Psalm 125:4 (AMP) Do good, O Lord, to those who are good And to those who are upright in their hearts..
Beloved, actions have consequences. I would be a poor father if I encouraged disobedience by positively reinforcing it with blessing. However, I’m not one who is cruel or vindictive. So resist the urge to see Me as such when experiencing moments of trial.
I delight to bless My children, so if you find yourself in the fires of testing, trust that I AM with you even in their midst. Whether the situation is one of your own making or simply an opportunity for growth, your response to the experience determines the fruit that will come forth.
Even in the most difficult trials, there is blessing to be had. Thus you are to count them all joy (James 1:2), and embrace the opportunities to grow your character when they come knowing you will not be shaken as you rest in Me, for I AM with you through it all.
Psalm 125:1-5 (AMP) Those who trust in and rely on the Lord [with confident expectation] Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but remains forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the Lord surrounds His people From this time forth and forever. For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land of the righteous, So that the righteous will not reach out their hands to do wrong. Do good, O Lord, to those who are good And to those who are upright in their hearts. But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways [in unresponsiveness to God], The Lord will lead them away with those who do evil. Peace be upon Israel.
