Today's Favorite Verse: Psalms 98:9

Today's Favorite Verse: Psalms 98:9
"Before the Lord; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity."

Equity - the quality of being fair and impartial.

This made me think of this..

"Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:"
(Acts 10:34)

and this..

"And for salvation I give unto you a commandment, for I have heard your prayers, and the poor have complained before me, and the rich have I made, and all flesh is mine, and I am no respecter of persons."
(Doctrine and Covenants 38:16)

I just sat and pondered on what an amazing site it will be to watch Christ judge the world. I think the world does not know the concept of being treated with equity, and no respecter of persons. I see unfairness all around me. When I witness the judgment of a just King I will have no doubt it was done in righteousness. I will know whatever my judgment will be it will be just.

Today's Favorite Verse: Psalms 97:10

Today's Favorite Verse: Psalms 97:10
"Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked."

This made me ponder on the words "Ye that love the Lord, hate evil". I am finding a very interesting measuring stick. The more I come to love the Lord the smaller my movie collection becomes. What I once thought acceptable, I can no longer watch. The parts that I could simply skip over, just ruin the whole movie for me. It troubles my soul and I find no pleasure. I guess I am being delivered out of the hands of the wicked movie industry. Simply because I can't sit there anymore. The interesting thing is I don't even miss it. I have found something far better.

Today's Favorite Verse: Psalms 96:7

Today's Favorite Verse: Psalms 96:7
"Give unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength."

When I read this I paused and thought "How can I give glory and strength to the Lord? I have no power to give Him." Which I knew that wasn't what the verse was saying but I had to sit and ponder on that thought. What I came away with it is that I need to acknowledge to others the Lord's glory and strength. As I testify of Him it is strengthening Him in their eyes. I then am giving Him glory, honor and strength.

Today's Favorite Verse: Psalms 95:7

Today's Favorite Verse: Psalms 95:7
"For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice."

I pondered on how it is always how my relationship is with the Lord today. I cannot "store up" righteousness for a pass on a later date. I can repent of past sins and become clean today, and he will remember them no more. The Lord loves me for who I am today, not yesterday, or tomorrow. He wants me to be consistent and always love and listen to Him. But his judgment is always here and now. That is a beautiful thing.
