"He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD."
The God who is the Judge:
The LORD, Jehovah, is the Judge, and He loves judgment! But please note that His decisions are fair, and based upon His righteousness.
“The king’s strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob,” (Psalm 99:4).
When the end of time is almost here, and this earth is ripe for God’s judgment, all people and nations will bow before the righteous King!
“And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest,” (Revelation 15:3-4).
If you have never bowed your knee and your heart to the coming Judge, why not do that today, and please do not wait until you will bow by compulsion bending your knee to Him.
The God who is Good!
No matter where on earth a man goes, nor what his job is, or what he seeks, one thing he will always find, even though he may not be willing to admit it. “The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.” This earth was planned by our Creator as a place just right for humans to live. The Creator made our world a habitable place for us; He gave us food, water, air, and all the elements necessary to establish and build a comfortable life. No matter where we travel, we see the fingerprints of God’s goodness.
“He not only doth no man wrong, but He is kind and merciful to all men,” (John Wesley).1
Have you turned to the righteous God, the good Creator, and the coming Judge?
I Sing the Mighty Power of God2
I sing the mighty power of God, that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command, and all the stars obey.
I sing the goodness of the Lord, who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word, and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky.
There’s not a plant or flower below, but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God art present there.
In this verse today I learned that My God Is Righteous, Just, and Good!
