Listen to the Word
“Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep…” (Psalm 36:5-6)
Our Scripture praises God for his righteousness. The word describes the trait of consistently acting according to a proper standard, of being in the right and doing what is right. To say God is righteous is to say that he always does the right thing. He never makes a mistake. He never does anything opposed to his nature of perfect grace and truth. No one could ever accurately say of him, “God, you shouldn’t have done that.” God is righteous.
And his righteousness is like the highest mountain. It dominates the landscape. It is massive, solid, majestic, breathtaking, impossible to miss.
Live the Word
Praise God for his righteousness. If you have recently questioned whether he did the right thing on a particular matter, confess that to him.
