Friday's Five - Psalm 85

Psalm 85 v 10-14
Unfailing love and truth have met together.
Righteousness and peace have kissed!
Truth springs up from the earth,
and righteousness smiles down from heaven.
Yes, the Lord pours down his blessings.
Our land will yield its bountiful harvest.
Righteousness goes as a herald before him,
preparing the way for his steps.

God is the champion of restoration.

His heart is constantly towards his people. Mercy and grace are showered on us in a stream of everlasting goodness.

He will never withhold any good thing from us.

We have a new identity in Christ. Our spirit is born again and is perfect, holy and righteous. All the time.

Every day, every minute of every day, every second God sees us as righteous and we are His righteousness.

He is the God who lives inside of you.

Don't focus on your weakness and your old sinful man. Your old man is dead and buried. Instead, focus on His grace, activate the spirit man and become aware of the abundant, holy life inside of you.

You are totally forgiven, eternally saved and overwhelming loved. 

You have an overflow of the goodness and grace of God cascading out of your life.

Let it burst out in a torrent of joy, freedom and abundant love.

Your life is hid with Christ In God.

Here is Psalm 85, the writer confirms the showers of his blessings towards us: -

  1. Unfailing love and truth have met together – God’s unfailing love and truth have met together in Christ. He has poured his love and truth into our hearts and we can know the fullness of all he has done.
  2. Righteousness and peace have kissed! – We have been made righteous before God and God has given us his peace. When we concentrate and meditate on God’s grace and our new identity in Christ, we have an overwhelming peace in our life. When we forget we are righteous and go back to feeling condemned and guilty we lose our peace. 
  3. The Lord pours down his blessings. – We have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Every blessing God gives has been poured out to us by His grace.
  4. Land will yield its bountiful harvest. – Our hearts are the fields ripe for the harvest of his love. We have overwhelming joy as we rest in all God has provided for us.
  5. Righteousness preparing the way for his steps. – We can walk in confidence and security knowing that Christ lives in us and he is guiding our steps. God will lead us as we live by the new spirit life awaken inside of us.

What amazing promises in this Psalm?

God gives us:-
His righteousness, 
His truth,
His unfailing love,
His peace
His blessings
His harvest
His guidance

All free, all unmerited and by His grace.
