And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away.

Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

But the way of the wicked will perish.

But its leaves will be green,
And it will not be anxious in a year of drought
Nor cease to yield fruit.

Upright Dawn

Psalm 112:4
Even in darkness light dawns{arises} for the upright,
For the gracious and compassionate and righteous one.

Proverbs 4:18
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
Shining ever brighter till the full light of day.


It’s only by the LORD’s grace, compassion and lovingkindness that we can stand upright before Him. Only when we have our faces turned toward the Son can we continue to walk uprightly on the path of righteousness.


The righteous & upright are commanded to rejoice and praise the LORD as they walk and stand! Rejoice and feel the Son shine rising on your up turned face! Let it fill you up!

Psalm 64:10    Let the righteous rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in Him; let all the upright in heart praise Him!


Be Lifted Up!

Psalm 7:10   My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.

All you who are bowed down, weary, faint
Lift up your head to the Son
Lift up your heads, O you gates of praise. –Isa 60:18

Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart. –Ps 32:11

Be lifted up!
Open the door for the King of glory to come in.

Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is He, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty— He is the King of glory.
Selah –Ps 24:9-10

For its only as you lift up your head
And keep your face turned towards the Son
That you will be strengthened and revived
Lifted up to stand upright.

Psalm 12:5    “Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, Now I will arise,” says the LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”
