But what does that mean? God’s righteousness refers to the fact His nature, thoughts, feelings and actions are always right or correct. God’s righteousness means He Himself is the final absolute or perfect standard of what is right and just. What He is by nature is right. What He has decided is right is right and just is just. What is contrary to His nature is wrong. What He has determined is wrong is wrong and unjust is unjust. No one decided for God what is right and wrong, just and unjust.
 
God’s righteousness also refers to the fact all His commands, rewards and punishments are absolutely just and right and involve no favouritism towards anyone. God’s rewards are based to some degree on His unmerited grace. God is absolutely righteous in the sense there is nothing in His nature, thoughts or actions which is contrary to His own perfectly right standards. God is also perfectly righteous in the relative sense that, He never treats any human, angel or demon in an incorrect or unjust manner.
 
Let me explain this further. God’s righteousness was not given to Him by someone else. He always has been and will be perfectly right in everything He is, thinks, feels or does. His righteousness had no beginning. God’s righteousness is His own total consistency with His own nature and being. God is inherently right by nature.
 
In Psalm 89:14, we observe one of the foundations of God’s throne is righteousness or justice: “Justice and judgement are the habitation of thy throne…” Psalm 97:2, Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Psalm 33:5 shows God loves righteousness and associated perfect judgement: “He loveth righteousness and judgement…”.
Psalm 19:8-9 states that whatever God commands or judges is right or just: “The statues of the Lord are right…The judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.” Isaiah 45:19 shows whatever He says is right: “…I, the Lord, speak righteousness. I declare things that are right.”
 
Family, I want you to be encouraged and remember that regardless of what is happening in our world right now remember, that our God reigns eternally. So, let’s put our hope and faith in Him and He will lead us into all truth.
 
First Lady and I love and miss you all.

God bless you
