Isaiah 56: 1 and 2b

This is what the LORD says: “Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation is close at hand and my righteousness will soon be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this..

Personally, I long for the blessings of the Lord, so when I see a words like those in verse 2, I want to do what it says in order to have the blessing. The blessing comes from obeying the commands in verse 1 – maintain justice and do what is right. This is not justice or what is right in the world’s eyes, but that which is right and just according to God’s Word, and His instructions. This reminds me of our instructions in Micah 6:8. He has shown you, O Man, what is good. And what the does the LORD require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
