God is God

“14Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
love and faithfulness go before you.”

~Psalm 89

I never have to wonder
At Your Will, Oh God,
I never have to fear
That You are above all things

For You sit in Your throne
Ruling Your creation as King
And You are always completely good
No sin ever has or ever will
Mar Your beautiful face

For You sit on Your throne
Ruling Your creation as King
And You are always just in all Your ways
You are fair and zealous to do good
The wicked are punished
The good are rewarded
And You fulfill all Your vows

Without these things
You would not be God

And going before You
To adorn Your holiness
There is love that knows no bounds
There is love that knows no end
You are filled to the brim
With love for Your people
For them You have bestowed mercy
Sacrificing Yourself
To fulfill that justice be done
How great is Your love!

And going before You
To adorn Your holiness
There is faithfulness that knows no end
There is faithfulness that never fades away
To deny a promise is to deny Yourself
To deny Your beloved is to deny Yourself
You are ever faithful to Your subjects
Ever thinking of those who love You
Whom You love oh so deeply

Love was not required of You
To bestow on sinners such as us
But love You given
And You are ever faithful
Yet You are holy, ever holy
Without it You would not be God
I do not have to worry
I do not have to fear
You are a righteous,
You are a Just
You are a loving,
You are a Faithful
GOD

(Excerpts from Romans 8)

“28And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.”

“38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

“1Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”

“22We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.”

“26In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.”

“5Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.”
