I Know a Place . . .

I know a place where justice and righteousness is always present: “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before You.” Psalm 89:14

I know a place where mercy and grace are available in our time of need: “Therefore let us draw draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16

I know a place where all people are welcome to fulfill their created purpose: “All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, and they shall glorify Your name.” Psalm 86:9

I know a place where my rebellion can be forgiven: “For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.” Psalm 86:5

I know a place where my cries of affliction are heard: “Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me; for I am afflicted and needy.” Psalm 86:1

I know a place that will give me happiness in the midst of all the difficulty: “How blessed are those who dwell in Your house! They are ever praising You. Selah.” Psalm 84:4.

I know a place where we can find peace: “Lovingkindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.” Psalm 85:10.

I know a place that provides light and shelter in the midst of darkness and danger: “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Psalm 84:11.

 

Wait . . .

This is not a place, this is a Person: “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matt 11:28–30).

To all of us sinners: come to Christ.
To the hurting: come to Christ.
To the confused: come to Christ.
To the weary: come to Christ.

There is only one Person that can fix all of this. 

He sits on the universal throne; He lives forever and ever; He is Jesus Christ.

  1. I attend EVFree Church in Fullerton, CA. and an adult fellowship there of about 80 older adults. I also edit a little monthly class newsletter updating all the missionaries we support. Would you allow me to reprint this article with all due credits given? Thank you for your time and consideration. Gratefully, Kaya Lien

    1. Hello Kaya!

      We here at Contend for Truth are very familiar with EV Free Fullerton! We’re all from the SoCal area. Of course, feel free to reprint the blog.

  2. I can imagine this as a great responsive or choral reading. Might I have your permission to use it in a livestream for my church, giving credit where credit is due? Thanks for considering
