There Is No Unrighteousness in Him

There Is No Unrighteousness in Him

Stuff happens.      We see lost and wicked people everywhere  doing every evil imaginable.     It’s hard to fathom  why they seem to be flourishing  all over the place.     The psalmist tells us that they will be “destroyed forevermore.”   (Psalm 92)      God’s children,  on the other hand,  will live forevermore  in “the house of the LORD”.     We are a part  of God’s family  and are  under our heavenly Father’s protection,  so that whether we live or die,  suffer or receive blessings,  we are the Lord’s.

No matter what things seem to be like  in this world,  we are eternally safe  in God’s hands.     We may be facing all sorts  of suffering — but we are still safe  in God’s hands.     The world might not think so,  but they don’t know God  or His power.     When the worldly people face their troubles,  their first thought is that God is unrighteous.     They even imagine how they would do a better job  in running this world.     That is utter foolishness  because we are all so obviously sinners  without all knowledge.

God’s children realize His holiness and righteousness.     Even as they suffer here,  they know that God’s love,  mercy,  and faithfulness are watching over them.     That is why the psalmist sings  about how they will become strong  in the LORD,  and “will still yield fruit  in old age.”     Their trials and sufferings do not blind them  to the fact  that God is holy now,  has always been holy,  and will always be holy.     God does not sin  in what He allows.

Rather,  in His almighty power,  our Lord knows how  to use these trials and temptations  to strengthen us  in His truths.     So,  we will always be able  to look back on our sufferings  and see  that God was with us  all along — perfecting and strengthening us  in His holiness.

When all is said and done,  the psalmist is right  to declare  in Psalm 92:15,  that all this is happening,

To declare  that the LORD is upright;
He is my rock,  and  there is no unrighteousness  in Him.

That is forever true.     There never has been any unrighteousness  in the LORD  and there never will be.     We can trust His salvation  in Jesus Christ  and all of His word to us.     It is all true  in light  of all eternity.

Thinking on God’s holiness, we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  You truly do make us glad with all that You have done.     As we think  on all Your works  throughout life — all the wonders  that You perform — we surely do ‘sing for joy  at the works  of Thy hands.’
