Daily Read – Jeremiah 26:1-27:22; 2 Thessalonians 3:1-18; Psalm 85:1-13; Proverbs 25:16
Mercy and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good;
And our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before Him,
And shall make His footsteps our pathway.
The spiritual realm dramatically affects the natural realm. In My Kingdom, it is never about mercy and truth flowing independently; it is about both beautifully blending and flowing together. Mercy without truth enables and can embolden wrong behavior; however, truth without mercy can quench and discourage.
Those who are led by My Spirit are the sons of God and bring forth miraculous fruit. As you operate in mercy and truth from the place of the Spirit, you will discover a beautiful relationship and balance between them. Truth will spring out of your land, job, family, and relationships producing 30, 60, and even 100 times in abundant fruit.
There is a marriage between righteousness and peace. You cannot separate these two Kingdom attributes for I have eternally joined them. As you live righteously before Me, Shalom peace covers you like a canopy, sheltering you with healing, restoration, and completeness. Peace walks side by side with righteousness. The two have kissed each other.
I am righteous and I observe all things from heaven. I see your life of surrendered love and I know that your heart is upright. I will bless you with good because all good and perfect gifts come from Me, the Father of lights. My righteousness walks before you making a clear and distinct pathway.
If you walk in My footprints, you will never get lost.
Father, In the Name of Jesus, I ask You to forgive me for the times I have been dogmatic in truth forgetting about Your mercy. Your kindness leads us to repentance. I also see where I have made decisions from a place of unsanctified mercy enabling those I love to continue walking in an unrighteous manner. I desire to be led by the Spirit and not by need. I desire to follow Jesus daily because He has made a clear path before me. I choose to follow in His footsteps!
My way leads to everlasting!
