LESSONS OF JOB
(Part 9)

LIKE FATHER, LIKE CHILDREN

Today's psalm once again emphasizes our 2010 theme for us. "You, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth," (Ps 97:9a), and "justice and right are the foundation of his throne." (Ps 97:2b). The Almighty! Just and righteous is He.

Once again we confront the reality of our Almighty God. He is awesome. "Fire goes before him; lightning illumines the world; the mountains melt like wax before the Lord, the earth sees and trembles." (Ps 97:3a,5a,4). He is "Lord of all the earth" (Ps 97:5b). God is "exalted far above all gods" (Ps 97:9b), and "all gods bow down before (Him)" (Ps 97:7c). There is none like Him. Awesome is He in His majesty. The Almighty!

But our awesome and Almighty God is not above getting involved in our lives. He is not unmindful of our struggles and afflictions. He is not unconcerned about our well-being, especially given the darkness and evil in the world. "The Lord loves those who hate evil, protects the lives of the faithful, rescues them from the hand of the wicked." (Ps 97:10). These actions are about His justice and righteousness. God opposes the unrighteous, and God acts justly toward the faithful, giving them the love, protection and salvation that they deserve.

And if we are to be truly God's children, if we are to manifest the image and likeness of God by which we were created, if we are to follow in the very footsteps of Jesus, then we need to grow in becoming more like our God. We are to be holy as God is holy, we are to be merciful as the Father is merciful, we are to be obedient to God as Jesus was to the Father, we are to carry our cross as Jesus carried his cross, we are to love others as God has loved us. God is just and righteous, and so should we be. "Light dawns for the just; gladness, for the honest of heart." (Ps 97:11).

With such an awesome God who is just and righteous, all can truly rejoice. "The Lord is king; let the earth rejoice; let the many islands be glad." (Ps 97:1). In our reverential fear, humbled in His presence, purified by suffering, growing in justice and righteousness, we can only be filled with joy, as we bow down in worship before our Almighty God. "Rejoice in the Lord, you just, and praise his holy name." (Ps 97:12).

God bless you all.
