This blog intends to promote the simple reading and explanation of Scripture. "Man shall not live by bread alone..." This means that there is more to living life than eating, working and sleeping. "but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God." God's word provides the nutrients we need to live a purposeful and obedient life. Verse for Today intends to feed this need.

Verse for Today - Psalm 33:4-5 (click to read about)
"For the word of the Lordis right,
And all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice;The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord."
Psalm 33 is remarkable on a number of levels. In recent years it has become a favorite of mine. It is subtitled in the NKJV "The Sovereignty of the Lord in Creation and History." Verses 4 and 5 follow a five-fold exhortation to worship and rejoice before the Lord. Verses 4 and 5 provide the "short" answer for why all of God's people should give glory to God. The "long" answer is really the remainder of the Psalm.
Now let's consider these two verses. The Lord Almighty and all that He does is impeccable... without sin. He is and is the source of truth and righteousness. These virtues (His virtues) are part of why we should worship and serve him. Can we trust God? Can we trust his words, will and commands? ABSOLUTELY! Listen to Deuteronomy 32:4:
"He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He."
These things cannot be said of anyone else. Trust and worship the Living God.
