One Who Reverences the Lord

Jesus word

Psalm 112:7
He will not fear evil tidings; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.

This scripture speaks of the person who fears (reverences) the Lord, who delights in His commandments. This individual is gracious (shows mercy) and lends.

When he hears an evil report or a bad rumor, he is not shaken. He has a quiet confidence, a security in his Lord, who is the ever-existing One.

As I grow older, I find my response when hearing bad news, is a quiet, “Jesus.” He is as close as the whisper of His name. It’s my invitation for Him to enter the situation; to do what needs to be done in order to right the wrong.

After all, Romans 12:19 says, “Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.”

Lord Jesus, I thank You
I don’t have to be in the judging business.
I’m only called to reverence You,
and let You do the rest.
