The Eternal God Brings Love and Righteousness
Scripture
But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children... Psalm 103:17 (NIV)

...with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.  Psalm 103:18 (NIV)

The Eternal God Brings Love and Righteousness


Verse 17:   But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children...

Once again we come to a blessed "But" in the Psalm.  Whereas man is mortal, God is immortal.  Whereas man is temporary, God is eternal.

This is the third time we have had the phrase "those who fear him."  We saw it back in verse 11 and also in verse 13.  Now we have it here in verse 17.  "The Lord's love is with those who fear him."

According to the Psalmist, the 2 things that will always be there for us are (1) His "love" and (2) "his righteousness."

With these 2 gifts from an eternal God, we have nothing to fear, as far as the future is concerned.

We are resting in His "love" and we are secure in "his righteousness" and not in our own.

Isaiah 61:10: I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God.  For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness...(NIV)

Proverbs 21:21: He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor (NIV)

Verse 18:  ...with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.

We learn here that "the Lord's love is": (1) with those who fear him; (2) with those who keep his covenant; and (3) with those who remember to obey his precepts.

Here we have not only the 3-fold key to the Lord's blessing on our lives, but the 3-fold key to the eternal relationship with Him.  What a glorious truth!  The Lord's love is:(1) with those who fear him; (2) with those who keep his covenant; and (3) with those who...remember to obey his precepts.

Jude 24, 25: Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen (NASB)

Let's sing a couple of verses of that wonderful hymn of testimony, "
The Solid Rock". 
My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus' name.
When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace;
In ev'ry high and stormy gale, My anchor holds within the vale.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand; All other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand.
Christ is All and in All,
