“HOLY IS THE LORD!”

Read Psalm 46.

We are here taught,

  1. To take comfort in God when things look threatening verses 1-5.
  2. To point out the great things he has produced for his church against its enemy’s verses 6-9.
  3. To reassure us that God will glorify Himself verses 10-11.

It is said of Martin Luther that, when he heard any discouraging news, he would say, “Come let us sing the forty- sixth psalm.”

There is not much for us to depend upon in this life BUT GOD…because:

I. HE IS RIGHT IN HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Genesis 18:25 “That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”

Jesus prayed in John 17:25, “O righteous Father, the world hath not known Thee, but I have known Thee…and these have known that Thou hast sent me.”

In Genesis 18:25, “Abraham pleading with the righteous Father.”

II. HE IS JUST IN HIS JUSTICE.

2 Corinthians 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”=

Revelation 20:13 “And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.”

“THE JUSTICE OF GOD is that essential attribute which makes his nature and his ways perfect Deuteronomy 32:4; Psalm 89:14. The justice of God could not leave the world without laws, and cannot fail to vindicate them by executing their penalties; and as all mankind perpetually break them, every human soul is under condemnation, and must perish, unless spared through the accepted ransom, the blood of Christ.” American Tract Society Dictionary.
