August 27: Righteousness

Job considered himself a righteous man because of all the good things he had done. But he expected something in return Therefore when he did not receive the same kind treatment from others, he was very upset.

When God looked at Job, He looked beyond what Job did, He looked at the way Job feared God. 

Job 30:24-28

“Surely no one lays a hand on a broken man
    when he cries for help in his distress.
Have I not wept for those in trouble?
    Has not my soul grieved for the poor?
Yet when I hoped for good, evil came;
    when I looked for light, then came darkness.
The churning inside me never stops;
    days of suffering confront me.
I go about blackened, but not by the sun;
    I stand up in the assembly and cry for help.

 

No one can ever do enough good things to be acceptable to God.  Only God grace through faith in Yeshua can make our hearts acceptable.

 

PRAY THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES TO RECEIVE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT CAN ONLY COME FROM GOD.
