April 28: Righteousness

Isaiah 26:5-9a

For He brings down those who dwell on high, 
the lofty city; 
He lays it low, 
He lays it low to the ground, 
He brings it down to the dust.

The foot shall tread it down—
the feet of the poor
and the steps of the needy.”

The way of the just is uprightness; 
O Most Upright, 
You weigh the path of the just.

Yes, in the way of Your judgments, 
O Lord, we have waited for You; 
the desire of our soul is for Your name
and for the remembrance of You.

With my soul I have desired You in the night, 
yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early.

God’s righteousness will never be found in government, religion or even in man’s good works.  God’s righteousness comes from a changed and transformed heart, available to all, but only through faith in Yeshua.
