Scripture: Psalm 89:14
Psalm 89 reveals God’s nature. It uncovers one subject that is closest to His heart. The pillars of His Throne reveal His heart best. Psalm 89:14 tells us, “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face.” God is holy and righteous! Out of that righteousness and holiness, judgment flows on those who choose the unrighteous and the unholy path. Only judgment can bring a correction. Mercy and truth are the application of righteousness and justice. Jesus made us Kings, which means we have an assignment to walk in righteousness and to dispense justice from the Throne. A refusal to do that is to back away from the Kingly call, and one day we will give an account for passivity. Every one of us will stand before the judgment seat of Christ and give an account for what we did with our Kingly assignment. I do not want to stand there with empty hands and be speechless. I want to stand there and be able to say, I shouldered the Kingly call and did the best I could to dispense Your justice! Moving God’s hand on a treasonous politician who is attempting to destroy your nation is a very great and godly assignment! David would have asked God to take such an enemy directly to the grave! We should be asking for the same thing!
