This reminds me of another psalm verse, “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” As we love the law of the Lord we will be able to see if our pride comes against us. In this case human pride. Human pride takes offense. Divine pride sees things without reacting. It continuallly honors the nature of the LORD through the expression of ourselves. It points to the essence of what the words mean, “forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Let”s honor the LORD by the expression of our living here we find our divine pride and our human pride no longer holds sway.
As we remember the wholeness of LORD we realize His wholeness goes beyond our mental comprehension. Here we can only bow to His awesome presence and all enfolding love. As we remember we become whole ourselves. And know the honor of letting His Name increase on earth through us.
Our strength is known when our heart is oriented in a way that is honest and honoring of that which is of God. Honoring the decency of God brings enrichment to oneself as we share the character of God. As we do so our way is made perfect.
No matter what occurs keeping in mind the depth of spiritual agreement that is inborn in each of us will keep us moving wisely through our lives. Whether things seems to be good or not too good acknowledging our covenant sets the tone for a honorable life.
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.
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.
