I give thanks to You, O heavenly Father, that You are close to Your people and will one day judge the world in righteousness. I praise and glorify Your holy name, for Your Word of truth, and the great comfort I gain from psalmists like Asaph, whose trust and confidence in You, is reflected in their edifying psalms of praise and thanksgiving. Thank You that You are a God of justice as well as a great God of love, and that a day is coming when You will stand up as Judge of the earth, and put all wrongs to right. Thank You that You will one day punish those that speak with insolent pride, as they drink the dregs of Your justified anger, and thank You that the strength of evil men will one day be cut off and Your people will be raised up into newness of life. Thank You that I am Your child and I will sing praises to You in Your court forever. In Jesus' name, I pray, AMEN.
