Just a Thought for September 2September 2, 2015
The Psalms are replete with scriptures sharing God’s grace and truth from an Old Testament perspective. In Psalm 89:14, David shares a wonderful picture of God’s love and His hesed [his grace—mercy, kindness, lovingkindness] for you. “Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.” (KJV)
God’s judicial pronouncement of ‘not guilty’—because someone took your place—forever echoes God’s heart. It is in the real meaning of justice, the sense of a judicial pronouncement of innocence (Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Old Testament and New Testament Words). David’s declaration was fulfilled in Jesus because He came showing God’s eternal redemptive love for you and I.
It’s definitely time to rejoice because the throne of God is one of love, grace, mercy and truth. You are no longer under the condemnation of the law but you’re a new person, a child of God set free through His Son. Continue walking in this revelation.
Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ (John 1:17), and in Him you are righteous.
