Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. – (Psalm 97:2b, HCSB)
Goodness and justice make His kingdom strong. – (Psalm 97:2b, ERV)
Right and justice anchor His rule. – (Psalm 97:2b, MSG)
His throne of glory rests upon a foundation of righteousness and justice. – (Psalm 97:2b, TPT)
The throne of God is established on Him being just and righteous. Glory and honor are His, for He is good and fair. Because God is these things and so much more, He deserves our worship with reverence. When we are stuck in struggles, we must remember who reigns. Though we may not see resolve in the time frame we desire, it does not mean that God is not working on our behalf. Often, it is only after we have made it through the trying time that we can look back and see how clearly He was our help and our hope to make things new. His ongoing faithfulness reminds us that He is forever good and just. May we ever seek Him and praise Him in all things, for He is right and just and loves us as His own children.
The Lord God, He reigns,
He is right and just;
Hope and salvation,
Worthy of all trust.
His throne, established,
On all that is right;
Justice comes from Him,
Creator of light.
May we ever seek,
Throughout all our days;
And give God glory,
For His faithful ways.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are always right and just, even when our circumstances or surroundings are not. Thank You that You are ever moving on our behalf, even when we are unaware. Forgive us for our fears and doubts, for Your justice is not dependent on what we can see. Teach us to trust You to move in all things, and to know that You will have the final say, regardless of what we see now. Show us how to love those around us faithfully as You do. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we praise You establishing Your throne of what is right and just, and for being forever faithful to all who seek You. Amen.
