What Is Good

 

I brought you up
and ransomed you

remember what
I’ve done

walking humbly
with Me

loving justice and
compassion.

**********

I remember what You have done, for You are with me.

***********

“For I brought you up from the land of Egypt, I redeemed you from the house of bondage; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.”

“O My people, remember now what Balak King of Moab counseled, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, from Acacia Grove to Gilgal, that you may know the righteousness of the LORD.”

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Micah 6:4,5,8. NKJV

Twists

 

Let me not practice
ignore or tolerate

anything in me
that’s not of You

keeping to
Your word and Your way

not twisting and turning
the Truth.

**********

I can respond with truth and love, for You are with me.

**********

“And I said. ‘Hear now, heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel
Is it not for you to know and administer justice?’ “

“Then they will cry to the Lord, but He will not answer them; instead, He will even hide His face from them at that time [withholding His mercy] because they have practiced and tolerated and ignored evil acts.”

“Now hear this, you heads of the house of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel, who hate and reject justice and twist everything that is straight . . .”

Micah 3:1,4,9 AMP

In Mercy

 

Pray and weep
for the oppressor

for those who extort
and despise

for My throne
is established in mercy

truth and justice
always arise.

Jesus establishes His throne in mercy.

“For the extortionist is at an end, devastation ceases. The oppressors are consumed out of the land. In mercy the throne will be established; and One will sit on it in truth, in the tabernacle of David, judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness. ” Isaiah 16:4,5 NKJV

The Increase

 

I will increase
My Kingdom

and there will be
no end

of the joy
and justice

of which
I intend.

Jesus establishes the increase.

“You have multiplied the nation and increased its joy. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgement and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:3,7 NKJV

As White As Snow

 

Come now and let us
reason together
so you learn to do good
and plead for the widow

though your sins are like scarlet
I will forgive you
and they shall be made
just as white as the snow.

Jesus establishes willingness.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. “Come now, and let us reason together”, says the LORD, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land . . .” Isaiah 1:17,18,19 NKJV

Maintained

 

I’ll maintain your cause
when you’re afflicted
and bring justice
when you’re poor

and you shall dwell
in My presence
and give thanks
forevermore.

A laid down life has a caring and just God.

“I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted and justice for the poor. Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name; the upright shall dwell in Your presence.” Psalm 140:12,13 NKJV

Awesome Majesty

“He comes from the north as golden splendor;
With God is awesome majesty.
. . .He is excellent in power,

In judgement and abundant justice;
He does not oppress.
Therefore men fear Him . . .”   Job 37:22-24

A majestic Holy just God IS a fearsome thing!

Oh Lord, help us remember not to fear those who judge us , are unjust and oppress . .. because we have You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Fearsome

Before His splendor
we fall down
and His majesty
reflects and surrounds
as He judges us plainly
justice in His hands
the same palms that were pierced
out of His love for man.
