In Faithfulness and Truth

May 16, 2015

Psalm 33:1,4-5 AMP
1 Rejoice in the Lord, O you [uncompromisingly] righteous [you upright in right standing with God]; for praise is becoming and appropriate for those who are upright [in heart]. …

4 For the word of the Lord is right; and all His work is done in faithfulness.
5 He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the loving-kindness{goodness} of the Lord.

From Treasury of David:

  • All his works are done in truth. His work is the outflow of his word, and it is true to it.
  • To act truth as well as to utter it is divine. Let not children of God ever yield their principles in practice any more than in heart
  • God writes with a pen that never blots, speaks with a tongue that never slips, acts with a hand which never fails. Bless his name!
  • Adam Clarke:
    A fourfold argument for praise, from the truth, the faithfulness, the justice, and goodness of God:

    • For the word of the Lord is right.
    • All his works are done in truth.
    • He loveth righteousness and judgment.
    • The earth is full of his goodness.

Psalm 111:7-8 AMP
7 The works of His hands are [absolute] truth and justice [faithful and right]; and all His decrees and precepts are sure (fixed, established, and trustworthy).
8 They stand fast and are established forever and ever and are done in [absolute] truth and uprightness.

From Treasury of David:

  • Whatever the mighty Lord decrees,
    Shall stand for ever sure.
    The settled purpose of his heart
    To ages shall endure.
  • The works of God expound his word, in his works his word is often made visible.
  • Every action of a Christian ought to be one of Christ’s truths

Psalm 33:20-22 AMP
20 Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for the Lord; He is our Help and our Shield.
21 For in Him does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in His holy name.
22 Let Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping for You.

The Root of Faith

Psalm 33:20-21 … Our soul waits(earnestly in expectation) for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name.

Psalm 9:10Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek You.

Those who know Your name
Will trust You
And love You, Lord Jesus. -Ps 91:14
In You their hearts rejoice!

Quote: Trust Means Joy by Spurgeon
The root of faith produces the flower of heart-joy

Lord Jesus, let all who take refuge in You be glad; Let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You. For surely, O LORD, You bless the righteous; You surround them with Your favor as with a shield. -Ps 5:11-12
