Favor

The righteous are those who wait for the Lord to justify them and the wicked are those who arrange justice for themselves.  
In the lines of Psalm 37, David identifies this contrast between the righteous and the wicked as well as these others: The righteous are those who generously promote Life; while the wicked are those who aggressively promote destruction and Death.  The righteous are those who turn the other cheek when stolen from; while the wicked are those who angrily demand more then they have ever lost… .and so on.
David concludes that all who wait on God for justice… .all who in the mean time do not demand it for themselves from any other source, but rather they turn the other cheek and feed and clothe and pray for their enemies. …will have the justice of their cause promoted by the Lord - as inescapably promoted as the noonday sun!   At some point in the scope of eternity, those who put their trust in the Lord in an everyday, personal way, will receive an advertised judgment in their favor.  
 Security is personally realized with the acted upon conviction that you exist inside a system designed to promote your highest good… .and all you have to do is trust a capable, eternal Person in everything, all of the time.  All you have to do is believe His everyday Words to you.  All you have to do is enjoy His interceding Spirit.  All you have to do is join Him in loving Life.  He’s got the rest.  He will not abandon you to Sheol, the grave.  But He will love and exalt your life because you chose to save lives with Him at any cost.  
  “I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me.  O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.  O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit,” Psalm 30:1-3.  
Noonday sun. …can’t miss it.  And you can’t miss a New Creation who has put their full trust in the Lord for redemption and restoration.  You are not a victim to your losses.  You are victorious Zion - eternally, favorably judged - where Christ dwells…
