DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
God Will Judge In Righteousness
- I will give thanks unto Jehovah with my whole heart;
I will show forth all thy marvellous works.
2 I will be glad and exult in thee;
I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High.
3 When mine enemies turn back,
They stumble and perish at thy presence.
4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause;
Thou sittest in the throne judging righteously.
5 Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked;
Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 The enemy are come to an end, they are desolate for ever;
And the cities which thou hast overthrown,
The very remembrance of them is perished.
7 But Jehovah sitteth as king for ever:
He hath prepared his throne for judgment;
8 And he will judge the world in righteousness,
He will minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness.
Our God is a Judge. The Bible says He sat on the throne judging in righteousness (v. 4). Know that a time is coming at the end of the age, when God will sit on the great white throne, judging all men according to their deeds. That judgment is the mother of all judgments. No one who has done evil will be able to escape. Jesus will no longer solicit or advocate for anyone any longer at that time. God will judge in righteousness and no one can pervert justice or bribe their way through. This is the reason why you need to make your ways right with God now when you still have the opportunity.
Point of Emphasis: God will judge the world in righteousness and uprightness
Prayer Point: Lord, I will receive Your mercy in judgment.
