Verse for Today – Psalm 33:4,5 (click to read)

For the word of the Lord is right,

And all His work is done in truth.
He loves righteousness and justice;

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

Read all of Psalm 33

 

 Psalm 33 is remarkable on a number of levels.  In recent years it has become a favorite of mine.  It is subtitled in the NKJV “The Sovereignty of the Lord in Creation and History.”  Verses 4 and 5 follow a five-fold exhortation to worship and rejoice before the Lord.  Verses 4 and 5 provide the “short” answer for why all of God’s people should give glory to God.  The “long” answer is really the remainder of the Psalm.

 


 

Now let’s consider these two verses.    The Lord Almighty and all that He does is impeccable… without sin.  He is and is the source of truth and righteousness.  These virtues (His virtues) are part of why we should worship and serve him.  Can we trust God?  Can we trust his words, will and commands?   ABSOLUTELY!  Listen to Deuteronomy 32:4:

 

 

“He is the Rock, His work is perfect;
For all His ways are justice,
A God of truth and without injustice;
Righteous and upright is He.”

 

 

These things cannot be said of anyone else.  Trust and worship the Living God.
