Psalm 89:14 “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;love and faithfulness go before You.” (NIV)
Has life ever turned against you where you feel like you are at the bottom? David was there in Psalm 119:25a when he said, “I am laid low in the dust” (NIV) The path through times like this seem obscure, but the way through the morass leaves you the choice of going it alone without God or with Him; choosing man’s ways or God’s ways; trusting in God’s providential plan or creating your own. When you choose God, you are building your foundation on solid rock! In Matthew 7:24, Jesus teaches , “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (NIV) Every time you choose God, you are not only building a foundation that sustains you in the present, but also preparing a stronger foundation for your future. 2 Samuel 22:37 describes it this way, "Thou dost enlarge my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped.” (NASB) Psalm 91:4 illustrates how you are stepping into the arms of God when you choose Him, “He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” (NIV) How does love and faithfulness go before you? It means you will not be going forward alone, but with God and His loving embrace. Your step of faith releases a greater measure of God’s love, peace, and hope into your life. God not only does this, but He will allow His faithfulness to clear the way for you. As you walk by faith, God will start to color your world with open doors and windows of His faithfulness. Yes, it is a walk of faith…but with open ears and eyes and a receptive heart and spirit, the Lord your God will be preparing the way with His love and faithfulness!
Psalm 36:5-9 “Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, Your justice like the great deep. O LORD, You preserve both man and beast. How priceless is Your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of Your wings. They feast on the abundance of Your house; You give them drink from Your river of delights. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.” (NIV)
