It’s not uncommon for many to form their own opinion of God. We often see people redefine His love as a license. His tenderness as tolerance. His patience as permission.
His grace is limitless, but it mandates a life of obedience.
The psalmist conceded the reign of the wicked, but he also comprehended the righteousness of The LORD. It is exclusive, it is extreme and it is expecting. “For the Lord is righteous; He loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold His face.” (Ps 11:7)
Who He is requires what we do.
The Reason – He is righteous. He is holy. He is just. He is Divine.
His Response – He loves us and He loves our submission to Him which produces a righteous life. He is delighted.
The Result – We bask in His presence. We behold His face. He is our desire.
“When we walk with The Lord, in the light of His word, what a glory He sheds on our way.”
