God fulfills covenants in order to bless the righteous (Psalm 5) August 16/2017

David knew God’s faithfulness included the fulfilling of the Davidic covenant (God’s covenant with David). David knew that the righteous will be blessed as they continue their trust in God.

David always implored God to listen and to consider his meditation. David understood God! He understood that God does not look on man’s outward appearance, but He looks upon the heart.  David always focused on God’s holiness and His fatherly compassion.

David knew the only reason he could enter the Lord’s house and worship was because of God’s abundant lovingkindness. God does not take pleasure in wickedness, for no evil lives in God! The boastful do not stand before Him, for He hates all sin; He abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man. With this knowledge David continued Psalm 5 with these words,

”But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy;

In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple.

Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies;

Make Your way straight before my face.”

David was confident of the outcome of following the Lord. Those who take refuge in Him will be glad.. sing for joy. The Lord will bless the righteous and surround him with favor.
