Psalms 119:140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
The might anointing of the Letter Tzaddi, in so many ways, The Word, is both Pure and Purifying and the might of that is beyond my imagination. I share a story to get some feel for that.
This is the Truth Network treasurers of we might badly actually one of my most favorite in the whole fall, so I'm sure you clearly see why this is the anointing of might. When it comes to the idea of the letters that he and clearly Christ had this in so many different ways but anyway verse 140 reads in English. Thy word is very pure. Therefore thy servant loveth it and so true. Like oh my goodness, oh my goodness. Interesting thing about that verse is of course to start with is that it like we know it would word pure. There is the word that starts with the data and actually interestingly mostly that would normally be considered a verb, not an adjective describing the word as being pure but it's actually a verb that has to do with smelting. Actually, the whole idea of the purification process of how you would get rid of draws and so and and so a lot of times this is translated, you know that word is tested or tried because again they're trying to get out the idea of what that word is in Hebrew, which is a verb, but here it seems to be an adjective, so I'll let your mind work around them that it's really cool to think of all the different possibilities of how the word does purify us and does tested but by the same token, it is very pure and he gets back to that concept we talked about of thy word.
Also being connected to the manna in the desert you know it was this day our daily bread. I'm sure when you pray Lord's prayer, like I am. I'm asking for those words that are our daily bread and the idea of the manna there that the used sheet, which I think is beautiful is that this manner was so pure it was exactly what your body needed that when you ate it. It would go immediately would never make in your stomach because it was the second it touched your mouth.
It was exactly what every cell in your body needed and it was absolutely pure pure pure so that it would go right to what you need and there was no draws. There was nothing left over, and that when we get the idea of the word of God. Jesus is all that he needs to be and not one little bit less and so it is with the word of God.
In summary, different ways. You know it's purest of pure and you know the neat thing is, how does this actually you to work out as as it purifies our life.
At the same time, it is pure so you know I don't know if you're like me, but when you finally get something biblical in your mind. It goes in your soul and it just becomes part of you. Well I had a real struggle is my example of this. How the word both was totally pure to me and I actually was able to consume it, and I have kept it ever since. Was I had a real struggle with the word grace because it's used all over the place. I mean so many things for his grace and were going to say grace and and and I was actually listening to a sermon series that that the pastor that our church was doing at the time and he was going to do a year on grace and all these different passages inhabited do with grace and the more he taught on it, the more confused I got it and so I decided you know God, you have to help me with this and began to pray God show me what grace is inch and and I began to study the word and I begot the idea of favor, and it kept coming back that no matter how you look at it that this had to do with favor.
And then one day I was actually it's interesting it's like when you begin to meditate on a word or you begin to meditate on the word of God will bring something in your life. It just illustrates it beautifully and all of a sudden it rockets in your soul. This happened to me in the word grace I was watching a movie with my granddaughter was called, as I recall, Barbie the sea princess or something like that. The mermaid princes and the idea was that the Barbie we had been born as a princess but was stolen away by some even the evil Ursula Kuyper characters that had kept her from her father the king but she had this sort of magical power is the princes that she was that she could, you know, essentially command Pearl she could put pearls wherever it is that she wanted pearls to be in the way this worked out is that she got invited to the Royal ball somehow in and she decided that you do not check with the people that were watching her and go to the ball with her friend and and so when they're on their way. They come across a stone fish and this stone fish is like the most poisonous fish in the sea and it's a hilarious scene and the stone fish you know confronts them like on the most poisonous fish in the sea, you need to stay away from a bubble. Bobby had a really squeaky little voice and Barbie in spite of how mean and ugly.
The stone fish was being Barbie treated this stone fish like he was her favorite. Oh Mr. stone fish don't be so mean you know she is the way she started talking like you need friends and so she you know he has all these poisonous barbs all over them so she put no command these pearls on all of this deal.
All of his poisonous barbs so he can, you know, you know, in fact, anybody and she goes now, you could be in a friendly with your fellow fish really upsets this television earth where I can't make you know it took away his identity that he was in his poisonous character and through her grace right he became out throughout the movie as you watch what happened because she kept on treating him like he was a good guy and he became a good guy because of her favor right she treated them like he was as wonderful, beautiful person. Throughout it, and as I watched the transformation I realized what grace was like oh my goodness when I am around a truly godly person. I feel like I'm there favorite and they bring out the best in me because that's your expectation of me and it's as if they know me better than I know myself as like my pastor past reports I Ike I can't tell you every time that I talked to the man.
He always brought out the best me because he he look for the best in me.
I mean it.
What I was his favorite and so as I got this idea of the word favor and you know in Isaiah 61 racism and declare this the year the words Lord's favor, which by the way is not the word grace never dictates but is the year that Robbie is his favorite and what the more I study the word grace which has to do with no one the more I realized that Grace found favor in other words, God saw in know that he was his favorite, and all that.
Just like the Barbie character and all the sudden idea of like his grace or saying grace like man I'm of this.
My favorite food really favor you know because it's God's joy to feed us and and and then then what hit me home. More than anything else that has to do with grace and I can talk on the subject forever love it is in John chapter 1.
You might remember that John says that Jesus is full of grace and truth. And so I started to multiply my mind all these people.
I just love to be in their presence is a treat me like there on their favorite and you might remember me talk about Ms. Beck. My 97 or she would be hundred and four, and she would bring out the best of me and so many different ways because she just treated me so gracefully that that I thought wow you could take that feeling I had around past records are. I had around this Beck and multiplied by about a billion. Because Jesus is full of grace and truth because Ms. Beck and pastor courts would always tell you the truth, but they did it in such love in such favorite was unbelievable right and so what I'm saying is when I got the idea of the purity of the word grace and when I began to see what it was and got the concept all my gosh.
Not only was it so pure that my soul could completely consume.
But as you can tell it purified me because guess what is when I'm around other people. I tried to be. You know I fail all the time.
I try to remember this idea man. This is my favorite right in front of me right just like everyone of you listening right now I want to think as I'm sitting here doing this podcast that you are absolutely my favorite may not.
I am so grateful for you, listening and and I pray that as as as you join with me in these words that you will see all my goodness every single work is your and every single word has this kind of power. Oh if we could just understand you know I agree with the Psalms might letters that he might die.
Word is thy servant, love
