Beautiful Law, Safe God
“The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.”
Psalms 14:2 NKJV
Our degree of Surrender is directly proportionate to the degree we understand that God is safe and we have no reason to resist his loving advances. God’s law is meant to stand as a articulation of His character, a public manifesto of his love and wisdom.
What do we see when we look into his law? Do we see coercive limits upon our freedom and happiness? Or do we see something else, something which outlines and protects relationship? Is God’s law a blessing or a curse?
Everyone will either discern the nature of God’s law and surrender or resist what they do not understand. Many accusations have been leveled against God’s law over the years, yet those who actually search it out for themselves find a beauty beyond compare. They find rest from the exhausting demands of selfishness and protection from evil. Everything about God is wonderful, and his law is no exception.
