers of the hundred and 19 so we are going on a treasure hunt and the gold we are seeking in this treasure hunt is actually the phrase of God like to join us.
Taking this deep dive mining with David in the hundred and 19 day as we get mining in the 18 day in Psalms 9, so be remiss if I didn't mention if you're just now tuning into this broadcasted probably be really helpful to go back to the beginning where we give you the matrix and the 10 words that are repeated below each episode kinda builds on the other so imagine be hard to come in in the middle of this. Nonetheless, if you're here were just glad you're here and and you know thing about this particular verse 318 versus, like the prayer that we all have this week get into this psalm itself because the 18 verse reads in the King James version, open thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law, which you know is clearly what were all doing, you know, as we are studying this Psalm we are wanting to behold wondrous things out of thy law and again we are in the gimbal section and as we talked about the beautiful thing it in this particular section is the whole section starts with the very word gimbal. In other words, that word which is that foot the beautiful feet that brings good news and its idea of the rich man that is right restoring to the poor man, something that is been stolen from them.
But it also is this idea of weaning like we talked about in the last episode which was deal bountifully with us right and that idea of weaning is that of nourishing someone or something until it's right and so you along those lines. When we get to today's verse I think about a small child and not only do you obviously want to feed them well, but then you want to begin to open up their eyes to see the world and so you know, look how colorful the toys are for an infant in order to catch their attention. But at some point in time. You know that's that's small potatoes compared to taking them on a vacation and letting them sit on the edge of the Grand Canyon and or on top of the mountain or out of the beach and watch the water come resident in all these things are wondrous things that help us contemplate and think about God that we fall more in love with them. The more we think about it so is he is giving us this can this whole idea again. Is this idea of nourishing us until were ripe and so the holding wondrous things out of thy law is just like oh my goodness. So in order to have that happen. You can have your eyes opened and a course in my mind that means Jesus because you need the Holy Spirit in order to see the wondrous things in the word and that was the one of my favorite things all time that I was told by Norman Vincent Peale. Actually when I started my journey into the Bible. He said you gotta get up an hour early every morning to pray is only the Holy Spirit can show you, you know what these things are so here you know.
King David is giving us all this beautiful prayer, but I don't want anybody to miss the beauty of the letters that are actually inside of the words wondrous and law right so the word wondrous in Hebrew is got some beautiful things inside of it. It has this pay which means the very presence of God right in it and it has again your heart so you can imagine your heart in the presence of God. You know, these are things that I did or just are beyond my whole you know like oh my goodness. And then there's the aleph again. You know if you have this vision of God in your heart, then you have the wisdom and the father the kinda show you what that's about, and then a vote of sort of Jacobs ladder coming down from heaven, and the last letter in wondrous is a top which is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which is kind of a culmination of all the other letters, but it means truth okay headset which was like wow if you could be in God's presence and and and like on the road to Emmaus is actually studying the law with Jesus right your heart would burn within you with every single one of these letters is its one of those things, like if we could just see all that is really here and then the word Torah right because each skill, behold wondrous things of what which is the very things that caused the disciples when they were walking to Jesus, their hearts burn within them. When Jesus explained the stuff that was in the Scriptures in the Torah, so I mean it's saying and I hope you're with me that this is one of the opportunities that we have raised this amazing open my eyes more than I maybe wondrous things out of thy law
