· Psalm 119:105-112
What could be more glorious than a King fearlessly leading His subjects into battle? You have heard the saying, “Going down in a blaze of glory.” Well, it’s a Blaze of Glory alright, but there’s no going down for this King, unless you mean going down from the heavens to earth to do battle, conquer and vanquish all His foes.
The Traditional text to read is Psalm 119:105-112
105 ¶ NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
The Torah should guide our every footstep and it gives us enough light to see as far as God wants us to go, one day, one step at a time.
106 ¶ I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.
David has sworn to keep the Torah no matter what!
107 ¶ I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.
Again David knows that only the Torah contains the Words of Live. Did not the Talmideem (Disciples) of Yeshua say this very thing about Him, who is the Living Torah (John 6:68)?
108 ¶ Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
David doesn’t keep the Torah because he feels he
to, he does it because he WANTS to and therefore wants Divine instruction and
insight on how to keep it better.
109 ¶ My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
David is 100% dependant and devoted to ADONAI and His Torah.
110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.
He admits here that the Torah is what forewarned him and kept him safe from the pitfalls of the wicked and their schemes.
111 ¶ Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
The Torah is so precious to Him that it is the key thing he will pass on to his descendants, and he has claimed the promises in there for himself and his family.
112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.
He is dead set resolved to keep the Torah no matter what, and this theme has already been repeated over and over in this Psalm.
“Almighty and Majestic King of the Universe, mold me into the majestic warrior You are, so that I may have victory in my daily life. In the Name of Messiah Yeshua I pray, Ameyn.”
