Since Jesus is our life, we want to experience Him in every way we can–which I think is the main reason for reading Scripture. And it’s not just the New Testament, with its red letters to highlights the words of Christ’s words. Jesus said of the Old Testament scriptures: “These are they which testify of Me” (John 5:39). And nowhere this is evident to me more than in Psalm 119.
This is the sixth in our series about seeing Jesus in that psalm. I have simply put the name of Jesus in wherever I could, beginning with verse 124:
121 I have done what is right and just; leave me not to my oppressors.
122 Guarantee the well‑being of Your servant; let not the proud oppress me.
123 My eyes fail for Your salvation, and for the word of Your righteousness.
124 Deal with Your servant through Your mercy, and teach me about Jesus.
125 I am Your servant; give me understanding, that I may know Jesus.
126 It is time for You to work, Lord, for they have disregarded Jesus.
127 Therefore I love Jesus above gold, yes, above fine gold.
128 Therefore I consider Jesus to be right in everything, and I hate every false way.
129 Jesus is wonderful, therefore my soul trusts in Him.
130 The entrance of Jesus gives light, He gives understanding to the simple.
131 I opened my mouth and panted, for I longed for Jesus.
132 Look upon me and be merciful to me, as You have done to those who love Jesus.
133 Establish my steps in Jesus, and let not any sin have dominion over me.
134 Deliver me from the oppression of man; so will I trust in Jesus.
135 Make Your face shine upon Your servant, and teach me about Jesus.
136 Rivers of waters run down my eyes, because they do not trust in Jesus.
