Psalm 37:27-29 Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever. 28 For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints. They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off. 29 The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever. #Bible
Turning away from evil is to do good. That is the only successful way to turn from evil.
When we do good, justice appears automatically, its the outcome of good, and as we read the Lord loves justice. God’s reaction is He won’t forsake His saints, showing good doer’s that we are His.
God’s saints are all that believe in His Son Jesus the Christ. No not just those, some man made religions have declared to be saints, but all believers in Jesus the Christ.
Preserved forever, this is good news, even the Gospel of our Lord Jesus the Christ. The idea here is we are hidden like a hen hides her chicks under her wings.
The wicked, those who do evil? Cut off is obviously separated from the saints. Even more, cut off from God the Creator of all things. To do evil is to prove you are not of God’s Family.
The Righteous not only inherit the land, but eternity with God. Also being hidden, even protected by God is not just here and now, but in eternity also, so that we don’t need to fear this human death. Death in this world is to open our eyes in eternity seeing Jesus face to face.
In all of this, we need to remember that God has our back. God is our shield of protection, our defense, our provider, prosperity, our everything both here and forever. Yes all we need in this life is Jesus the Christ our Justice. Praise God!
