Because  Of Your Truth

When a powerful truth  hits us  because it is so obvious  and awesome,  we are stopped  in our tracks  and don’t dare  go against it.     In some cases,  a person realizes  that  to go against it  would bring  a certain,  condemning judgment  that would show us  to be a liar  and  that we are much  too afraid  to face.     In other cases,  a person realizes  an awesome,  glorious fact  that brings  a sure joy  and confidence  to put their whole trust  in that truth.

This joy  and confidence  is what made the writer of Psalm 115  to say  in verse 1,

Not  to us,  O  LORD,  not  to us,
But  to Your name  give glory
Because  of Your lovingkindness,  because  of Your truth.

This psalmist  was awe struck  with the almighty  “glory”“lovingkindness”,  and  “truth”  of the LORD’s  whole being.     Absolutely nothing  can compare  to the love  of God.     Nothing can compare  to His glory  in all  of His creation  and  to His glory  in heaven.     And,  nothing  can compare  to God’s  most glorious  eternal  “truth”.

Because  of the  “truth”  of God’s power,  love,  glory,  and faithfulness,  He was able  to promise  a Savior  from sin  in Genesis  —  and keep His promises  over thousands  of years,  down to the most exact details.     That’s  in addition  to all His glory  in everything  He created  —  and the miracles  that cause  His creation  to be sustained.

We should not desire  to receive  any sort  of glory  for our puny efforts.     That is totally ridiculous  in comparison  to the fact  that God  has made us  and given us  our abilities.     We don’t have anything  to brag about.     We’re just a part  of God’s  creation.

Facing  the truth  of our existence,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for all  Your blessings.”

Love,
Margaret
