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?
