“Righteousness Shall Go Before Us”
righteousness will go before Him
by Dona Hake

Psalm 85:11-13 BRG Bible

” Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.  Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.”
My meditation today is upon a few words at the end of verse 13 in Psalm 85. “and shall set us in the way of his steps.” Oh that we would long to know that our feet are firmly planted, and walking within the footprints of our Master. As I meditated on this I began to think of a small child on the sands of a beach finding some big footsteps of his or her parents. Walking along, the child carefully places her feet inside the big footprint, and purposes to walk in them, and allow those footprints to lead them. So it is with us as we desire to cling to our Lord and follow Him closely. His footprints are established in truth and righteousness, and we too should desire to stay within our Lord’s imprints as we walk. They are rock solid, and as we purpose to walk within His footprints we will always be within the borders of His will for our lives. There is great comfort and strength in knowing that His righteousness goes before us!
Lord, we thank You this day in which we can set our hearts to live for You and serve You.   Oh that our feet would be set deep within Yours as we trust in You.  Help us to be mindful of keeping ourselves in the way of Your steps and not wandering away.   Even in those times that Your way may not make sense to us, help us to understand that Your ways are higher than our ways, and You understand the big picture of the work in our life.  In Jesus Name, amen!
