The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.

Isaiah 33:5

Zion, the holy City of God, is filled with His judgment.

What does that mean?

God knows the secret desires of our hearts, and He weighs us by not only our actions but the thoughts behind them. The evil and good-hearted dwell together. Those who seek after Christ live in the same world as those who would despise God’s loving mercy. One day will come when those who have rejected the Christ and His Way will find the reality of the sorrow of their sin.

God will not abide for sinfulness to be in His presence.

That’s why we need to turn our hearts completely to Him, repenting from our evil ways and rely completely on Him to help us love one another.

Let us lift our hearts to God as living sacrifices, calling out to Him for His wisdom and love, that we may love as He loves and trust Him in all things.
