Righteousness and Justice

The Lord reigns: let the earth rejoice;
Let the many islands be glad.
Clouds and thick darkness surround Him;
Righteousness and Justice are
the foundation of His throne. Psalm 97:1-2

Praise the Lord!
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting;
Who can speak of the mighty deeds of the Lord,
Or can show forth all His praise?
How blessed are those who keep justice,
Who practice righteousness at all time! Psalm 106:1-3

Bitter sweet verses for me! Why? Because although God's love is everlasting, the foundation of His throne is Righteousness and Justice. That means that because God is righteous, He can not let sin go undisciplined. But thankfully His discipline is not meant to push us away but to draw us closer to Him. Psalm 106 says that we are blessed if we keep justice and practice righteousness.

My challange for us today is to chose righteousness in everything we do and experience the blessings that God so richly wants to lavish on us. May we be about God's business today.

Righteousness and Justice is the foundation of God's throne. What is the foundation of your home?

Seeking Him with you and for you,
