All the Paths  of the LORD

Different people  take things differently.     We all  have our own  likes and dislikes.     This even extends  to our attitudes  and feelings  towards God.     Some cannot stand  to be told  that it is wrong  to lie,  steal,  slander,  love idolatry,  or live  in any of the sins  that God’s word  condemns.     They staunchly feel their life  is their own  to live as they please  —  and that  not even their Creator  has a right  to tell them how to live.

Those who love  and appreciate guidance  from above  have a totally different attitude.     Psalm 25:10 therefore  says,

All the paths  of the LORD  are lovingkindness  and truth
To those  who keep His covenant  and His testimonies.

The people  who love God’s guidance  are  “those  who keep His covenant  and His testimonies”.     God’s  “covenant”  is the agreement  God made  with the people  —  God promised  His faithful love  and protection,  along with forgiveness,  a Savior  from sin,  and eternal life  to all  who would put their trust  in Him.     God’s  “testimonies”  include all the evidence  in history  and in creation  that testify  to the truths  that God alone  is God  —  that He alone  is LORD of lords  and God of gods.

The people who  “keep His covenant  and His testimonies”  are those who honestly honor  and worship the LORD  just because  there is tons  of evidence  that the LORD is the one-and-only Creator  and Redeemer  —  and that God  truly does  faithfully,  and lovingly care for all  who trust  in Him.

These are the people  who know  in their heart  of hearts  that all the paths  of the LORD  are lovingkindness  and truth”.     The “paths  of the LORD” are all the LORD’s ways  of being  —  what God is like  in the things He created  —  what God is like  in how He cares for us  —  what God is like  in the commandments He set down for us  to learn the difference between good and evil  —  what God is like  in faithfully forgiving our sins  through faith  in Christ our Savior.

In all that God  has created,  these people see love,  wisdom,  almighty power,  and faithfulness  in caring.     What these people see  is marvelously true.     In all that happens  in life,  God is caring for us.     In all the commandments  God set down for us  there is the wisdom  of love  and goodness  —  and a protection  from the evil results  of living an evil life.     In all that God did  to provide us  with a Savior  for the forgiveness  of our sins,  there is a most faithful  and sacrificial love  that gives us eternal life.

In all these ways,  God’s children know  for sure  that all the paths  of the LORD  are lovingkindness  and truth”.     This gives us rest  and peace,  so we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  it is so wonderful  to know  that special love  in all Your ways.     Keep us close  to Your heart.”

Love,
Margaret
