Psalm 72

Solomon's very first words caught my attention today. "Give your love of justice to the king, O God, and righteousness to the king's son" (Psalm 72:1, NLT). The verses that follow then seem to support this request with examples and illustrations of what Solomon is thinking this looks like for him and his kingdom. Well I'm certainly not a king (or queen) and I'm guessing you're not either, but this same request of loving God's justice and righteousness should be on our hearts as well.

So what does loving God's justice and righteousness mean? What might it look like put into practice in your life? And how do we make this a desire of our heart? Tami

If we love God's justice and righteousness, we'll seek to reflect it and display it to others. This means that we'll act as our righteous and just God acts--the One who didn't spare anything, but gave His Only Son for us. For us, these things manifest themselves in Jesus command for us to "love (y)our neighbor as (y)ourself."

As we draw closer to Him, as the Holy Spirit conforms us more and more to the image of Christ, this desire will be all the greater in our hearts and lives.

Read this a few times, and in various versions of the Bible; one impression I came away with - was that David sure knew who was in control and in charge! In vs 12 & 13 David makes mention of the needy, weak, poor, and helpless. That's how we are to see our lives. And along with that David saw & makes mention of God's greatness throughout the Psalm, and we need to see God's greatness too!

Our "littleness" & His "Greatness"!!

David knew his God, the one true God. David also knew of God's justice and righteousness. He knew this when he was king and all of the disfunction that was within his family and all the other issues that he dealt with. David feared God and trusted God. Today we do not fear God and completely trust Him. If we did I believe things would be completely different in the church, in our country and in the world. We rely on self and technology not God. I think when we completely trust and fear God as individuals others will see God in us and want what we have.

In writing for my book today, I wrote something that explains this beautifully, but I will write from my heart first. God is love, love us so completely,that we were created in god's image as spirit, mind and body; that we can co-create with and as God.

God love us so unconditionally and when we intellectually get this at a very deep level, and become aware of our oneness of God, and the universe. This only occurs after continous study, prayer, and meditaion, after this practiced continously, then comes a born again experience, and a feeling of love, peace,joy and harmony comes within (heaven)this brings about a deep inner peace. in my book, because i had this beautiful experience, I will inform how humanity can create peace within. When the majority of mankind gets it, peace will be spreaded all over the world.
