Daily D – Psalm 89:14-15

by | Aug 27, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; faithful love and truth go before you. Happy are the people who know the joyful shout; LORD, they walk in the light from your face.
PSALM 89:14-15 (CSB)

—————————————————————————
 
The Right and Justice are the roots of your rule;
Love and Truth are its fruits.
Blessed are the people who know the passwords of praise,
who shout on parade in the bright presence of GOD.
(The Message)

Some days it is hard to know what to say. Some days it is hard to know what to think. When bad news accumulates and accelerates the way it is right now, we are prone to look away, to seek distraction. 

Is there any hope for a better future?

Not in Washington D. C. 

Not in Kabul.

Not in NATO.

Not in the United Nations. 

There is a God in heaven, however, whose rule is Right and Just. He produces Love and Truth for all who trust in him. 

Psalm 89 starts strong and continues with positive declarations for long sections. Then it turns dark. So dark that the author asks, “How long, LORD? Will you hide forever?” (verse 46).

He continues in verse 49: “Lord, where are the former acts of your faithful love that you swore to David in your faithfulness?”

We do not get to choose the days in which we live. We do get to choose how we live in them. We are to seek what is right and just in our day and time. We will know we are doing the right thing the right way for the right reason when love and truth accelerate and hatred and hostility dissipate. 

There is plenty of work for everyone. Let us start where we are. Let us each become part of God’s solution to the mess we are in.

—————————————————————————

I will focus my life on what is right and just.

—————————————————————————

Our Father, we are in a mess down here. When will you clean up things? How may we join you on the cleanup crews? What can we do today where we live, work, and play? How can we be part of the solution and not part of the problem? Your kingdom come. Your will be done. Here and now, today and forever. Amen.
