Justice Thunder Down

Sanctuary–

1 : a place (as a church or a temple) for worship

2 : a place of refuge and protection

Welcome to my sanctuary this week. Meditating on the beauty He’s created and the power of His words…


justice-thunder

Amos 5:24Β (VOICE)

Here’s what I want: Let justice thunder down like a waterfall;
let righteousness flow like a mighty river that never runs dry.

 


Your Kingdom come, Your will be done.
You desire justice and righteousness.
Let my life align with Your desires!

 


“Night and day I pondered until I saw the connection between the justice of God and the statement that ‘the just shall live by his faith.’ Then I grasped that the justice of God is that righteousness by which through grace and sheer mercy God justifies us through faith. Thereupon I felt myself to be reborn and to have gone through open doors into paradise.”

–Martin Luther

 



What’s your sanctuary this week? What thought, verse, etc. are you meditating on?

  1. And I’m a waterfall addict. I saw Multnomah Falls when I was a kid and I’ve been seeing it as often as possible in the NW. You made me smile, as usual. Ya dun good to grab my attention and my heart. And the photo, the Word and the other word section was a treat to see. Thanks much, Jason. πŸ˜‰

    • Love them! And you can’t tell from this picture, but it was a big, loud one. My favorite! Thanks so much, Joanne. I appreciate you!

  2. I love the Luther quote & I’ve always been fascinated by waterfalls! Linked up with you at Sunday Stillness — hope you’ll stop by Saved by Grace for a visit! God bless.

    • Awesome--yes! Thank you, Laurie. πŸ™‚

  3. I am struck by the inevitability of the waterfall and the river in the verse from Amos. Gravity makes the waters flow and tumble downhill. Let His kingdom come!

    This week I’ve been thinking about how, even though God is all powerful, He deals with us so gently and tenderly.

    • Oh, I love that! His justice is inevitable and imminent. Amen. Thank you, Constance.
