“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants” (Psalm 89:14 NLT).


The throne of a human king or judge is elevated by wood or stone and often ornamented by gold and silver to suggest their authority and judgment. But the foundation of the Lord’s throne is “righteousness and justice.” His throne is elevated by His character, which is pure and unchanging. “Unfailing love and truth” walk before Him, so that neither grace is diminished, but both fully demonstrated in His judgment.

God sent His Son to go “before” Him as the perfect embodiment of His “unfailing love and truth.” Christ fully satisfied both in His death on the cross. As a result, those who have placed their faith in Christ are now able to come boldly before the throne of God.

As the Scriptures say, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16).

PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You that both Your justice and mercy were satisfied at the cross of Christ, so that we who believe might be saved. We are in awe of You and of Your Son, Jesus the Christ. We therefore come boldly before Your throne today being confident in Christ’s provision. Lead, guide and direct us this day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
