Psalm 1121Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
9He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
Balance and moderation seem to be the key to the majority of things in life and the combination of attributes we have gone through are a perfect example of that. If it were not for this delicate balance you’d almost get a Jeckel and Hyde effect.
First, you had Loving-kindness, then Severity and Strength and now Beauty. All of which are extremes from one another. Along with balance and moderation, timing too is essential; knowing when to employ any given combination of attributes. I suppose this symmetry is the Beauty of His Majesty, like a silent regulator it along with Holiness keeps everything in balance and in check.
We were created symmetrical beings and therefore love and are drawn to things with symmetry and we find beauty in such things. Psalm 112 as we read is all about such Majestically Beautiful Symmetry.
“Abba ADONAI God, though we finite beings are attracted to symmetry, it seems our souls are anything but, ever in flux. We slip and slide from one extreme to another. I guess this testifies to the fact that we like absolutes too. I pray Abba Father that You would conform me into the Perfect and Majestically Beautiful Balance of Your Son Yeshua Messiah, the Living Torah. In His Name I pray, Ameyn.”
