Everything God does is just and fair

He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is! 

…let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will know… how good and pleasing and perfect His will really is. 

But those who brazenly violate the LORD’s will…blaspheme the LORD, and they must be cut off from the community. Since they have treated the LORD’s word with contempt and deliberately disobeyed his commands, they must…suffer the consequences of their guilt.  

The tassels will remind you of the commands of the LORD, and that you are to obey His commands instead of following your own desires and going your own ways , as you are prone to do.  

Oh, what a wonderful God we have! How great are his riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his methods! —Your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you save, O LORD.  

Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. 

Deut. 32:4 NLT; Rom.12:2 NLT; Numbers 15:30-31 NLT; Numbers 15:39 NLT; Rom.11:33 NLT; Ps.36:6 ESV; Ps. 25:5 NLT

What a counter-cultural mindset–God is always right, His ways always best.  It cuts against the grain of my own selfish heart, when things aren’t quite going as I’d like…And yet, the truth is here (whether I choose to believe it or not) and herein lies my salvation.  God is always right.  I can trust Him with my life. Amen?

  1. We’re such a democratic people and do not respond well to Theocracy.
    Always so refreshing to read your thoughts, Linda.
    Trusting that all is well and that you are making progress in your faithful advocacy and support for your mum.

  2. Michele, I’ve just finished reading The Orphan Master’s Son (A.Johnson), a grueling modern fiction of life under ‘The Dear Leader’ (N.Korean dictator). I do wonder if the North Koreans who become believers have a much better regard than I for what it means to belong to the LORD unquestioningly. I have a strong suspicion they have a far greater fear of God than the average soul in a happy democracy… As for me, I must keep my nose in the Book believing what I read there and saying ‘no’ to my own inclinations to think my ways might sometimes be a better idea.

    And yes, Michele, the advocacy for my mom continues, and with summer so much beholding of flowers that I am (literally) drawn away from writing… Thank you for your faithfulness!
