Surely the Righteous

Hello, God has given me something in Psalm 58:11 which says,

“Then people will say,
    “Surely the righteous still are rewarded; 
    surely there is a God who judges the earth.””

David asked god to pretty much get rid of the wicked. He asked God to break their teeth, and rip the fangs out of those lions. He said that when the wicked were swept away, then the righteous would rejoice. The people would say that, “Surely the righteous still are rewarded; surely there is a God who judges the earth.”. If the wicked were blown away, then the people would know that there was a God who rewarded the righteous.

We were not righteous. Does that mean that we are wicked, and we will be blown away? By ourselves, yes, we would be blown away like the wicked… because we were wicked. So, why haven’t we been blown away? Because, Jesus came and He died for us. He lived a perfect life, and He was righteous, He was actually deserving of a reward. But, Jesus gave up the reward for us. He died in our place, and He made us righteous, so now, we can have the reward. What is our reward? Jesus, and heaven. We go to  heaven because Jesus has made us righteous, and then we can worship Jesus, our Lord.

Unbelievers are not saved. They are not righteous. If you are an unbeliever, then why don’t you come to Christ? Why not be loved? Why not be made righteous in Him, and cleansed from your sin? He is mighty to save, and He will save you, so just come to Him and you will be made righteous. Your heart will be filled with love for Jesus and for others. Your heart will be pure. So, just come to the savior.

Believers should praise God! We should give thanks, for He has given His son for us. He has made us righteous, and He has let us be rewarded by His perfection. Let’s praise our Lord and savior! Let’s give Him all we have, for He gave His all for us. “Jesus, thank You” He has given His own life for us in our place on the cross! He gave us His righteousness. He has loved us so much, so let’s love Him with all of our heart. Let’s give thanks! Let’s “Praise God from whom all blessings flow”!

Believers should praise God and help others. We should give the Gospel to unbelievers who need help, and also to believers who are struggling. Every believer is attacked by Satan in  some way, and when we see our fellow believer being attacked, then we should give him/her the Gospel. If they are being attacked with pride, then give them the Gospel and show them that we were sinners, and we were made righteous by Christ. If they are being attacked with sorrow, then let’s give them the Gospel, and show them how much Christ loves us. And, let’s give the Gospel to those who do not believe, that they might come to repentance.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your son for me. Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for saving me. Thank You for making me Your child. Thank You for making me righteous, and letting me be able to go to heaven. Please help me to praise You more. Please help me to give thanks to You. Please send a revival and help other believers to be strengthened in You. Please help me not to be proud. Please help me to be stronger. Thank You for blessing me so much. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
