Nine Inspiring Verses From Psalms

God Is Still On The Throne

Our lives can be filled with uncertainty. And uncertainty can rob us of peace and joy, especially when we have been wronged. In fact, holding onto peace and security in our lives can be hard, unless we have an anchor. But an anchor is only as good as the chain that holds it fast to us. Fortunately, God has given us both a solid anchor and a chain. We hold to Jesus as our anchor and the promises in His Word are the chain that links us. It is hard to remember when we are wronged that God is on the throne. So many times it does not feel like there is much purpose, order, and logic to all the happenings in our lives. Getting fired from a job, divorce, theft, betrayal - all these can cloud our mind with doubt and frustration. But the Scripture constantly reminds us that God is on the throne, in control, and active in our lives. And although the ancient reader may not have realized how big creation is, the Bible declares that "everything in heaven and earth is" God's. We can be sure that God is in control and He has a Plan and Purpose for your life. So follow along and claim these Scriptures from Psalms that God is in control and works on our behalf for justice to prevail:

Our Just God:

For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; the upright will see his face. Psalm 11:7 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. Psalm 33:5 Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep. You, LORD, preserve both people and animals. Psalm 36:6 Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. Psalm 45:6 And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for he is a God of justice. Psalm 50:6 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. Psalm 89:14 Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Psalm 97:2 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. Psalm 103:6 I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy. Psalm 140:12

Final Thoughts:

Psalms 89 tells us that every action of God is motivated by love and faithfulness. He is not motivated by hatred or malice. He is not stricken with greed or selfish ambition. His works are geared toward your good. So if you are wronged, know that God is working on your behalf. God will be working for your betterment and the enrichment of others. Since justice, peace, and righteousness motivate God, His actions will lead you to greater peace, joy, and contentment. So being able to be patient and willing to do as He prompts is paramount. And as you learn His Ways, you will be more able to discern His Voice. So grow your heart to love the needy, oppressed, down cast, and struggling. Learn to love as He loves. As you go through hard times, remember your experience well so that you can comfort those when you reach a more stable place. If God can build character and compassion in you, your wrongs and betrayal will produce a light for others to find peace. And know that just as the seasons come and go, your hard time will pass as well. God brings hard times into our lives to refine us. The question is, will the hard times produce good fruit in us?
