It Went South – Thank God!

Deuteronomy 33: 2 He came with myriads of holy ones from the south¸ from his mountain slopes. (NIV)

As Christians we get to look at things differently: we give and get more back, when hit in the face we are asked to turn the other cheek, when we are wronged we can forgive.  May I offer another thing we can look at differently; having things go south is not a bad direction.

I think that saying came about because of maps, north is up and south is down. In the Hands_of_God_and_AdamBible, especially the Old Testament, south is associated with the right hand.  God’s power hand is His right hand. (In the King James and other translations south is written as the “right hand.”) I personally think His throne faces east.  So when He is on His throne that would put His right hand to the south.  Being on the “right side” of God is not a bad place to be.

∞ Thank you Father that we can go to Your South side.
