Our Righteous God

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

God made Himself known to us by means of His many attributes. The Psalmist declared, “He is…righteous.” That’s who God is. He went on to say, “His righteousness endures forever” [Psalm 112:3] and, “reaches to the sky” [Psalm 71:19]. 

God is righteous, and everything He does is righteous. His decrees are righteous [Romans 1:32]. His judgment is righteous [Romans 2:5]. His acts are righteous [Daniel 9:16]. Daniel declared, “God is right in everything He does” [Daniel 9:14].

God is right about everything and every action. He has never made a wrong decision, had a wrong attitude, walked down the wrong path, done or said the wrong thing, or acted in the wrong way. He has never been too late or too early, too fast or too slow, too loud or too soft.

He has alway been and will always be right. That is the God we love and serve. That is the God Christ followers strive to be like. We can be more like Him when we are full of His Spirit. Paul said it this way, “…for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” [Romans 14:17]. 

Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; He is gracious, and full of compassion and righteous. Psalm 112:4
