“For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous. . .” Psalm 1:6 Amplified Bible
How grateful I am!! The Lord knows my way!!
And then I hear a little voice in my head asking, “How can you be so bold and conceited to think that you are righteous? You? Righteous? Look at who you are? Look at your past? Ok. Never mind the past??!! What about yesterday? What about how you responded to that child? You clearly messed up! You? Righteous? Funny joke.”
But I quickly recognize the accusing voice of my enemy. My God brings conviction. The enemy brings shame and condemnation. And those questions were clearly the latter.
Because now that I am “in Christ” there is “no condemnation!!” Romans 8:1
And I am righteous because Jesus gives me His “robe of righteousness.” Isaiah 61:10
I am righteous. And the Lord knows my way.
Now that’s a settling, comforting, empowering thought for my Saturday!
