“For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us.”
The Lord’s rule is a part of His divine order and as Creator of all things His rule is just and righteous. He is the Ancient of Days and has served as law giver and judge from the beginning of time. He will continue to maintain His sovereign position until the end of time.
The God who oversees our actions, behaviors and motives in the beginning, sees them at the end. It’s frustrating and possibly frightening when medical reports get lost in the shuffle of transient doctors and a personal, medical history disappears into the archives only to leave a new doctor without the whole story of our health. God isn’t transient. He doesn’t move, or change. He doesn’t lose our information and our history doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. He knows us well! He knows the end from the beginning and will judge us accordingly! Our King, our Messiah our Ancient of Days will reign and will usher in a just world. He is our saving grace, our protection and our salvation. His Spirit will change a heart and one day will transform the world into a place of righteousness, justice and peace.
I think this is so important to grasp a hold of in light of our forgiveness, and /or our desire to retaliate and get even with sweet revenge. We so often think that we sit alone in our hurts and unfair dealings. As God knows our hearts, motives, and actions, we can be assured that He also knows the heart motives and actions of those who have offended, betrayed, spread rumors or lied about us. He doesn’t loose track of who does what, and why they do it? God is just and righteous. He will grant mercy and justice when and where it’s needed, as well as judge the unforgiving spirit of ourselves or another. This knowledge of the just God should take a burden off our shoulders. Our offender/s will not get off free under our Sovereign God’s rule. Then again, nor will we if we are to blame but live in denial.
So the whole kit-n-kaboodle just landed in your lap and what do you do with that? Oh yeah, We trip over bumps in the road and find it ever so difficult to get up and begin again. To keep going! To persevere! Just to stay in the race! Well, you and I and we and us, we just need to go deeper with God today. We just need time out to rest. So rest then! Rest for a time and saturate your beautiful self in that awesome blessing of His grace, and aren’t we just so amazed and so glad for His precious gift of unmerited favor and sweet mercy? Oh the kindness of it! of Him! To dispense it out so lavishly over our faults and our failures. So when the whole load hits our lap we can ease it with all the grace that He gives to sustain us and all the love that He has to lavish over us. Ah, yes today beautiful soul, tuck yourself safely under His wings of protection and let them carry you over the whole kit-n-kaboddle of it all. Go with Him, follow Him and let Him lead you into obedience.
Say today with the Psalmist in Psalm 119:57, “Lord you are mine! I promise to obey Your words! With all my heart I want your blessings. Be merciful as You promised. I ponder the direction of my life, and I turned to follow Your laws. I will hurry without delay to obey your commands.”

So when the voice of confusion does its rant against your mind and steals your peace, and leaves you feeling on the brink of nothing but chaos and failure, you need to call a “time out” while you wait on the Lord for His divine direction. His voice won’t compete with the noise of your chaotic surroundings or the noise levels of your panic, fear or worry. He wants your trust! Your complete and honest trust for your problem. Yeah, He works in that calmness of total surrender when noisy confusion dissipates and melts into tranquil moments with Him and His sovereignty. He’s all-knowing and all-powerful. All authority is His and lies in His capable hands. He saves, He keeps, He sustains. He heals, He cleanses and He forgives. Who more could mentor you through the tough decisions and choices that lie ahead? He’s promised to guide and lead the way for His children. Psalm 32:8-9 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you.” So ~ beautiful soul, don’t hide behind confusion and stubborn will. Do not let one more thing weight you down! Not one thing! Go to your maker! Get with Him for counsel and help in your time of need. You’ll find unconditional love there! You’ll find Him a God of mercy, grace and compassion. He waits to hear from you. He waits to quiet the noise of your confusion, and heal your wounds and mend your brokenness. He waits to open new doors of opportunity and the grace to rise to the challenge. Trust Him!
“Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation, and my hope is in You all day long.”
“You, in Your great compassion, Did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, To guide them on their way, Nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go.”

Oh yes, He mends, He repairs, He restores and yes, He breaks, but only to remold a stronger character and spiritual maturity within our beautiful souls. Sometimes the break is just in two and sometimes it’s a fragmented heap of debris and ashes left at our feet. But He does care and He is there for the fix ~ the divine fix that goes right to the heart and the deep root of the problem and begins to heal the valuable groundwork of our brokenness. It’s not just a band-aid that God uses to make it all better but He reaches down with a love that’s so unconditional it can make us blush deep within our undeserving selves. He reaches down with an amazing grace beyond our comprehension and a rich mercy going beyond anything we can fathom. Why us? Why Me? But He does! He goes all the way beyond the call of duty to take compassion on us in our heaps of trouble and fragmented broken spirits. Why Us? Why Me? Simply because we’re valuable to Him and He cares. Allow Him to pick up the remains and fashion them back together in a beautiful, brilliant way ~ soothed and saturated with the oil of His healing, filling and cushioning all the jagged edges of all the shattered pieces! Oh that healing oil of grace is a beautiful thing to the one in need. Reach out for it today and accept it, if it’s what you need to make your beautiful soul more beautiful ~ more strong ~ more healed ~ more loved. He’s got you today, beyond the brokenness of the cross and back again. Take Him up on it!
The LORD is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
