Most have heard the scripture about the noonday sun written in Psalm 37:6. However, let’s take a moment to dive in a bit deeper today.
“5Commit your way to YAHWEH; trust in Him, and He will do it. 6He will bring forth your righteousness like the dawn, your justice like the noonday sun.”
In Psalm 37:5-6, scripture tells us to commit our ways to Yahweh’s ways. To trust in Him and He will bring forth righteousness like the dawn. It is important to understand how a life changes when a heart commits to Yah’s ways. When a heart trusts Him and walks in what He commands, righteousness comes forth. The reference to the dawn provides a beautiful visualization of what it looks like Spiritually when a Heart comes into alignment with Yahushua. It is when the darkness fades, and the LIGHT breaks through. It brings a NEW day and paints the sky with His Beauty. It is amazing what happens in a person’s life when they truly commit their ways to Him and trust Him.
Let’s read on “your justice like the noonday sun”. When Yahweh opened my eyes to a deeper meaning of this scripture it really Blessed me, and I hope it Blesses you as well! I had heard the scripture multiple times but had not stopped to pause and receive the full meaning. The noonday sun is located directly over your head. You are literally aligned perfectly with the “Son”. And when you are aligned with the “Son”, there is no shadow. Have you ever noticed that with the noon sun? Take a moment to pause and receive the importance of the dawn and noonday “Son” in your personal walk. How does it relate to your personal walk with Him?
The entire chapter of Psalm 37 is very powerful and so incredibly relevant to what many are facing and need to stand in today. Yahweh moved my Heart to include the entire chapter in the Message so you can read and meditate on it today.
As I was reading it, He guided me to understand the Hebrew word for righteousness which is “tsadiyq”. It translates as upright or straight (aka straight path, walking the narrow path with Yahweh in His ways). It is one who follows the path of Yahweh (as we just discussed in Psalm 37:5, commit your way to Yahweh). As we read Psalm 37, you will also notice it speaks about the wicked. The Hebrew word for wicked is “rasha”. It means to depart from Yahweh. As you enter to read Psalm 37 with Him today, apply the Hebrew meaning of righteousness and wicked to bring an even deeper understanding of this scripture. Ask the Ruach Hakodesh to reveal an even deeper meaning to you as He guides you across the pages of scripture.
1Do not fret over those who do evil;
2For they wither quickly like grass
3Trust in YAHWEH and do good;
4Delight yourself in YAHWEH,
5Commit your way to YAHWEH;
6He will bring forth your righteousness like the dawn,
7Be still before YAHWEH
and wait patiently for Him;
do not fret when men prosper in their ways,
8Refrain from anger and abandon wrath;
9For the evildoers will be cut off,
10Yet a little while, and the wicked will be no more;
11But the meek will inherit the land
12The wicked scheme against the righteous
13but Yahweh laughs,
14The wicked have drawn the sword
and bent the bow
to bring down the poor and needy,
15But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
16Better is the little of the righteous
17For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
18YAHWEH knows the days of the blameless,
19In the time of evil they will not be ashamed,
20But the wicked and enemies of YAHWEH
will perish like the glory of the fields.
They will vanish;
21The wicked borrow and do not repay,
22Surely those He blesses will inherit the land,
23The steps of a man are ordered by YAHWEH
24Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed,
25I once was young and now am old,
yet never have I seen the righteous abandoned
26They are ever generous and quick to lend,
27Turn away from evil and do good,
28For YAHWEH loves justice
and will not forsake His saints.
They are preserved forever,
29The righteous will inherit the land
30The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom,
31The law of his God is in his heart;
32Though the wicked lie in wait for the righteous,
33YAHWEH will not leave them in their power
34Wait for YAHWEH and keep His way,
and He will raise you up to inherit the land.
When the wicked are cut off,
35I have seen a wicked, ruthless man
36yet he passed away and was no more;
37Consider the blameless and observe the upright,
38But the transgressors will all be destroyed;
39The salvation of the righteous is from YAHWEH;
40YAHWEH helps and delivers them;
He rescues and saves them from the wicked,
because they take refuge in Him.
Yahweh Bless you and keep you, with MUCH Love!
