Love and Faithfulness meet .....
I will listen to what God the Lord will say;
He promises peace to his people, His saints--
but let them not return to folly.
Surely His salvation is near those who fear Him,
that His glory may dwell in our land.
Love and faithfulness meet together;
Righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
and righteousness looks down from heaven.
The Lord will indeed give what is good,
and our land will yield a harvest.
Righteousness goes before him
and prepares the way for his steps.
This verse just seemed so clear to me the other day. I saw that God is the Love and faithfulness is the faithful true believers who worship and follow His ways here on earth.
Righteousness is God just as Love is God. Peace is the result of the love of God to mankind and back to God from the faithful.
See how the faithful spring forth from earth? And Righteousness looks down from heaven?
When this happens the land does yield a harvest. For Righteousness (God) goes before the man and prepares the way for his steps. (God directs our steps)
But heed the warning! Do not turn back to the old way of thinking or acting. The way you did before God lead you out! Stay the course and keep your mind on His Word and follow all His ways!
May your week be filled with Joy of worship to God and His purpose to and in our lives. Knowing that all He does is out of total love for the end result that only He knows is best. Trust Him.
*A little note. I capitalize any word that is Holy. God is always capitalized as is Jesus, Christ, Holy Spirit. I want to honor His name in all ways.
