Everything About God Says Strong
Last time, I wrote of God’s justice. It will rule one day. His day.
Your statutes, LORD, stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days. Psalm 93:5 NIV

Your decrees are very trustworthy;
holiness befits your house,
O LORD, forevermore. Psalm 93:5 ESV
Your testimonies are very sure;
Holiness adorns Your house,
O LORD, forever. NKJV
Your testimonies are fully confirmed;
Holiness befits Your house,
O LORD, forevermore. NASB
The rules you set down are completely reliable. Holiness aptly adorns your house, O LORD, forever. NET
The sure justice that is to come stands upon the solid holiness of our God. He is Who He says He is. He does what He says He will do. He is faithful and trustworthy in all and everything. As I learn to walk in the ways of the LORD, I feel that surety in my steps because He orders them. Everything about God is just, truthful, strong, perfect.
“The Rock, His work is perfect,
for all His ways are justice.
A God of faithfulness and without iniquity,
just and upright is He.” Deuteronomy 32:4

He is the Rock, His work is perfect;
For all His ways are justice,
A God of truth and without injustice;
Righteous and upright is He. NKJV
A rock is solid and strong. God is our Rock. He is our Stronghold. He is stable. He is upright and authoritative. That pillar above is strong and stable. It holds up so much.
And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night. The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people. Exodus 13:21-22

God, a pillar of strength. The pillars of cloud and fire held God. How much stronger can anything be?
Father God, You are my LORD. You are my Rock. You are strong and mighty. You have brought me from the depths of darkness and have loved me into Your Light, continuing to love me into the beauty of Your Light. Your Son is my Savior, the Light. I am most grateful and filled with respect for He is my Salvation. Thank You, Father, for standing firm in my weakness. You are my Refuge where I am protected. I know that Your justice is perfect and will come one day to this world just as I know that Your perfect way keeps me aligned with You when I obey. Lead me to Your Rock for it is higher than I. You are my Stronghold. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to You
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I,
for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy. Psalm 61:1-3
