Morning by Morning, September 7 - Righteousness and Justice in the High Court of our Land

Morning by Morning, September 7 - Righteousness and Justice in the High Court of our Land
 
Good morning, Lord Jesus. King of kings and Lord of lords, come rule and reign in my heart and my life this day.  ... 
 
"Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; steadfast love and faithfulness go before You" (Psalm 89:11). 
 
As the eyes of our nation and the prayers of our hearts are on the confirmation hearings of the next Supreme Court Justice, I'm reminded that justice is very important You, as is righteousness. Righteousness and justice are the very foundation of Your throne; and we are to pray that it be so on earth -- here in us and here in our nation -- as it is in heaven. 
 
Those who sit in judgment from the bench of the highest court in our land have the power to uphold the righteousness and justice written into our laws on the foundation of our constitution. You call these men and women into their place of authority to walk in integrity and to rule righteously with the heart and wisdom of "the One who judges justly" (1 Peter 2:23). "Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling" (Psalm 2:10-11 NKJV).  
 
And we are to pray for them -- that the ones You have chosen will be confirmed and the ones who are confirmed will walk in Your ways. "First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercession, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:1-4). 
 
While our senators we elected to represent our voices have their part to vote, we have our part to humble ourselves, to seek Your face, and to pray (2 Chronicles 7:14). This is how we "stand in the gap before (You) on behalf of the land" through intercession and prayer -- standing in the gap between heaven and earth, between righteousness and unrighteousness, between justice and injustice, as we stand in You and allow You to stand through us (Ezekiel 22:30; 1 Corinthians 12:27 and 16:13 NKJV). 
 
We have a voice. Let our voices be heard as we vote and as we pray, not idly standing by, but standing in the gap. You call us to be active, not passive, to be engaged and not detached, to "seek the peace of the city" where we have been positioned according to Your will and Your purposes "and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace (we) will have peace" (Jeremiah 29:7 NKJV). 
 
With our voice, with our prayers, and with our actions as Your people who are called by Your name, our obedience and faithfulness to Your commands remain:  "He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:8 NKJV). Lord, let it be so in our hearts and in our land. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
 
 
 
 
My Friend, I pray you are stirred to stand in the gap on your knees and in your heart for our land as the Holy Spirit leads you, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
