People gather outside of their homes and discuss why peace is scarce these days, why our economic systems are collapsing 1 by 1 and devastation is at an all time high? Well, to read Psalm 85: 8-11 of the Old Testament is to be enlightened! Stating that peace will only be granted to those who are God’s faithful, when love and faithfulness meet that is when righteousness and peace are able to bond in a kiss of renewed victory! Will we for once (v.8), “listen to what God says,” and not surrender to the idolatry of surrounding wills asking us to leave truth behind for some lifeless imitation of God?
Surely as the earth continues in its despair, pockets of faithfulness will continue to emerge. It’s in these places that we shall seek to live if we want to taste heaven’s light upon our faces, and experience, once more, a harvest of healing!
Psalm 85: 8-11
“I will listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants- but let them not turn to folly. Surely his salvation is near those who fear him that his glory may dwell in our land. Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.”
