The Journey with Ron Moore

The Light of His Presence | Psalm 89:5-18

Today's Passage: Psalm 89:5-18
Key Verses: Psalm 89:14-18

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, LORD. They rejoice in your name all day long; they celebrate your righteousness. For you are their glory and strength, and by your favor you exalt our horn. Indeed, our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.

Everything God does is right. He is pure in thought, desire and action. God can do no wrong. Everything God does is just. He actions are based on his righteousness. His verdict is always true. There is never a hint of impropriety with God.

Because God is righteous and just we can walk in the light of his presence. When we trust in Jesus as the only way to have a personal relationship with the living God, his Spirit indwells us. The Holy Spirit accompanies us on the journey. We are never alone. He illumines our paths with his presence.

God's righteousness, justice and constant presence give the believer reason to celebrate. God is the One we worship. God is the One who gives us strength. God is our shield of protection. We can rejoice in our personal relationship with the living God from sunup to sundown, and throughout eternity.

Father, help us to walk in the light of your presence. There are times when we are tempted by the darkness. The sights and sounds are alluring. We feel pulled from the path. We need your help to stay on the path that is lighted by your presence. Don't let us drift. In Jesus' name. Amen.
