Psalm 11:7 (Message)
“God’s business is putting things right; he loves getting the lines straight – setting us straight.
Once we’re standing tall,
we can look him straight in the eye.
So many people define God’s business as being a judge over imperfect people – who loves to mete out harsh punishments.
Nothing is further from the truth.
1. GOD PUTS THINGS RIGHT
God so loves humanity that His first response when Adam sinned – was to promise His only Son as our saviour.
God is in the business of putting things right.
2. GOD SETS THE BOUNDARIES STRAIGHT
God always straightens the path – and defines the boundaries – so we can return to His ways – and be clear about what He requires of us.
3. GOD SETS US STRAIGHT
Once God’s word and His ways are clear to you – He will help you walk in His ways and receive His amazing grace and favour.
If you ask God for help – He will set you straight.
Righteousness in Christ – is being justified and made straight before God.
4. GOD LIFTS UP OUR HEAD
The whole purpose of God setting us straight and upright in Him – is to lift our heads so we can gaze into His eyes – filled with love, acceptance and forgiveness.
Don’t hide yourself from God.
Don’t bow in shame – stand up in Christ.
5. GOD LOOKS US IN THE EYE
Lovers look each other in the eyes.
Face to face we can behold Him.
Jesus is the lover of our souls.
He wants you to come boldly to the throne of His grace and see His majesty, might and power – available to you.
GOD HAS MADE ALL THINGS RIGHT – IN CHRIST.
SO STAND TALL – AND SEE HIS GLORIOUS PLAN FOR YOUR FUTURE.
