Being upright relates to an upright posture physically and also mentally and emotionally. Whatever situation we may be facing keeping an upright stance allows us to meet the challenges we have at hand. Just remember to remain upright in terms of keeping your integrity and honor. Honor the presence of the Lord by remaining true to HIs character of strength and nobility. As we do so we allow HIs presence to come through us in meeting the situations at hand. Here we find victory and increase in waxing in grace and stature.
What is the right hand of God? The right hand is the hand symbolized by the right positive action of God on earth. It is the hand that acts with decency and a perspective of the whole and what would bring blessings to mankind. The right hand allows for action to be taken that would bless others. Let’s let our positive action increase the wholeness of God on earth.
The lowly are the humble and those that keep their honor. Their honor and integrity mean the most to those that are considered lowly in this verse. As we keep honoring the Lord through the integrity and honesty of our living the Lord does have respect for us. Respect that brings his abundant love and encouragement into our hearts and minds. Lowly does not mean graveling in the dirt for the sins we may commit. As we honestly view our actions and correct any misguided ways we may have we lift up our heads as the Lord would have us do and move on with our living knowing we are instantly forgiven and needed to carry on the work of increasing the name and influence of the Lord on earth. Let’s let our living be an example of honesty, honor and integrity as we have been uniquely designed to be.
As we acknowledge the place in which we are to dwell with humility and honor it sets the stage for the right commands to be issued in our living. We all have choices to make. If they are predicated from a place that is sound and tranquil we will have the wisdom to know what to do according to what is ripe at hand. It is a matter of moving with the rhythms and cycles that are in phase not doing what cannot be done now but simply doing what can be done. Let’s stay in sync with the rhythms that spring from that which we honor most.
